I'm surprised it wasn't asked before (please feel free to correct me)
A tool, could be integrated to the beacon, that draws a line between two points, a line visible from a distance with an optional distance between said points.
i.e. I'm on top of a stack of 150 stackable conveyors, I'm looking down to my oil supply base, down there, and about 1,5km away. I'd really like to link where I am to the oil supply with conveyors.
If I could setup such a tool here, on top of my stack and point to a precise point at my supply then, from the ground level, build gradual stacks that would end up to the visible laser line... To have a straight serie of gradual increasing stacks until I reach 150 or, at least a compatible last direct conveyor link distance.
The tool could also include different color (green or user defined) points or zones (customizable lenght zone i.e. point, 0,5m, 1m, 3m...), along the laser beam (red or user defined), to mark conveyor, if the case, belt max distance at this angle in order to avoid endless rebuilds. This would give engineers a good indication of where to build a foundation or whatever else to support the conveyor belts. The points or zones should also be repeated as many times as required to devide the whole distance and mark all the required conveyor supports needed.
