Trimble this week has updated its Trimble Field Link software to version 2.20 for the latest iteration for management of layout tasks associated with building construction. The tool helps contractors and teams by providing task-based workflows, customizable views, and a touch-screen UI to optimize the data presented.
To find the exact location of a point in the field, users can now visualize where they are inside the 3D model relative to the layout point in their Trimble Field Link software, giving a more intuitive, realistic 3D perspective viewpoint and making it easier to navigate to the selected point.
The 2.20 update encompasses updates to Trimble Field Link for MEP and Field Link for Structures field software, which now included augmented 3D model support, as well as enhanced in-model perspective layout view for a more productive and realistic field layout experience.
Integration for Bentley i-models for Accelerated Project Delivery
Trimble has also announced its collaboration with Bentley Systems to enhance information mobility between the design and field construction processes. This enables collaboration between uses to share their 3D constructible models between design and engineering applications and Trimble Field Link 2.20 via Bentley’s mobile i-model technology. A Bentley CONNECTIONS Passport, which entitles use of Bentley’s mobile apps and mobile i-models, is provided with Trimble Field Link.

Using i-models project teams can exchange and distribute package of information within multi-organizational, multi-disciplinary, and multi-phase construction projects to continue uninterrupted workflows, and to easily adapt to real-time project changes.
“By joining forces with Bentley, Trimble is giving contractors and other building construction professionals greater choice, accuracy and flexibility in performing their field layout tasks,” said Mark Sawyer, general manager of the General Contractor / Construction Manager Division at Trimble Buildings Group. “Our companies share complementary visions of boosting productivity in all facets of construction projects, and we’re pleased to connect our advanced technologies to deliver greater benefits to the industry.
