Trimble Field Points: v9.0 Release Notes

The latest release notes for v9.0 of Trimble Field Points (TFP) is included as a PDF at the end of this article.

Here’s a list of the major updates included in this release:

  • Version 9.0 is Compatible with Autodesk® AutoCAD® 2022 and Autodesk® Revit® 2022
  • Version 22.9.0.13 and Version 22.9.0.9 will give you the TFP compatible applications for the 2022 versions of AutoCAD and Revit

Improvements:

  • AutoCAD and Revit-Search Field Points
  • AutoCAD and Revit-Export Markers
    • You can now skip placing points over markers and directly export your existing markers into a .CSV file. Please note that this negates the ‘Round-tripping’ feature.
  • AutoCAD and Revit-Trimble Identity v4 Migration for Trimble Connect.
    • When clicking the Connect button you will now be taken to the internet for credentials. This was implemented for cyber security compliance.
  • Revit-New option in “Apply To” to add instance in Place points over a Family, Markers, or Fabrication Part
  • Revit-Place points on Fabrication Parts
