A Different Way to Highlight Objects in Bluebeam Revu
If you’re a Bluebeam Revu user, you’re probably familiar with the Highlight tool that is found under the Pen menu on the Markups tab. This is a great tool—you can scribble with it, and it won’t ever dry out or get lost. You can even draw nice, straight lines with it if you hold down the Shift key while you use it.
Today, we’re going to look at a different way that I like to highlight objects in Revu with the Snapshot tool. With the Snapshot tool (found on the Edit tab), you can grab geometry and then reproduce it over and over without having to redraw it just by hitting Control-V.
If you take a snapshot of a blank area of your document and paste the blank snapshot back into the drawing, you can set the Blend Mode to Screen and set a fill color to use the snapshot to highlight objects.
Watch the video below for a demo of this tip.

You can’t discuss technology in the building industry without mentioning BIM. However, those in the know are looking ahead to another emerging technology that will bring improvements to the industry: 3D laser scanning. Laser scanning can create a point cloud image using size and location data collected from real objects in a certain space.
In our increasingly connected world, effective “collaboration” becomes more critical to businesses everywhere. But what does collaboration mean for the construction industry? Here are some ways that companies in the construction industry are collaborating to improve project outcomes.
At first glance, I thought AutoCAD 2019 seemed light on new features. But then I heard about One AutoCAD. Check out my conversation with CADLearning’s Senior Content Manager David Cohn about the new release and what it means for AutoCAD users.
BIM is rapidly becoming more and more prevalent in the AEC industry. As this growth occurs, implementing 3D laser scanning can help designers and engineers process more information and create smoother workflows for a project. For architects, 3D laser scanning is beneficial at all stages of a project. Here’s why architects need to understand scanning:
Whether you are an architectural, MEP, or structural Revit user, all companies should know how to archive a Revit project and get it to a safe location. Here are directions for common scenarios when archiving Revit projects.
The 2017 products are out and that means it is time to start doing new installs and creating images. Learn more about updating your License Manager tools with Philip Charlson.

At the Autodesk One Team Conference, held in Las Vegas in March 2018, U.S. CAD received a 2018 Autodesk Platinum Club award in the “Net Subscription Growth – USA” category.
Do you share design files with non-Autodesk users who need to review your design for approval or buy-in? Doug Benoit shares how to decide which Autodesk viewer to use depending on what software you’re using.
Although the rendering option in Navisworks continues to improve, many of us want basic colors for our 3D Spatial Coordination and other useful tools. Many owners are dictating what colors they want model objects to be, to improve communication during design review and other important meetings. Improvement means change, and change often means moving buttons and commands. For those having trouble coloring their models, follow this sequence:
