Expedite Critical AEC Work Processes with Bluebeam Revu

Bluebeam Revu Australia

A2K is pleased to announce we are now partnering with innovative software company, Bluebeam to offer our customers Revu, a solution to create, markup and edit 2D and 3D PDFs.

Unlike other PDF solutions, Bluebeam Revu’s features were designed with the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry in mind.

Every single feature in Revu is designed specifically for the work AEC professionals do day in, day out. It provides a single solution to markup, track, collaborate, and archive discussions critical to the life of a project.

Revu provides plugins for Microsoft Office, AutoCAD, Revit, Navisworks Manage, Navisworks Simulate, SketchUp Pro and SolidWorks, for one-button PDF file creation.

This solution is ideal for major construction projects where many partners and contractors are involved. It allows for superior document control, distribution and management, to accelerate project lifecycles and simplify project closure and archiving.

It also improves tracking and efficiency by providing digital workflow solutions for paperless submittals, RFIs, bid sets, punchlists, as-builts, O&M manuals and more. Revu makes the entire punch process more efficient and cost-effective by enabling project teams to punch drawings electronically, speed up the distribution of punchlists and streamline back checks.

“Now that we are using Revu, we are able to create electronic drawings that better enable us to quickly manage change. For example, if equipment or flowlines are changed, we can easily move the markup onto the new P&ID without a lot of work. We can also use one master set of P&IDs with multiple layers of markups, which makes it easier for us and our clients to see various details and the big picture.”

Meet Bluebeam

Bluebeam Software makes smart, simple solutions for paperless workflows that leverage the PDF format. It all started way back in 1997, when they developed CAD to PDF creation technology for aerospace engineers. Now Bluebeam’s award-winning PDF creation, markup and editing solutions are used by the world’s top architecture, engineering and construction firms, as well as government agencies.

According to Bluebeam, their product development philosophy is simple. They don’t just create ‘easy-to-use’ software; they design ways that make their software feel like second-nature, by working to mimic the way you normally work with pen and paper.

Bluebeam takes the effort and guesswork out of working with PDFs, combining powerful editing, markup and collaboration technology with reliable file creation directly from Microsoft Office, AutoCAD, Revit and more.
