Topcon Positioning Systems has announced the first results of its collaboration with Autodesk: A direct link to AutoCAD WS within Topcon's Magnet Enterprise cloud service.
This new capability will provide a direct path for field and office data to flow seamlessly from collection, design, review and adjustment between Magnet Enterprise and AutoCAD WS, saving multiple steps and software conversions that have typically been required, the company says. The new capability is automatically available to all users of Magnet Enterprise.
Topcon's Magnet suite of productivity software products includes Magnet Enterprise, a cloud-based service that connects mobile and office software products and provides a Web-based interface to company data and assets. The AutoCAD WS Web and mobile application for AutoCAD software enables customers to view, edit, and share DWG files through a Web browser or mobile device. The integration will allow field workers to automatically document their site measurements directly from Topcon devices to AutoCAD WS, creating industry standard DWG deliverables.
