New Ultra Scale Master® Pro Gives Contractors an Affordable, Portable Area Takeoff Tool and Digitizer System
CARSON CITY, Nev. --- Calculated Industries, an internationally recognized manufacturer and distributor of specialty calculators, has announced the release of its newest product, the Ultra Scale Master Pro. Designed for contractors, estimators and professionals in the building trades, the Ultra Scale Master Pro is a complete stand-alone digital area takeoff tool that lets users measure data from blueprints, architectural plans and other kinds of scaled drawings to compute linear, area and volume values for lines, curves and shapes.
Mark Paulsen, vice president of marketing for Calculated Industries, says the Ultra Scale Master Pro is the result of CI's years of working with, and listening to, people in the construction industry.
"For years, we have been providing specialty calculators for everyone from do-it-yourselfers to owner/builders, estimators and project superintendents. The Ultra Scale Master Pro is specifically designed for residential and light commercial builders and contractors who need area and volume takeoffs from blueprints so they can accurately estimate materials and costs and measure store, and calculate perimeters, areas and volumes."
As a stand-alone digital area take-off tool the Ultra Scale Master Pro requires no add-on computing devices or software, making it easy-to-use and portable. Users can measure plans in the office or on the job site without the need for additional computing devices or software.
When connected to a PC, measurements can be transferred to spreadsheet and estimating programs. The device can also send digitized x, y coordinates to a wide range of takeoff software programs, including CI's SMART TAKEOFF! ™ graphic digitizing software.
The Ultra Scale Master Pro includes 72 built-in architectural and engineering scales, plus four custom scales for measuring out-of-scale drawings. The device works with plan sizes up to 36" x 24." It sells for $499.95 and is available at contractor supply, survey, engineering and supply and reprographic stores.
