The Document Comparison features in Bluebeam Revu are great for spotting differences between revisions but did you realize you can also use the Overlay Pages option for your construction coordination?

Simply select the construction disciplines you want to coordinate and assign each an appropriate color in the overlay pages dialogue box. The great part about using the overlay pages function is that each discipline (file name) will automatically come across as a layer so you can toggle each discipline off/on as you work on the coordination. In the sample below we used overlay pages with three documents: S1.2, A401 and E201 being the structural framing plan, architectural rcp and electrical wiring diagram respectively. To view your layers, use the shortcut ALT + Y or select layers from the Tab Access Menu.

Bluebeam Revu is versatile and often one function serves multiple purposes. Once you overlay your coordination, you may want to assign work areas using Spaces and create a schedule for your specialty contractors, part of workface planning and the Fiatech Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) project.
