Ideally, it should be able to do the straight forward length measuring both internal and external plus calculation of areas/volumes. heh, heh.......
I bought one of these from this retailer and was very pleased with the device and with the parking lot training they gave my crew.

Laser craft products -Contour XLR

If you're looking at precision surveying then check out Leica, Nikon, Zeiss, Ashtech & Trimble.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

heh,heh.....thanks BOT, this ContourXLR is good stuff! heh, heh......more suited for mapping and GIS Pro's. I am now considering the Leica Disto as these appear most user-friendly and versatile. The Hilti remains a close contender! Decisions! Decisions! heh, heh.......Trying out both this weekend!

heh, heh......you bet! heh, heh.......Autocad and Microstation are the most common industry standard here with the Architectural Desktop more suited and used in Architectural Design. Autocad appears to be more popular of the two and also being more 'user friendly'. My preference is the ADT but it has a hell of a learning curve to fully optimise the software! The good old Autodesk AEC as a separate add-on package was much easier to use and I still use it sometimes on a dedicated laptop with Autocad R12 and Windows 98! heh, heh......on the laser measuring front, I had been looking to upgrade from the traditional 'Stanley' tape for quite some time and reckon now is the right time in view of the high tech 'gizmos' around in the market! heh, heh......
