Autodesk Takeoff

Generate 2D takeoffs & 3D quantities from a single solution.

Autodesk Takeoff allows organisations to create quality estimates & competitive bids faster by empowering estimating teams to perform more accurate 2D take-offs & generate automatic quantities from 3D models within a single take-off solution.

With an integrated 2D and 3D quantification tool that leverages Autodesk Construction Cloud’s unified platform, organisations can ensure quantities are not only updated in real-time but also use the most current design files from a centralised document management environment.

Teams can collaborate easily & maximise their visibility into project scope to reduce costs and increase the ability to win more work.

Key Features of Autodesk Takeoff

  • Cloud-based Document Management - Estimating teams get simplified access to relevant construction documents, drawings, & 3D models for improved collaboration. Using the same document management platform as Autodesk Build and Autodesk Collaborate. Single Source of Truth.
  • Document Version Control - Clear notification when document set is updated ensuring that estimating teams are always working off the latest document set.
  • Cloud based multi-user access - Multiple estimators can simultaneously access the same project files to review & perform 2D & 3D take-off.
  • Design Review - Cloud-based access to construction drawings, documents, & models in a centralised location to empower estimators to perform a more structured design & project review, to understand complexities, to generate a highly competitive bid & identify issues early in the project.
  • Simplified 2D take-off - Easily capture project scope with linear, count & area take-off. Draw take-off once & generate multiple quantities for increased time savings.
  • Automated 3D take-off - Get instant access to quantities from the BIM model for tremendous time savings & project scope visualisation.
  • Aggregate 2D+3D take-off – Take-off types can be used across 2D and 3D take-off, allowing teams to access aggregated quantities from 2D drawings & models in highly organised & customisable view.
  • Multiple Classifications - Select from predefined classification systems or upload custom classifications to use across your projects. Supports multiple classification for material breakdown.
  • Multiple Quantities Output - Choose imperial or metric measurement system based on your project’s needs. Take-off once & generate multiple quantities.
  • Formula Based Quantities - Use customised formulas to generate complex quantities in both 2D & 3D - Take-off with confidence with Autodesk’s formula checker.
  • Connection to Estimating Solutions - Aggregated 2D+3D quantities can be rolled up by classification, type, & material to allow for easy connection to estimating solutions.

Autodesk Takeoff enables contractors to perform 2D and 3D presentations to facilitate better collaboration between team members. It ensures teams are working with accurate and updated drawings. It also helps contractors align construction teams with cloud-based data accessible to all.
