Site Planning just became easier with the Blubeeam Revu 2015 release thanks to the new Sketch Tools. Whether you want to place a crane, trailer or define a temporary parking lot you can now define dimensions and also create scalable tools to reuse with your common site plan items. Creating markups to scale are useful on shop drawings, floor plans, installation detail as well.
The new markup sketch tools include a polygon, ellipse, polyline or rectangle. You can use the drag out for a rectangle and it will pop-up the dimensions as you drag, or enter individual dimensions. Let’s see it in action
Dynamic Tool Set Scaler:
To create dynamic scalable tools you’ll need to define the baseline scale of your tool set. This also works with grouped shapes. I’d also recommend it for landscaping elements, fixtures, furnishings, and your RFI and submittal place holders (those markups that hyperlink to the actual forms) for a consistent look to your owner’s as-builts.
Bluebeam continues to deliver on their promises with architecture, engineering and construction tools to make the project team more productive. With the site planning and design capabilities in the new sketch tools and dynamic tool set scaler you’ll want to revisit your tool sets and custom profiles so your team can be more productive.
