Trimble LM80 Field Software:Taking Design to the Jobsite

Trimble building construction positioning solutions give contractors more control of their job sites... allowing significant improvements in construction accuracy and productivity. The pocket-sized Trimble® LM80 Layout Manager lets you carry, manage, work with, and lay out your job site blueprint. This convenience, combined with the power of wireless communication for design updates, a common user interface and specialized software make the LM80 a revolutionary tool and the heart of The Connected Construction Site.

By connecting your office and job site through wireless data transfer, design updates can flow between field and office in real time. Jobs can be created and maintained by someone in the main office and emailed to various sites. Daily layout progress can be monitored. Every question can be answered instantly. Every decision is an informed one… the bottom line is greater control, cost savings and maximized productivity.


Using the Trimble LM80 Layout Manager with a Trimble Construction Total Station ( TS200 , TS500 or TS600 ) and the LM80 Desktop software – you can:

  • Take CAD designs or BIM data into the field.
  • Lay out complex concrete forms or anchor bolts from any location by referencing any two known points.
  • Lay out control points and offset hubs faster and more cost-effectively. Work on your schedule.
  • Lay out all lines from one reference location with no string lines, transits or theodolites.
  • Make minor adjustments to the building position as needed without waiting or paying subcontractor fees.
  • Check the work of others and create documentation for change orders when necessary. Direct Reflex capabilities make as-built checks a one-person job.
  • Lay out control lines for subcontractors faster and more accurately than with tapes and theodolites.
  • Easily collect topographical data and import it into third-party software for elevation and cut and fill analysis.

Trimble LM80 Desktop Software - Powerful and Easy to Use

Trimble® LM80 Desktop software is designed for the contractor using the pocket-sized Trimble LM80 Layout Manager for their layout applications. It's the ideal companion for anyone working with very large or complex drawings.

sc-surveying-ls-1Featuring an intuitive graphical user interface, LM80 Desktop software makes it easy to create a digital replica of your construction blueprint in the office, before going out on the site to do the layout. While you are still in the office, you can use the coordinate geometry functions to perform distance, angle, area or down-and-out computations. You can also create your construction points from AutoCAD DXF or DWG files, upload them to the Trimble LM80 Layout Manager, or send them directly to a total station for onboard layout. No need to learn a complete engineering CAD program!

  • Graphical user interface provides direct access to common functions for a shorter learning curve and minimal self-training.
  • Standard view controls offer a common user interface designed for anyone with a limited understanding of CAD for fast, easy operation.
  • Multiple point selection in Individual, Window, and Current view point selection techniques give you maximum control to select points.
  • Enter Plan and COGO (coordinate geometry) functionality in the office.
  • Supports importing AutoCAD DWG and DXF files for creating layout points.
  • Import and export text files that contain a list of points and coordinates.

Trimble Point Creator Pro Software: Simple, native CAD point creation software

As the construction industry continues to push the utilization of BIM practices for cost savings, overall efficiency, and project data collaboration, Trimble Point Creator Pro fills the need of being able to create 2D and 3D points directly within a robust CAD environment—and then easily share with field layout software/controllers.

In summary, TPC Pro offers a platform where any AutoCAD user can utilize Trimble tools to become more productive by sharing data and removing steps in the process.

Uniquely designed for contractors, engineers, & architects of all sizes

Regardless of your discipline or role as a CAD user within a building construction project, Trimble Point Creator Pro offers a robust and familiar environment with the following unique features:

  • 3D Point creation within a CAD environment.
  • Compatible with AutoCAD, Bricscad, and ZWcad CAD platforms.
  • Transfer points to and from a Trimble LM80, Trimble MEP, Trimble TS series Total Stations as well as other popular total stations.
  • Easily import files with coordinate data (.cnx, .dxf, .csv, and many more). Trimble LM80 imports the points into a unique layer that provides the user with powerful point and data management capabilities.
  • Generate stakeout, deviation, inverse, and coordinate list reports.
  • Deviations can be analyzed as a report in relation to their design position.
