The Autodesk® BIM 360™ Layout app for iOS and BIM 360™ web service provide vertical construction contractors the ability to connect the coordinated model to the field layout process, helping to increase job site productivity while improving the accuracy of staked or installed building components.
The app synchronizes with your BIM 360 account to download and upload project models with point location coordinate detail. Once paired with a total station, BIM 360 Layout on your iPad™ guides the user to the exact location of those points on the job site for field staking and/or location verification activities.
NOTE: The BIM 360 Layout app is currently directly compatible with the following positioning hardware: Topcon LN-100 3D Layout Navigator, Topcon DS-200i, Leica iCON robot 60, and Leica iCON robot 50.
NOTE: The BIM 360 Layout app is currently compatible with the following positioning hardware when used in conjunction with a compatible BT Bridging device: Topcon LN-100W 3D Layout Navigator, Topcon DS-200i/DS-200, Topcon GT and PS series, Sokkia SX and IX series, and Leica iCON robots 50, 60, 70, and 80.

Ratings and Reviews
Still not perfect
It works , until it doesn’t . Still suffering from intermittent freezing issues and crashes abruptly. Seems to have some of the same bugs it’s had for years and years . Could be worse , could be better .
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
