Autodesk Point Layout

Point placement and construction layout software

Point Layout construction layout software helps contractors and subcontractors bring model accuracy to the field. Use model coordinate information at the job site to improve office-to-field efficiency and QA/QC, reduce rework, and increase layout productivity.



Point Layout features


Create points Create points within drawings and models authored in AutoCAD, Revit, or Navisworks software.

  • Create points on almost any object.
  • Add points automatically to family or ITM content.
  • Place points manually.
This flexibility enables comprehensive point layout, which helps make field activities more accurate.

Export to robotic instruments
Export points from AutoCAD, Revit, or Navisworks software to a total station or other robotic instrument for more accurate construction layout.

Import field conditions
Import staked point locations back into AutoCAD, Revit, or Navisworks software to help create an as-built model for handoff.

Export to Navisworks
Export your work from AutoCAD or Revit software and import it into Navisworks software to adjust your point locations during the coordination process.

Control points
Add, import, and export control points to your model. Control points can include automatic grid intersection placement, import, and manual placement in AutoCAD and Revit software.

Coordinate systems
Add coordinate systems to your model that match the job site. This helps you align your points with the overall construction project.

3D-model based layout
Integrate with the BIM 360 Layout iPad app and control your layout from the full model.

Compare points
Use imported field points with field deviation reports for QA/QC, then pass issues to BIM 360 Field software for resolution.

Slab analysis
Import field or as-built points of any surface into Revit software for deviation analysis of field versus the design model.
