Trimble introduced Site Contractor Extension for construction professionals
SketchUp can improve your designing and visualizing skills in three-dimensional space. Application of sketchup can be found in various trades ranging from architecture to 3D printing as well as construction. Sketchup can enhance the productivity of any construction project and minimize overall cost.
In this regard, Trimble just released Trimble Site Contractor Extension (extensions.sketchup.com). By using this newest sketchup extension, the contractors get the ability to design constructible models in SketchUp and export data into Trimble’s field-ready technologies like SCS900 and GCS900. SCS900 facilitates a contractor to place a 3D design in the field through GPS technology. The users can obtain instructions on-screen in the cab of the machine to make their construct process more accurate and accelerate equating to enhance productivity.
With this extension, the contractors can work with 3D data from construction documents, or generate their own 3D data sets which can be utilized in the jobsite. This will provide huge benefits to everyone associated with the design-construct world.
Landscape architecture can use this sketchup extension to import a Google Maps image of a customer’s property and accurately design in SketchUp. Arrange that design on the property and correctly identify where the features fit in.
The users can access the Trimble Site Contractor Extension at free of cost and download it from the Extension Warehouse (extensions.sketchup.com). This sketchup extension supports Mac or Window platform and sketchup 2016. To get more updates on SCS900 and GCS900, please visit Trimble Civil Engineering and Construction website (http://construction.trimble.com/).
