Construction Estimators have been spending much of their estimating time counting electrical recepticals, sprinkler heads, and trees. The estimating take-off process has just been revolutionized with Bluebeam Revu 11’s Visual Search. Manual counting has ended for the estimator.
Construction Estimating will never be the same. Revu’s powerful search capabilities allow you to search for symbols within a PDF document. Revu’s exclusive VisualSearch™ allows you to select any symbol on a PDF and search for all instances that it occurs in the current document, all open documents, or even a folder – regardless of the symbol’s rotation, color size, or line obstructions. What’s great is you can highlight or “check” every instance and have a count drop into the Markups list (A spreadsheet-like area that can be exported to Excel).
Visual Search is just one piece of Revu’s measurement capabilities. Watch the video. You just won’t believe your eyes!
