Overall Satisfaction with Bluebeam Revu

I absolutely love Bluebeam. I generally have to use this program to go through drawings and edit them. I use this software to review and edit drawings that our engineers do. I red-line them and make sure that dimensions match up. It is a wonderful program and very wonderful to use.

Pros

  • Great tools in Bluebeam to edit documents.
  • I love that this software has the ability to flatten sheets!
  • I think this software is wonderful for anyone who is in construction looking at plans.

Cons

  • I think it would be better if the take off portion was better.
  • I think it would be better if there were other editing tools.
  • I would like to see the opening of two sheets look a little cleaner. It is really awkward.
  • The impact has been great. Allows me to use less time doing a task meaning I can do other tasks.
  • I think the impact has been great because I am able to help my staff learn what they are doing wrong in drawing their plans.
  • I think the impact is a little negative because of the fact that the take off tools aren't very great.
I think Bluebeam is 100% better than Adobe or any PDF viewing like that because of the fact that there are so many more tools to use and the layout of the program is awesome. I really like this software, it is great for anyone who is in construction industry.
I love using Bluebeam in the construction industry. I have used it to review plans, edit plans and of course I use it for take offs and flattening pages that I have edited. I am able to put a signature on something, which is really easy to use. Everything about Bluebeam is awesome.
