RIDGIDsketch

RIDGIDsketch is a tool for mobile devices that allows you to calculate and communicate measurements of your project. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with a RIDGID LM-400 Laser Distance Meter. The app will connect to your LM-400 via Bluetooth® and wirelessly receive the exact measurements from the device. RIDGIDsketch works in both drawing mode and photo overlay mode allowing you to develop precise room plans or annotate measurements within a photo.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by It is one product interesting I need to measur angles planes also, It device only measure angles up. February 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by The tool feature packed, software needs work The product itself is good and packed with features costing more on competitive products. The software, Rigid Sketch, could be the differentiator for this product with some minor improvements. First off, the measurements are rounded and displayed to the nearest inch despite the tools ability to measure within 1/16th. File management of drawings is non existent and editing drawings is awkward and often impossible. I have spoken to tech support and they are making an internal request to fix the display accuracy. Leica provides a tool that provides the display accuracy but fails to scale the drawing as dimensions are added. As a stand alone tool, 5 stars. If you plan to use Bluetooth to transfer dimensions to Rigid Sketch, unless an inch accuracy is close enough, you will find the tool useless. January 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Godd thing It's a good instrument, very easy to use. The Bluetoth data transfer works good, i like it. To send the measure dates to an Android phone is very easy. The Ridgid sketch program with the photo feature (sending measuring data on a photo) is excellent. December 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! Easy to use. Accurate and all around good product. Quality is durable and well made. Price is decent. Makes the job easier. November 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Product I bought this product months ago and it has been the most accurate that I have ever purchased in the last ten years. It's very durable as I have dropped it many times but it definitely is a product to consider. November 24, 2014

Why do you build a laser measurement tool with accuracy to the 1/16th of an inch and provide a companion software tool that rounds measurements to the inch? This makes this nicely designed piece of software effectively useless for any form of construction. Are there plans to modify the tool such that accuracy to the 1/16th of an inch will be displayed?

Answer: 
Due to screen space limitations, to minimize the potential for clutter, the dimensions are rounded up to the nearest inch in the drawing view. They will be displayed however when the sketch is shared.

Answer: 
Okay precision, and whether it is useful for use in the area of construction and maintenance in general.
But I think if measuring horizontal angles would be better, because now only measures vertical angles and only up to 65 °.
