Bluebeam REVU comes with many built in markup tools that can be used to draw. This includes many predefined line styles, shapes, text tools, measuring tools and sketch to scale tools that are made for the engineering, architecture and construction industries. Jim demonstrates how to customize these tools to meet your unique drawing needs.
- [Voiceover] Bluebeam Revu comes with numerous line styles…and predefined tools that you can use to help you draw.…Now collectively, these are all known…in Bluebeam as Markups, and you can…access these basic Markups, up here at the top of the screen…by clicking on Markups in the menu bar.…When you do that, you'll see here at the top…that you have access to all of Revu's basic drawing tools:…lines, arrows, arcs, shapes, circles, clouds.…These are all the basic drawing tools…contained within Bluebeam Revu.…
Now there's also some additional custom built tools…that are included in the various profiles…that come built into Bluebeam Revu,…and they're stored in one of the tool chests.…So If I use my cursor and come over…to the left side of the screen and click on Tool Chest,…You'll see here in the construction profile…there's some predefined shapes and symbols…that are available to use for drawing or markups,…and just as an example, let's click on View…and change profiles to the punch profile.…
This just gives you an idea of the different types of…
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.
