Linking 3D models and data

By Adam Freill   


Trimble’s Jobsite Connectivity Bundle, a software bundle that links 3D models and data across Trimble civil construction hardware and software solutions, is designed to provide an efficient and reliable transfer of files throughout the construction lifecycle.

The interoperability of the bundle makes it possible for users to synchronize projects and data to share and collaborate on construction files and all other compatible solutions. Design data from the office solutions uploaded to Trimble Connect can now be shared with machines and surveyors in the field who are using the Trimble Earthworks Grade Control Platform, Trimble Siteworks Positioning Systems and Trimble Access survey software.

“The future of construction is digital, and the release of the Trimble Jobsite Connectivity Bundle is a significant step forward in terms of making sharing and collaborating on 3D designs and project data faster, easier, more reliable and more efficient,” said Elwyn McLachlan, vice-president for Trimble Civil Software. “We frequently hear from customers that the disconnect between the design and the field is one of their biggest pain points. This solution is designed to help solve that problem by reducing the burden of handing off data and design files between the engineer and the field crew.”

The bundle connects the following software solutions:

  • Trimble Connect Collaboration Software
  • Trimble Business Center
  • Trimble WorksManager Software
  • Trimble WorksOS Software

It also enables interoperability between other software solutions integrated with Trimble Connect, including SketchUp, Trimble Quadri BIMsoftware and third-party solutions.
