ExtrAXION ExtrAXION is an easy to use quantity surveying and cost estimating software tool that includes all the functionality needed but none of the complexity , a perfect solution for the engineering industry professional.

ExtrAXION offers the ability to rapidly measure linear elements, areas, volumes and item counts, with great accuracy. It supports a large number of CAD (.dwg, .dxf etc.) and image files such as scanned drawings and digital photographs (.bmp, .gif, .jpg etc.) as well as multi-page PDF files. Measurements can be associated with Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) work items at any time, resulting in an automatic and comprehensive integration of the quantity takeoff and cost estimating procedures. WBS data can be imported from or exported to MS Excel and quantity takeoff and cost estimation results can also be extracted to MS Excel. ExtrAXION can be used by general contractors, architects, quantity surveyors, cost estimators and any professional in the construction trade involved in quantity takeoff and cost estimating.
