Carlson Takeoff is an innovative 3D takeoff system developed for design/build firms, earthwork/excavating, engineers, heavy/highway contractors, paving and utility contractors. It enables users to accurately estimate cuts and fills using various sources including CAD, paper plans, PDF, TIFF and more. The software is quite flexible, allowing users to quickly and easily convert plans from 2D to 3D, modify linework and correct "bad CAD." One of our favorite features of Carlson Software is the ability to develop machine control models in Topcon, Trimble, Leica or Carlson format. The software comes standard with AutoCAD OEM or IntelliCAD and can run on various Windows platforms. Users get site, roads, trenching and blasting, all in one product specifically designed for contractors.
