Bluebeam maintains a discussion forum on their website where users share customized drawing and markup tools they have created. Bluebeam has also created custom tool chests for industries such as construction, engineering, architecture and oil and gas that can be downloaded. Jim also explains that additional Bluebeam courses are available in the on line library.

- [Voiceover] One of the things that we discussed…in this course is the creation of custom tool sets,…and you got to walk through the process that's involved…with creating some of these custom markup tools.…Bluebeam also maintains a discussion forum on their website…under their Community Forum, where users share…downloadable versions of custom toolsets that they've built…that you can install into your Bluebeam system as well.…There's also a set of downloadable extensions…for review that includes a number of…different toolsets for different industries.…
Now, some of these might have installed…when you originally set up Bluebeam,…but you can see them all at the link shown on your screen…so you can download and install…any that you might not already have.…Don't forget that in addition to the Bluebeam website,…we also have addition Bluebeam courses…available here in our online library…that will help you to continue to learn additional skills.…So thank you for viewing this course.…I appreciate your time, and good luck…
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.
