Trimble FieldLink MR Makes Layout Faster by Combining the Visual Context of a Fully Immersive 3D Model with the Precision of Trimble's Layout Instruments
Trimble announced today an innovative
mixed-reality solution for construction layout with the introduction of the
FieldLink MR app. Built on the powerful Trimble Connect® collaboration
platform, Trimble FieldLink MR offers a completely new way to perform
construction layout, enabling professionals to quickly navigate to tasks on the
jobsite—getting more done in less time. The app runs on the Trimble® XR10 with
HoloLens 2, a hardhat-integrated mixed-reality device.
Trimble will demonstrate this new
innovation at the International Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigerating
(AHR) Expo 2022 in Las Vegas this week, booth number N9922.
With Trimble FieldLink MR, field
crews can easily visualize construction data without relying on a handheld
controller for step-by-step navigation to locate each point. Visual cues
presented through the mixed-reality hardhat naturally lead workers directly to
each point for them to physically lay out pertinent information on the
construction site. Attracting and retaining skilled workers remains a key
challenge for many contractors, reducing the complexity of layout in the field
will be essential to enable less experienced staff to deliver quality work the
"Trimble's FieldLink solution
enables users to precisely position digital construction information in the
physical world. FieldLink MR is an extension of this application, which
seamlessly integrates cutting edge mixed-reality technology to help
construction professionals be more effective on site. This integration offers
more efficient and intuitive workflows by making the layout process more
natural and contextual," said Martin Holmgren, general manager for
Trimble's Building Construction Field Solutions Division.
Trimble's layout and mixed-reality
solutions are part of the Trimble Connected Construction ecosystem, leveraging
the Trimble Connect collaboration platform. Contractors from different trades
and in all phases of the construction lifecycle can work together to enable
more automated layout and fabrication. Field productivity solutions are driven
directly by constructible data, reducing the need for data conversions and the
potential for error. Using constructible data and real-time collaboration,
project stakeholders can work together seamlessly, optimizing the design, build
and operate lifecycle.
Trimble FieldLink MR is expected to be available in the first half of 2022 from Trimble and BuildingPoint™ distribution partners and will be downloadable through the Microsoft Store.
