Autodesk is teaming with Leica Geosystems to streamline workflows, simplify layouts and make accessing data easier for its customers. Collaboration between the two companies will provideBIM-to-field layout and reality capture solutions, enabling Autodesk users to leverage data from Leica sensors directly within Autodesk authoring tools.
“Leica Geosystems is a recognized leader in quality measurement solutions,” said Amar Hanspal, Autodesk Senior Vice President, Information Modeling & Platform Group. “By pairing these solutions with Autodesk’s industry-leading software packages for CAD and BIM, customers will have easy access to accurate, high-quality data at every stage of construction, which provides benefits to all stakeholders. It’s an exciting time to be in the AEC market.”

Multiple technology integrations are being explored and will roll out over time to benefit customers in laser scanning, building construction layout and related industries. The following integrations will soon be available:
Simplifying BIM-to-Field Layout
Users of Autodesk BIM software, including AutoCAD, Autodesk Revit and Autodesk Navisworks, can conduct BIM-based as-builting and quality assurance in the field using the Autodesk BIM 360 Layout iPad app, which communicates directly with Leica iCON robot 50 robotic total stations. The ability to control the full-featured robotic total station through the iPad app provides accurate layout and makes as-builting of points faster and easier.
Streamlining Reality Capture Workflows
New hardware and software integrations will make viewing and accessing 3D data faster and easier. Users will be able to import native point cloud data from the Leica ScanStation P16 laser scanner directly into Autodesk ReCap for a streamlined, simplified workflow that makes it easier for new users to reap the benefits of 3D data capture.
