Measured points in Layout Manager

Measured points in Layout Manager

Measured points are points that are measured on the construction site using a layout device and imported to Tekla Structures. You can view the properties of measured points in Layout Manager or in the Layout Point tool dialog box. In addition to the general point properties, such as name, diameter, and shape, measured points have measured point properties that cannot be modified in Tekla Structures.

To view the properties, select the point in Layout Manager or double-click the point in the model.

The measured point properties are as follows:

Property

Description

Is Stakeout Point

You can label a measured point as staked in the Trimble® LM80 device if it deviates from the corresponding layout point created in the model.

The property is shown in the Layout Point tool dialog box.

Is Field Point

A field point has been measured on the construction site and imported to Tekla Structures.

Is Field Line is the corresponding property for layout lines.

The property is shown in the Layout Point tool dialog box.

HR

Height of rod is the height of the prism on the pole. It is used to determine instrument height, and therefore the actual elevation of the measured point.

HA

Horizontal angle is the angle that was measured from the back sight or 0 angle.

VA

Vertical angle is the difference in angle measurement from the horizontal position of the instrument scope.

SD

Slope distance is the actual distance regardless of elevation change. Horizontal angle is the distance along a horizontal plane.

PPM

Parts per million is a factor used to determine measurements that take into account the air conditions and how they affect the ability of light to travel through the air. This property is important in the measurement calculation and accuracy.

Benchmark offset

Benchmark offset is a measurement that is taken to define a benchmark that elevation measurements are calculated from.
