In Bluebeam REVU, you can create custom Tool Chests to save and store the customized markup tools you can create. Jim shows you how to create new Tool Chest and how to store your custom markup tools in these folders. Jim also demonstrates how to export these custom Tool Chest to others and how to import Tool Chests that have been shared with you.
- [Voiceover] Like I said earlier,…creating all of the custom tools, lines and symbols up front…can be a little tedious and time consuming.…So, I don't want to have to do this every time.…For example, I don't want to have to redraw…these parking spaces every time I do…a parking structure layout.…And in fact, any time I create a new type of markup…I probably want to save it somewhere…so that I can find it and use it again later.…So to do that, let's take a look at the toll chest again…in the left screen panel…that we left open from the last video segment.…The tool chest is where I want to store all of my markups…and where I can set their functionality.…
So I'm still in the takeoffs profile,…and that's showing me several different tool sets.…Again, these were for measuring.…So, there's one for drywall.…There's one for electrical, one for mechanical,…one for concrete, et cetera.…And what I wanna do is I want to go ahead and manage those…by clicking on the gear icon underneath the tool chest.…You see, when I highlight that it says manage tool sets.…
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.
