Bluebeam Software Launches Revu 12 for Better Field-Ready Document Management and Project Collaboration

Today, Bluebeam® Software, leading developer of PDF-based markup, measurement and collaboration solutions for architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), oil and gas, manufacturing and other technical professionals, is announcing the release of Revu® 12, the latest version of the company’s flagship solution. This year’s Revu enhancements better enable users in document-intensive industries to digitally collaborate on project documents and more easily connect the office to the field.

“Revu 12 introduces and refines features to make accessing and managing project information more field-friendly, wherever the field might be,” says Richard Lee, Bluebeam Software President and CEO. “Our customers need to keep projects moving whether they are in an office, at the jobsite or on a camping trip, and the technology in Revu 12 makes it easier to finish projects faster and work better.”

Share More Details

New in Revu 12, Capture gives users the ability to add multiple photos from the field or an image library to any markup. The Capture viewer allows users to easily click through all embedded images, and the photos display in PDF summary reports so team members can see more details.

Revu’s 3D PDF features enable all project partners to get to hard-to-reach places within 3D models that have been exported from Revit®, Navisworks®, SolidWorks® or any IFC file. With Revu 12’s new SketchUp Pro plug-in, users can now create 3D PDFs from SketchUp Pro to leverage all of Revu’s 3D markup and navigation functionality for faster issue resolution.

Access Information Faster

Accessing project files in the field remains challenging—even digitally. Newly improved AutoMark™ in Revu 12 allows users to create bookmarks and page labels by combining multiple page regions, such as sheet labels and sheet numbers, and then easily adding prefixes, suffixes and symbols. AutoMark also now works with files that contain non-searchable text, such as scans, so all PDFs can be put in order, regardless of how they were made.

With the introduction of Batch Link®, Revu 12 users can automatically link up entire document sets quickly and easily by creating an unlimited number of hyperlinks by file name, page label or page region so project information is just a click away.

Creating lean documents for the field can limit the flexibility of working with related documents. Sets™ 2.0 gives users the ability to manage and navigate unlimited files as if they are a single document, in a single tab, using a new convenient list view. Hyperlinks within a Set also now automatically redirect to ensure access to the latest Set document revisions.

Get More Out of PDFs

Takeoffs and estimations, in the office or at the jobsite, are easier than ever with Revu 12’s measurement enhancements. When users take one measurement, Revu now automatically calculates all other related measurements, including Wall Area, and displays them in the Markups list, which tracks all annotations. Measurements are no longer limited to one scale with Revu’s new ability to set separate X and Y scales on a PDF. And the added ability to export sort totals from the Markups list to CSV or XML allows users to get more data from PDFs.

Revu’s new SmartGroup technology enables users to quickly view and make changes to individual annotations within a related group of markups or elements. Additionally, grouped measurements will now automatically calculate a subtotal in the Markups list.

Stay in the Know

Enhancements to Bluebeam Studio™, Revu’s integrated cloud-based collaboration solution, include the option for Studio attendees to sign up for daily email notifications of changes to project documents without having to log into Studio. Full control of a Studio Session, where project partners can comment on the same PDFs in real time, can be granted by a Session administrator to a trusted colleague, passing along the same Studio administration rights as the host so valuable conversations keep moving forward.

Though cloud is the future of enterprise computing, a smooth transition of legacy applications and systems is critical for seamless business operations. IT professionals are eager to start leveraging the cost, scale and other benefits of cloud, but with massive investments already in place in existing infrastructure and a number of compliance and resource hurdles, it can be challenging to move to a cloud-based infrastructure.
The dynamic nature of the cloud means that change is a constant when it comes to modern cloud-based infrastructure. Delivering modern applications to end users, therefore, is a constantly shifting challenge. Delivery automation helps IT Ops teams ensure that apps are providing an optimal end user experience over hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud environments, no matter what the current state of the infrastructure is. To employ a delivery automation strategy that reflects your business rules, making r...
