Sitemaster Building TS

Building Survey with Laser Measures and Total Stations
SiteMaster BuildingTS – added Total Station functionality

Connect a Total Station
SiteMaster BuildingTS contains the same features as SiteMaster Building and offers a direct link to a Total Station. Through the combination of hand laser meters and Total Stations the working process is optimised when doing building surveys.

Survey for example the outside surface of a building with a Total Station and the inside building survey with a Laser Measure. You are creating the complete drawing on-site minimising the risk of producing any errors. The system allows you make corrections on-site.

SiteMaster BuildingTS supports the protocol of popular Total Stations of the following companies: Leica, Topcon, Trimble or South. (other manufacturers being added now)

The extensive features of SiteMaster Building are especially interesting for users that need to create and deliver professional CAD drawings.

The layer management supports the combination of several floor plans in one single file. Heights of rooms, openings and symbols can be recorded and exported. Lasered distances are recorded in the background and saved on an extra layer for proofing purposes.

A library allows to draw fast and accurate walls (as single or double line), windows, doors and symbols. You can draw rectangular and circular columns, Recesses/chimneys and niches/ducts.

SiteMaster BuildingTS offers you more than 250 CAD and numerous editing commands. The program features associative dimensioning and room area calculation.

The Camera function allows you to insert icon-referenced inspection photos and images. SiteMaster Building contains an Image function for direct insertion and scaling of photos and image underlays with support for file formats as BMP, JPG, PNG, TIFF and RLC digital photos and images.

VoiceNotes that can easily been inserted eliminate time consuming text markup by providing record and playback of high-compressed audio notes and instructions directly inside your drawings.

AutoCAD compatible drawing symbols blocks can be used. The Visual Symbol Manager lets you insert symbols ? as-measured, referenced or free in the drawing. You can export Excel-compatible .csv files with room/area lists and room schedule reports/symbol lists. The Check Distance function lets you compare »as-built« distances to plan distances and record this comparison.

Experienced power users can use the visual Desktop, Menu and Toolbar Editor (DME2) and Lisp and/or C++ programming APIs to customize and extend the program.

The combination: Laser Measures and Total Stations in SiteMaster BuildingTS optimises the working process when doing large or complicated building surveys. Survey for example the outside surface of a building with a Total Station and the inside with a Laser Measure. You create the complete drawing on-site, any errors shown allows you the opportunity to make corrections there and then.

SiteMaster BuildingTS offers additional features:

• Import and Export of standpoint coordinates through ASCII-Files
• Point, Arc and Line creation via Total Station Input
• Symbol Insertion via Total Station Input
• Data Export of Stations and Measured Points
