The Most Affordable and Easy-to-Use Solution for Digital Layout

DALLAS, TXFebruary 27, 2024 – GeoShack, Inc. has launched the NEW Topcon LN-50 3D laser, the latest addition to the Topcon LN layout navigator family of instruments. It is the most affordable and easy-to-use solution for digital layout.

The LN-50 has a 50-meter range and is designed specific to homebuilders, mechanical, electrical, plumbing (MEP) trades, concrete contractors, and others — regardless of their digital technology experience — to achieve high-speed precision in their measuring and layout work, mitigating the risk of errors that can lead to costly rework.

“The family of LN products features a one-button, self-leveling setup that a wide variety of trade professionals can be comfortable using, particularly those transitioning from traditional layout and measuring methods to digital workflows,” said David Owen, President of GeoShack, Inc.  “If a homebuilder set out to layout a project with a tape measure and a transit, it would take two people to do the work that could be accomplished by one person using the LN-50 3D laser, so productivity is a key benefit. Another is accuracy. The user will be able to lay out the job more accurately than using fully manual processes.”

The LN-50 works exclusively with Topcon’s Digital Layout building construction software. The software is compatible with CAD and BIM software setups and can be used with the Point Manager plug-in for Autodesk Revit or AutoCAD.

“The easy-to-use Digital Layout software controls the 3D laser and makes it ‘smart’ so that the user can lay out building corners or plumbing sleeves, for instance, and do it efficiently,” Owen added.  “The portfolio embodies our commitment to democratizing technology — simplifying and improving the process of transitioning to digital layout in the building construction sector in a cost-effective package,”

The LN-50 has a short learning curve, and is a one-person operation, which is particularly helpful during labor shortages. By providing enhanced productivity, accuracy and quality in an easily accessible system, it reinforces the push toward providing intuitive innovations for both the existing and incoming generations of trade professionals.”

“With this system, companies can take on larger projects or even just speed up layout for the projects that they have on the books.”
