New York, NY and Philadelphia, PA -- November 8, 2012 -- Microsol Resources Corporation, a recognized leader in building information modeling (BIM) technology solutions, as well as a leading Autodesk Gold Partner serving the architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) industries, is pleased to announce the addition of PointKnown to its growing association of Technology Partners.
PointKnown flagship product, PKNail Pro, is a proven and unique Field to BIM application that runs in the Autodesk Revit environment, allowing a user to quickly and accurately capture and model existing conditions of buildings. It utilizes point-to-point laser technology (PPLT) for real-time field measurements data capture and creation of floor plans and BIM models in the field.
Typically, building surveying and documentation is done with pencil, paper and measuring tape. It is repetitive, time consuming, and prone to error. PKNail offers the modern-day answer to transcribing measurements onto drawings and then into CAD. Bluetooth-enabled laser technology means that surveys can be conducted quickly and delivered consistently to a remote Revit or CAD enabled workstation, in a workflow that is controlled and repeatable. The result is five to ten times faster documentation of buildings in the field.
Designed and tested by field professionals for field professionals, PKNail complements the Autodesk suite of products and is therefore a natural addition to the software offerings of Microsol Resources.
“We are thrilled to be able to partner with PointKnown and provide a unique and superb product to the architectural community”, said Emilio Krausz, President of Microsol Resources. Customers have been voicing the need for better tools for field measurement of existing conditions for quite a while, and PK Nail for Revit hits the nail in the head! It is exactly what we need, and there is nothing else like it”.
Accurately capturing existing buildings allows professionals to leverage information in many ways, many times over, from square footage reporting during due diligence or lease negotiations, through adaptive reuse projects, to energy modeling and sustainable retrofits.
This latest partnership reinforces the dedication of Microsol Resources to matching business needs with products and support, one of many reasons that the company has received numerous recent accolades such as Autodesk designations for MEP Systems Engineering and Simulation, and exceptional rankings in customer satisfaction. In business since 1986, the company is also celebrating its 25th year as an Autodesk reseller.
