When creating a construction detail or a proposed layout, it is often easier to start with an existing drawing, photo, or other image. Jim demonstrates how to import images and extract details from existing PDF drawings and documents to use as a starting point to create your electronic drawing in Bluebeam REVU.
- [Voiceover] One of the easiest ways…to get started on a drawing,…now that we have our title block template done,…is to begin with some detail or photo…that's been provided to us by others.…So bliblium review gives us several different ways…to do this and I'm gonna quickly show you…a few of these different methods of working with…existing details, photos, or drawings,…and then we'll look at how to add to this…with the drawing or sketch tools.…So let's take a look at one of the simpler methods first…and this is what you would use if you had an existing photo…or a sketch or any file saved in an image format.…
So in this case, you can just start with your…title block template…that we've already created by selecting the drop down…arrow next to 'New' and we're gonna use My Title Block.…So we're gonna start out with this template…that we've created in the previous chapters.…And I'm gonna look at a couple of different methods…to just add existing image files to this.…So, I'm gonna click on Mark Up…and Image.…Now if I had a hard copy image that I wanted to scan in,…
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.
