Exchange Data with Trimble Novapoint

Novapoint supports the exchange of the elevation values: Road and land heights as well as quantities for later activity planning. Volumes are exported for the different earth types such as cut and fill as well as for the different layers: Filter course, base course ...

The data are exported in a free definable station number. When you do export we recommend to use 50 or 100 meters. This is enough precision for scheduling and does not overload the system with too many slices. For each slice a part activity will be created in Tilos.

A Tilos template is already prepared into which the data can be imported. In this template there are already prepared views containing diagrams as well as activity templates for planning Activities referring to the imported quantities.

Use the imported quantities for activity planning the section-based quantities turn the linear activities into curves depending on the quantity between 2 station points.

All the templates listed under _Tekla templates are calculated based on a profile. This means that the quantity is taken from the data in the imported profile. The straight Activity line is cut into small pieces of 10 m, for which the duration is calculated based on the quantity and the work rate assigned to the template. This can be changed for each Activity individually.

The curved line can be turned into a straight line by checking the option: "Apply only total quantity". If this is unchecked, then for each slice a part activity is created and this may slow down the system if there are too many slices within a long activity.
