Leave the site, excavation or building with a finished CAD plan

TachyCAD is an AutoCAD based solution for as-built documentation. Measurements from common survey instruments such as total stations are converted immediately to CAD geometry. Depending on design requirements, floor plans, sections, elevations or 3D objects are created locally as an AutoCAD drawing.

In addition, TachyCAD allows for the linking of intelligent data to geometric objects within the CAD plan. The data structures are freely definable and can be exported into common database formats.

TachyCAD is offered within the following industry solutions:

TachyCAD Archaeology

TachyCAD Archaeology is suited for site excavations as well as for complex three-dimensional excavation situations (e.g. city core excavations with wall fragments). Next to the graphical documentation in 2D and/or 3D it is also possible to attach object data for the features captured onsite.

TachyCAD Building Survey

TachyCAD Building Survey can be used anywhere where building plans are drawn or CAD-detected objects need to be combined with facility data. Creating 2D or 3D drawings is easily possible.

TachyCAD Topography

TachyCAD Topography is suitable for digital ground survey or property documentation outdoors. The results are topographic position plans in optional scales and various formats. In addition to graphical documentation in 2D and/or 3D, supplementary object data may be recorded intelligently, e.g. for GIS systems.

TachyCAD Plant Survey

TachyCAD Plant Survey is used for the measurement of pipelines and industrial facilities where three-dimensional drawings, layouts and key tie-in points need to be displayed spatially. The generation of conventional 2D drawings is also possible without problems.
