Attention Steel Fabricators, Erectors and Estimators. Are you currently using 20 colored highlighters, scratch paper, a calculator, a Planimeter, cheater glasses, and Ibuprofen to complete your takeoffs/estimates? You’re in luck, I started my career as a Steel Detailer, so I understand the drawings you’re looking through. I also worked as a BIM Manager transitioning 70 team members in seven locations into 3D workflows. Now I teach and I can assure you, there is a better way to do estimates and material takeoffs with Bluebeam Revu.
Whether you’re a master at using Bluebeam’s array of PDF tools or a beginner who’s just getting started, you’re likely creating new workflows now that you have power of paperless documentation and online collaboration.
