The staircase industry is getting more complex every day. Good staircase construction software is a must for any staircase builder who wants to manufacture modern and complex stairs. It becomes more and more crucial to work accurately, since a few fractions of an inch can sometimes already make a big difference.
The easiest way to transfer exact measurements to software is by using laser measurement systems, since the manual input of data is tedious and prone to making mistakes. However, such devices can be costly. This problem seems to have been solved thanks do the new and affordable Bosch Measurement Tool GLM 100 C. Compass Software Inc. has now integrated the measurement tool into their staircase construction software. The measurement tool can be connected to any Windows computer via Bluetooth. Once the device has been connected, it is initialized in the software. Any distance can be measured and automatically transferred to the staircase construction software. For example, stair builders are able to import in-situ concrete cores directly from the construction site. They only have to highlight the 1. tread and the Compass Software program then follows as the concrete tread is measured. Afterwards the program automatically jumps to the next tread. This makes the effort of measuring structural conditions minimal for stair builders. The process is simple, fast, and fail-safe. Even small woodshops will be able to work precisely by using the laser measurement technology from Bosch and Compass Software.
