Information that is stored in Bluebeam REVU's markup list can be grouped and filtered to display the information that you want to see. Jim demonstrates how to arrange the information to create a report that contains the quantities you need to create a cost estimate. This report can be printed or saved as a PDF file and the information can also be exported to a spreadsheet.
- [Voiceover] Once I have my Quantity Takeoffs completed,…I need to get that information out of here…so I can use it to create some cost estimates…and send that to my customer as well.…So, let's look at what we have so far.…We'll expand the bottom screen panel,…and again, let's collapse these,…keep our view manageable.…And you can see the two Quantity Takeoffs that we did…in the last video segment are here,…Topping Slab and Group.…I'm gonna go ahead and take the opportunity now…to highlight that.…
Come over to the right screen panel,…and let's rename that something other than Group…so it means a little more to us when we…export this information.…And if you remember from the last video segment,…that Group is actually…the Concrete Double Tees.…So that probably is a little more meaningful than Group,…so, again,…now in my Quantity Takeoffs layer I have…Concrete Double Tees 18,…I have the Topping Slab with an area of 13,522 square feet.…
I don't have anything in this drawing,…in these Quantity Takeoffs,…that is length information that I need,…
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.
