In addition to drawing shapes and lines to scale to create your details and layouts, you can use the other markup tools contained in Bluebeam REVU to add notes, dimensions and callouts. In this video segment, Jim demonstrates how to use these tools to add information to a drawing to make it look complete and professional.
- [Voiceover] So I finished cleaning up the drawing…and I saved my progress so far.…And now I'm ready to add a few final bits…of information before sending this on to my customer.…To do that, I'm going to go up…and use my standard markup tools.…Again, if they're not visible, click on Markup…and get your markup tools available.…Again, now I can continue to add any information…that needs to be added to this drawing.…I'm going to go ahead and use the Typewriter tool.…Click here just to tell them, make sure…they understand this is the ramp.…
Go back and grab the Select tool…at the bottom of the screen.…Move that to the middle of the ramp.…I can also use the Properties tab…to change the font size or the text color…and make it look like I want it to look.…I think that's fine right there,…so I'm going to go ahead now and I'm gonna…draw some arrows here in the drive lanes…to let them know how the traffic's gonna flow.…And to do that, I'm gonna use the Line tool.…
Let's zoom in first.…Get a little closer view of where…we're gonna add these arrows.…
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.
