The program combines the precise laser technology of Leica Geosystems for accuracy and, in real-time, ties into the CADWorx intelligent plant design systems to produce deliverables in the field, allowing modeling of the as-built installations to be easily completed onsite with less manpower and with full accuracy. The article was based on interviews with Greg Miller, operations manager for Image Field Services, and Don Nuckels, PE, the president of Image CES. By using CADWorx fieldPipe, the article describes how Image Field Services completed in six months what would have taken years to do using traditional manual methods. “To my knowledge, this is the largest project on which CADWorx fieldPipe has been used here, and it never missed a beat,” Nuckels explains in the article.
