Bluebeam Revu Estimating Take-off MethodsBluebeam Revu’s measurement functions provide quick methods for estimators to take-off length, area and quantities.  Painters, drywallers and other specialty trades often need to calculate wall area quickly and efficiently on a construction project.  With Bluebeam Revu you have three take-off choices.

  1. Elevation views and the area tool (most accurate, most time consuming)
  2. Perspective drawing and the volume tool 
  3. Perspective drawings and the perimeter tool

With options 2 and 3 there will be further calculations necessary to account for doors and windows.  Knowing that you’ll all want to try these faster options and get more bids completed, I’m providing this handy reference document explaining the process using the Bluebeam Revu Measurement tools.  You can download this free PDF (and yes, you can view it first because I’m using Box.com).
