Jim explains how to create a customized title block that can be saved as a template in Bluebeam Revu. Templates can be quickly accessed to begin creating professional quality drawings, details and layouts. Bluebeam templates can be saved and exported so they can be distributed throughout your organization. Templates can be created from scratch and customized with text and logos.
- [Voiceover] To get started,…it's always nice to create our drawings and details…on a sheet that looks like this,…something that looks like it's a construction drawing.…In other words, I want it to have a professional layout,…I'd like a title block, maybe my logo,…some place to put a description of what the drawing's for.…Again, if we're trying to create…something that looks more professional…than those hand-drawn details that we're used to seeing,…we'd like to start out with a nice,…professional title block.…The other thing is…I don't wanna have to redraw this title block…every time I do a new detail or layout.…
So let's take the time now to create a drawing template…that I can use over and over again.…Now, there are several ways to create new drawing templates,…and I'll show you a couple.…But in this segment,…we'll just start by creating one from scratch.…Now, this ability to actually create a PDF from scratch…right inside Revu…really is one of the features that sets this PDF program…apart from the others.…So to start this process,…
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.
