Hey looking for different ideas on extracting data using TBC, from point cloud scans of individual steel columns. I essentially want to check how plumb each individual column is at predefined heights above the base.   My first thought is a thin cutting plane at the base elevation, find the center by averaging the points and using this as the… (Show more)

I have spent the last couple of days putting an existing code library into an FXL, and wanted to share some pain, thoughts and feelings on the process for anyone interested.   I also want to share some pain here as a user.   Brief: Create a FXL with ~410 codes, about 190 point features and 220 line styles We were provided a DWG file with the… (Show more)

Hello. Just wondering what would be the best way to setout a grid of points from an engineering drawing (footings for wooden deck) once the location and orientation of the structure is decided insitu. Would just be arbitrary coords assigned to the gridlines and setout points (1000,1000,1000) no requirement to tie into exiting survey network,… (Show more)

Click to view contentHi, I measured a traverse with Access and measured station and target heights to the bottom notch. But I used a custom prism constant. Now, when I drag'n drop the Job file into TBC 5.20.2 it complains "The height measurement method is incompatible with Custom prism. The true vertical height method is assumed." That is nonsense, and from my… (Show more)

I have three more improvements that I would like to see added to Trimble field software.    1-for survey pro and access field. When leveling the total station(S series), after looking through the plummet you have to spin the gun so that you have Face 1 towards yourself for the adjustment screws to behave correctly in relation to the digital… (Show more)

I have made a feature library that includes line control codes that I want to use in the field during a topo survey. I have made a beginning code that creates a new line sequence and also an ending code that closes the line to the first point of the sequence however I am not sure what code to use in between the beginning and end. When i tried this… (Show more)
