Fast and accurate layout is crucial to keeping building construction projects on schedule and on budget. That’s why professionals are increasingly turning to digital layout with robotic total stations to get the job done. Capabilities such as fully automatic layout routines and easy handling of fully rendered 3D design models in the field make modern robotic total stations the most effective way to layout lines for footings or formwork, layout points before pouring concrete, layout hangar locations for HVAC or ductwork, or perform other layout operations. The most advanced robotic total stations enable automated setup, one-person operation, the ability to remain locked on your target for highest point-to-point layout speed, the ability to “tune out” other distractions in the field, and fast relock when line of sight is interrupted.

A new video series from Leica Geosystems shows how to perform construction layout tasks easily and take your layout to the next level with digital layout technology. Watch the videos below.
