WHAT IS THIS BLUEBEAM TRAINING DAY.
TRAINING DAY FORMAT.
The full day was split up into 7 / one-hour sessions, ranging from basic functions and tips and general workflows, to more complex capabilities, finishing off with a real-life workflow.
1. Revu basics
2. Bluebeam Studio & Design Reviews.
3. Creating & Managing Digital Drawing Sets.
4. Defects inspection.
5. Take-offs and estimates.
6. Revu tips & tricks.
7. Implementing Revu within your team.
Bluebeam asked me to present on topic No. 5 – Take-offs and Estimates.
This session is a fairly comprehensive workflow for QS or just for sanity checks.
I will not list the entire items here, instead please log into this Bluebeam Project to download the PowerPoint and Dataset for the session.

Was the training day worth the time and effort? In short, yes, absolutely! But it did depend on your skill set.
The LinkedIn page did suggest that It is for “new users or users who want to grow more confident using the core functionality of Bluebeam® Revu® and discover how Revu can be used throughout the entire project lifecycle.” I believe that many light bulbs would have gone off during the day for most attendees. There was a lot that was explained on the day and like I said during my session, Bluebeam has the ability to be broken down into its different core features and can be learnt in isolation to one another and then combined when your confidence grows. For example, creating Tool Sets in isolation to Custom Columns then later combining the two to pre-populate data to the Markup Area with prefilled Custom Markups in your Tool Set. Have a look at my Propping Dimension to help understand that last point. Good luck to all that attended, if you missed this round, hopefully, I see you at another Bluebeam session, anybody in Texas for the Extreme Conference? Look out for the tall Aussie with the odd name.
Lastly, these sessions were the kick-off for Bluebeam user groups. Sydney has started the ball rolling if you are interested in starting one in your city reach out to Bluebeam or your A2K representative for assistance.
