Trial Pit design made easy with CETi

The Trial Pit app extension for CETi is set to revolutionise the way technicians generate technical drawings. Though, not a CAD system itself, the custom-built application is able to use some of the more common CAD entities, such as paths and dimensions, to automate a technical drawing of scaled site diagrams, eliminating potential errors from hand-drawn sketches or roughly taken notes.

Unlike anything we have released to date for CETi, this new feature is a major enhancement that will save users valuable time and free up both on-site and back-office resources. By eliminating the need to hand-sketch plans while on-site, there is no need to convert the sketch to a CAD drawing back in the office.

A simple set of site measurements loaded to the system by a CETi user, enables the application to create detailed visualisations of the trial pits. In addition to generating the technical drawings, the app enables users to record a range of detailed job/site-specific information and text-labels including:

  • Sample/Test site
  • Object locations and measurements: pipes, cables, foundations etc.
  • Measurements and locations: sample to a wall; depth from foundation…
  • Custom text fields for labels

Designed with simplicity in mind, the user-friendly tool is easy to navigate and integrates seamlessly into the existing CETi interface. Benefits include:

  • More efficient process
  • Faster access to final technical drawings
  • Auto-archiving of site specifications and outputs
  • Improved quality and audit control

All data stored within CETi is accessible by users via the web*. This allows a range of stakeholders to collaborate effectively from anywhere, on any device; with the ability to remotely view, review and edit project designs and action points.
