To repeat SX10 or SX12 scans

If you are using a Trimble SX10 or SX12 scanning total station to scan the same area multiple times, you can quickly and easily repeat scans by loading a previous scan in the same job or a linked job. For example, you can scan a floor once to find the high or low areas that need leveling, and after performing remedial work you can repeat the scan to confirm the floor is within the required tolerances.

To load a scan:

  • The instrument must be set up on the same point as the scan you want to repeat.
  • Make sure the At distance value is accurate so that the software can correctly recalculate the vertical angles and account for differences in instrument height between the scans.
