Jim explains that the features that have been taught in this course can be applied to enable you to efficiently create electronic construction drawings, engineering details and even architectural layouts that are professional looking and drawn to scale. These drawings are saved as PDF files that are easy to share with others and can be used for quantity estimates.

- [Voiceover] Like I stated in the introduction…to this course, Bluebeam Review is certainly not going…to replace a full CAD program when it comes…to detailing an entire project.…But as this course demonstrated, it does contain…some great features that allow you to…quickly draft up a proposed detailer layout…instead of drawing it by hand.…In this short course, we were able to quickly progress…from creating a title block…to adding some customer supplied information,…and then on to generating our parking layout…and we were even able to use our drawing…to generate quantity takeoffs for cost estimates.…
The learning curve involved with all this…was much shorter than it would've been…trying to learn a full-featured CAD program,…and again, as a bonus, if you're already…using Bluebeam Review to review and mark up…your other construction documents,…then all you really need to do…is start applying the skills and knowledge…you already have of this software…to solve this drawing challenge.…Being able to quickly open Bluebeam Review,…
Using features contained in Bluebeam Revu, including templates, Sketch Tools, scale calibration, and length and area measurements, we can generate more accurate and professional drawings. In this course, Jim Rogers shows how to generate electronic layouts that can be distributed as PDFs, printed, or sent to a Bluebeam Studio Project folder. The techniques rely on the Sketch Tools markup feature, which allows us to "sketch to scale" and record length and area values as we draw. Jim also shows how to save and share our drawings with clients and colleagues, and extract quantities to generate cost estimates.
