Siteworks 1.50 Release
New Features and Functions
Create Offset Line Command
- Siteworks now has a new COGO command to offset lines. This functionality works with with both measured and design lines. They also works with temporary lines defined between existing or free-tap points.
- It's possible to define the new offset line as a feature line, breakline, volume or outer boundary. A vertical offset is also configurable based on slope, degrees of angle, or the vertical distance between the existing and the offset line.
- The “Create Offset Line” can be used by clicking the icon highlighted in orange featured below.
Improvements to Total Station Connectivity
- Changes have been implemented to improve the quality and robustness of the connection with EM120 module and total stations. This has particularly improved the connection between the TSC5 and an instrument that is in 'Machine Control' mode.
- Connections between Siteworks and SPS total stations will now be easier to make with fewer "Failed to Connect" messages.
Option to Suppress Target Lost Messages
- A new option has been added to disable the Target Lost pop-up message when a prism lock is lost. This option is available in the Total Station settings under the Settings tab.
- When the Target Lost Message is disabled, there will not be a pop-up message in Siteworks. You can now just tap on the prism in the video view to reacquire the prism, instead of having to first dismiss the pop up,.
PNT Field Data Export for Earthworks Systems
- A new function, the Measured Points option, has been added to the Export to Machine options for measured points. You can export all of the measured points, found in the Workorder, into the Field Data Folder. This will then fall into a Project Library for direct import into Trimble Earthworks.
- These points can then be used in Earthworks for infield designs or for whatever purpose is necessary (ex. using as reference points).
Update to 64 Bit Architecture on Windows Systems
- Siteworks has been updated to a 64 bit architecture on Windows systems. This allows for larger system memory allocations to be utilized.
- During the installation of v1.50, TIM will perform an uninstallation and removal of the existing Trimble Siteworks program folder,, C:\Program Files (x86)\Trimble Siteworks. It will then install the new 64 bit version application files into C:\Program Files\Trimble Siteworks.
- There is no impact to the data folder structure. Any measured data is fully backwards and forwards compatible with both 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Siteworks.
- If you are using a custom CoordinateStystemDatabase.xml, it will be deleted from the Program Files (x86) installation folder as part of the uninstallation of the 32 bit version. Therefore, the custom CoordinateSystemDatabase.xml in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Trimble Siteworks folder should be backed up prior to the installation of v1.50
