eMeasure is an on-premise construction takeoff application built for small commercial and residential builders—especially those who prefer to use spreadsheets for estimating, but want rapid takeoff.
Drawings can be scanned in or uploaded via PDF, CAD and other file formats, then scaled and rotated within the application for optimal viewing. Users can control each drawing layer to view only what is necessary by turning layers on and off from a list.
Measurements to takeoff areas, lengths and counts can be made from 2D drawings using eMeasure’s “Smart Snap Tools,” then checked for accuracy by panning and zooming in the 3D view.
Other key functionality includes calibration, the ability to define units of measure, a conversion calculator, dimension export to spreadsheets and more. This software also supports negative dimensions and drawing overlay to view differences in plans and color settings to categorize measured areas.
