Topcon Positioning Group's new ClearEdge3D development and sales partnership with Rithm, a 3D laser scanning software for construction QA/QC, is prominently advancing the Topcon concrete application. The new hardware and software bundle option is part of the company's comprehensive approach to modernize core concrete applications such as layout, quality control, and concrete screed with the latest capabilities in precise positioning technology.
Implementing Rithm on projects for wet, or dry concrete scanning is designed to allow the opportunity to perform FFL analysis directly from scan data loaded into the Autodesk Navisworks software. Operators can find floor flatness and levelness mistakes in near real time from scan-to-finish. The data Rithm provides allows project teams to easily visualize high and low areas with elevation and deviation heat-maps and contour maps.
“By bundling this software with Topcon’s GLS-2000 scanner, contractors can improve their QA workflows to reduce floor profiling costs by performing FFL analysis in-house in near real time,” says AlokSrivastava, Topcon Director of Product Management. “Through the integration with Navisworks, Rithm provides contractors fast, and detailed ASTM E1155 compliant FFL reports with streamlined floor flatness and levelness analysis, thereby cutting down time on waiting for scanning analysis, increasing productivity.
