ExtrAXION is the digital takeoff software which speeds up the quantity surveying and estimating procedure through several alternative methods of measurement.
ExtrAXION facilitates fast and accurate measurements of items, lengths, areas and volumes from both image (BMP, GIF, JPG, TIF etc.) and vector (DWG, DXF, DGN, DWF, EMF etc.) plans, as well as from PDF multi-page files.
The cost estimation process is completed by automatic transfer of the measurements at the project Work Breakdown Structure (WBS). The results of the measurements can also be exported to excel files for further calculation.
ExtrAXION is ideal for architects, quantity surveyors and contractors to speed up the estimating process for new buildings or renovations and allow for a higher number of successful bids.
More than one estimator can open the same project and measure even on the same drawing in different measurement sheets. To have multiuser functionality you need to store all projects data in a shared SQL Server database.
Start the takeoff process from any image or vector file type, as soon as possible, using a simple, yet powerful tool.
Minimize the time needed for measurements, using tools that significantly accelerate the procedure, such as selective copying of measurements from one drawing to another, measurement reproduction, library with parameters and user-defined measurement types.
Instantly preview and print full measurement analysis on ready-to-use template sheets, where the analytical surface area calculations, the dimensions, the related work items etc. are presented in every detail.
Achieve great accuracy, using integrated tools like zoom, magnifier, object snaps etc.
Eliminate possible errors due to measuring the same element more than once or forgetting to take an element into account.
Associate any measurement result with one or more work items of the project’s WBS. This way any change in measurements automatically updates the quantity estimation. Any measurement may be directly accessed from the WBS tree.
Replace all surveying and estimating data of the project, such as drawing files, measurements, photocopies of plans etc., by one "electronic" file which is easy to use and readily accessible.
Create estimating scenarios by just changing a parameter value, such as a floor height and watch instant results.
Save time and improve productivity by using custom measurements when the four basic types do not suffice. Create your own custom measurements and define parameters which take their values during the takeoff process.
Cut costs by saving paper, ink and printing.
