GPS Machine Control Modeling
While the productivity of construction sites used to depend largely on a bunch of precisely placed surveyor’s stakes and the right heavy-duty equipment operators, the advent of 3D model machine control is quickly defining a new era of construction site efficiency. And our team at Take-Off Professionals is here to support all of your GPS machine control modeling needs.
If you’re new to the concept, machine control employs a variety of positioning sensors — such as rotating lasers, sonic tracers, total stations and advanced GPS systems — to give machine operators feedback on things like bucket and/or blade position as well as target grades. And with many of today’s leading heavy equipment manufacturers even pre-plumbing their equipment for machine control technology, this trend promises to be the new standard for efficient worksite operations.
Sensor technology has helped make contemporary cars safer and easier to drive. Similarly, machine control technology has made everything — from bulldozers and graders to excavators and pavers — more accurate when operated according to the predetermined positions of a 3D model.

Machine Control Modeling Capabilities
The benefits of machine control are what make this breakthrough in earthwork machinery so popular. When carried out correctly — in conjunction with high-quality machine control models — it typically provides the following advantages:
- Increases heavy-duty machine efficiency and productivity.
- Decreases operating expenses such as fuel, repair and maintenance costs.
- Reduces raw materials costs by using them more effectively.
- Lowers surveying costs by eliminating ongoing grade checking.
- Reduces labor costs by increasing individual worker efficiency.
Of course, for any machine control project to be successful, the 3D model it’s working off must be accurate and complete. That’s why more and more construction companies are turning to 3D machine control modeling services — like those we provide at TOPS — to bid on, accept and complete more projects with confidence and proficiency.
Our 3D/GPS Machine Control Modeling Services
At TOPS, we’re exclusively focused on preparing 3D models for construction site purposes. With a full-time team of talented engineers and technical staff — not subcontractors like so many of our competitors employ — we’re committed to transforming your data into reliable machine control models. We even have engineers working across all four major U.S. time zones to offer our clients timely national coverage. This is especially important when delivering on rush orders can make all the difference in getting your bid and/or proposal accepted.
After more than two decades of providing 3D models for the construction industry, our track record for accuracy, timeliness and attention to even the most minute details speaks for itself. But as far as statistics go, the one that truly stands out with regard to our machine control services is that we produce approximately 1,000 machine control models a year — with excellent turnaround times and support for every one of our clients.
Why Have TOPS Do The Data?
In addition to our talented staff, extensive experience and superior services, we also make working with TOPS a hassle-free experience. We’ve even created a platform exclusively for our clients to upload their files, notes and other related documents in a secure, easy-to-use program. This ensures that placing a work order with us is fast and simple, so you can keep working on your core business while we take care of your data and modeling needs.
