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.
Build a flexible folder-like layout and add the drawings according to project structure.
Add as many as required measurement sheets under each drawing. More than one sheet can be open making it straighforward to copy/paste measurements from one sheet to another.
Measurements are grouped into sheets (architectural, electrical, mechanical etc.). The measurements of the sheet in front are highlighted for easy direct access.
The four basic 2d measurement types (count, length, area, volume) are available and for each type there are several methods for efficiently and accurately carrying it out.
Associate each measurement with one or more BOQ items either directly or by using specific formulae.
Use legends, labels and measurement analysis templates for easier figure identification and checking of results.
Work in the same project with other users. Sheets make it possible for more than one users to work on the same drawing. An open editable sheet is locked for other users till closed.
BOQ items, parameters etc are also locked during editing.
Measurement sheets can be exported in a wide range of formats (dwg, dxf, dgn, bmp, jpg, pdf etc).
Export Measurements and BOQ items in xls format. Filter and sort in specialized forms the data to be exported.
Create custom measurement types with specific parameters and formulae. They are used for more complicated cases such as air duct perimeter area, duct weight e.t.c.
Define parameters that can be used in formulae that relate measurements to BOQ items
