Join Jim Rogers for an in-depth discussion in this video BIM 360 Docs for digital drawings, part of Construction Industry Weekly.
- [Instructor] Last week,…I introduced the topic of digital drawings…to replace those bulky rolls of plans…that we're all used to carrying around the job site.…And I explained that all you need to do…is ask for a PDF version of the plans…instead of a hard copy.…Now, this week,…we'll start looking at what that really means to you…and what your options are once you have that PDF file.…So let's start with the basics.…Here, I have that PDF file.…It's a single file.…It was sent to me by the designer,…and this single file contains all…of the sheets for the project.…
If I double click on it,…my Windows desktop environment is set…to open up PDF files in the internet browser,…and that's what it's done here.…So here's my set of drawings,…and you see I've got just a real simple toolbar here…that would allow me to print, save,…or zoom in and out.…So I'm going to zoom out a little bit,…and you see I can just use the scroll wheel…and scroll through my drawings…and look at all of the sheets…in my set of drawings.…Here's my foundation plan.…
