Powerful PDFs with Bluebeam Revu
PDFs are a staple in our
digital environment today. We primarily use them to distribute and share
our designs with others without having to send the native files (DWGs, RVTs,
etc.). Well, what if you could do more with these PDFs - much more!
That is where Bluebeam Revu comes in. At a very attractive price,
Bluebeam Revu opens up your PDF capabilities greatly. Bluebeam has
plugins for AutoCAD, Revit, Navisworks, SolidWorks, SketchUp, and Office for
direct PDF creation and batch
options, or use the Bluebeam PDF printer to convert other CAD and Windows files
to 10 different file formats. Bluebeam automatically reads your drawing's
orientation, scale, line weights, merged lines, plot style table and page size,
so there is no need to adjust your settings. Redline 2D and 3D PDFs with
industry-standard markups including text, clouds, highlights, CAD symbols,
stamps, images and more. Save custom markups in the patented Tool Chest for
easy reuse, and use Revu's editing capabilities
to assemble PDFs of RFIs, submittals, bid sets and more. Perform takeoffs, automatically compare drawings revisions,track markups in a list, integrate with SharePoint or
ProjectWise, go mobile on a tablet PC or iPad and collaborate with project
partners around the world in real time using Bluebeams's cloud-based
solution, Bluebeam Studio.
