PriMus TAKEOFF is the quantity takeoff software that allows you to obtain fast and accurate cost estimates by extracting measurement data directly from your project files.

With PriMus TAKEOFF extract measurement data directly from files saved in the following formats:

  • AutoCAD® DWG or DXF
  • Adobe® PDF
  • Scanned BMP, JPG image files

The ideal solution to save time and minimize the risk of error, without needing your own CAD software.

What is Quantity Take Off? Why use PriMus TAKEOFF software?

A “Quantity Take-Off” is a fundamental document for any construction industry stakeholder or project manager. It's formed of a series of manual or automated measurement operations, derived from a construction project drawing, that allow the quantity surveyor to prepare a detailed list of materials and quantities and therefore compose an accurate cost estimate of the project.

It’s an international term that usually indicates a software that is also capable of acquiring measurements from a drawing saved in one of the many electronic formats (DWG, DXF) or a raster image (previously vectorised).
PriMus TAKEOFF allows the quantity surveyor to save the drawing information and the relating cost estimate data in the DWG file by creating unity between the two document types that other software procedures do not support.

This particular technology keeps all changes made to the drawing perfectly aligned to the construction estimate data. The CAD application must of course operate directly on the DWG drawing.

Create quantity takeoff document from DWG,DXF,CAD or Raster image | PriMus TAKEOFF | ACCA software

Quickly create a quantity takeoff document directly from a DWG, DXF CAD drawing or Raster image

PriMus TAKEOFF is equipped with basic CAD drawing functions and useful digital takeoff and the well-known construction estimating functionalities provided in PriMus.

With PriMus TAKEOFF, quickly open a DWG or a Raster image and acquire precise metric data from the drawing’s graphical entities to speed up the estimating process: the quantity survey data is produced automatically and continuosly updated should the CAD drawing be updated in time.

Easily associate a drawing entity to a Price List item creating a dynamic union between the drawing and the BoQ.

Draw CAD drawings using PriMus TAKEOFF CAD or your CAD application | PriMus TAKEOFF | ACCA software

Draw and edit your CAD drawings using the PriMus TAKEOFF internal CAD or your own personal CAD application

With the PriMus TAKEOFF internal CAD, you can draw or edit the graphical entities of a DWG CAD drawing. By means of the classic 2D CAD commands, the Takeoff and estimating software also allows you to change common graphical entities present in a DWG (eg, lines, polylines, arcs, circles, blocks, hatches, etc).

If necessary the same entity can be drawn from scratch to “vectorise” a Raster image.

The PriMus TAKEOFF file is a native DWG file (fully manageable by other CAD applications).

The program opens and saves files in the “AutoCAD” format (from Release 2.5 to Release 2010) and in the “AutoCAD DWG” format (from release 11/12 to release 2010) and also allows you to open DWG files created and saved with AutoCAD 2012. with these very same entities you can “vectorise” Raster images (in PDF, BMP, JPG…).

Draw your BoQ with fewer mistakes and greater control | PriMus TAKEOFF | ACCA software

Draw and prepare your BoQ with fewer mistakes and greater control

The drawing and the bill of quantities become two different views of the same objects.

When your drawing changes your Bill of Quantities is updated automatically. You can edit your drawings using the PriMus TAKEOFF internal CAD or your own personal CAD application.

PriMus TAKEOFF correctly reads the entities in the drawing and allows you to edit them together with the relating BoQ data at the same time; even when opening your modified DWG you’ll find all changes in place and of course, even when using your own CAD application.

If your BoQ data derives from a Raster image, PriMus TAKEOFF offers elementary DWG entities such as basic lines, polylines and blocks to vectorise the drawing and therefore retrive the relevant measurements (lengths, widths, areas, etc.) for quantity take-off input.
