Trimble Australia announces the release of the latest version of the Trimble
Quantm software designed to increase user capabilities for road and rail
Version 8 of Trimble Quantm software, one of the most comprehensive
planning and costing solutions available in the market, will feature
enhancements that offer road and rail designers a more seamless transition from
planning to design with greater data integrity.
Rich data exchange with
Bentley’s OpenRoads for construction modelling
New enhancements in Version 8 of Trimble Quantm software include easy
data transfer between the Quantm Alignment Planning System and Bentley’s OpenRoads
software, helping to extend the design-to-construction workflow for alignments
to corridor planning in Quantm. Additionally, change management and tracking
functionalities preserve the design objective, and accelerate project delivery with
a more seamless transfer of information from planning through design and
Roz Buick, vice president for Trimble's Heavy Civil Construction
Division explains that Trimble’s collaboration with Bentley is delivering
real-world solutions to transform the design to construction workflow, with
Version 8 bringing new value to their alignment planning customers by supporting
enhanced rich data transfer with Bentley's OpenRoads software and i-Models.
Detailed geometric optimisation
Accurate geometric alignments produced by Quantm Version 8 can be used
in the design and construction phases of a project with the geometric
parameters and enhanced templates creating highly detailed alignments that
result in a more realistic model of the route. Geometric alignments also
deliver enhanced data fidelity and can result in more accurate costing during
the early phases of a project for better communication between the designers
and builders of new road and rail projects.
The improved geometric optimisation
functionality also allows planners to produce data-rich realistic graphics for
client and public consultations. Satellite image overlays and Trimble SketchUp
data warehouse models can be included to convey a real-world 3D representation
of the design.
