When I talk about how Bluebeam helps design and construction firms go paperless, I always mention that Bluebeam’s PDF markup tools provide industry-standard tools for redlining drawings. So even though you’re marking up PDFs electronically and not using pen and paper, you’re still using the trusted tools of the trade.
For example, not too long ago, if you needed to redline a drawing with a circle, you probably would have used a compass. Now you can use Bluebeam’s ellipse tool.
Or, if you needed to add CAD symbols or other common shapes, you would have used templates like these to stencil them in:
Now you can find CAD symbols and other common shapes in Bluebeam Tool Sets:
Takeoffs used to be calculated with slide rules. Now you can do this electronically with Bluebeam’s measurement tools.
There are so many other “paper and pen” workflows that Bluebeam replaces. What’s your favorite thing to do digitally with Bluebeam? Let me know. And remember, to keep on PDF’ing!
