PointKnown flagship product, PKNail is a commercial grade application designed, built, and tested by professionals for field professionals to allow a user to quickly and accurately capture existing building information directly into Revit in real time. It utilizes point-to-point laser technology for realtime field measurements data, capture, and creation of floor plans and BIM models in the field.
PKNail allows a user to capture, wall, windows, doors, levels, plumbing objects, fire protection, if it is found on a wall you can model and place it within the model quickly, easily, 3D coordinated and ready to be scheduled.
We found out very quickly that few technologies exist between paper and pencil and $100,000 machines. We needed, as building surveyors ourselves, a quick and efficient way to capture building geometry and objects. And by capturing and modeling in the field it provided us, as it can you tremendous benefits.
PKNail Pro provides you with the quickest path field to finish then every method out there. You literally walk off away from a building / job site with most of your documentation / drafting already finished.
Increase Accuracy → Minimize Site Visits → Decrease Change Orders (All Good Things)
Through learning PKNail Pro and proper data capture techniques you will have the confidence in knowing that your work is accurate and documented well enough to make your project a success.
Typically, building surveying and documentation is done with pencil, paper and measuring tape. It is repetitive, time consuming, and prone to error. PKNail offers the modern-day answer to transcribing measurements onto drawings and then into CAD. Bluetooth-enabled laser technology means that surveys can be conducted quickly and delivered consistently to a remote Revit or CAD enabled workstation, in a workflow that is controlled and repeatable. The result is five to ten times faster documentation of buildings in the field.
By pressing a button on the range finder, almost any object, walls, windows, doors, plumbing objects, fire protection, electrical objects, and measurements are transferred directly to the workstation, stored in the database, and built directly. As your measured walls are 'built', windows are added, duplexes, fire pulls, toilets, whatever you need documented.
Who can PKNail help; Architects, Developers, Engineers, Surveyors, Interior Designers, Facility Managers, Realtors, and You. In comparing PKNail Pro over traditional methods, it has documented buildings more than 5-10x faster then traditional methods, and at a fraction of the cost versus HDLS (High Definition Laser Scanning). Survey and Document on an industry standard platform.
