Improved Options for Bluebeam Studio Sessions

Just in case you haven’t heard Bluebeam has improved a few of its options for Studio Sessions.
In the past you were limited to 100 PDFs in a studio session. This was a definite restriction for many companies that often had projects sets exceeding 100 files.
Users were forced to combine their projects into a single PDF or multiple smaller sets in order to meet the 100 file restriction.
Two huge new features:
- The number of files in a session has now been raised from 100 to 5000.
- Individual file size went from 100 megabytes to one gigabyte each!
This should allow most companies the flexibility they need to share their files in a studio session without having to change any of their workflows.

In Civil 3D 2018, if you go to the Toolbox tab and expand Miscellaneous Utilities, you will see the category for Surfaces. Under that, you will see Quick Cross Section. Ron Couillard explains how to use the quick cross-section tool to get a fast look at your Civil 3D surfaces.
The acquisition creates a team with an unparalleled portfolio of hardware, software, and services to address the needs of the construction and building industry.
If you’re an architect or general contractor, you have probably experienced the many challenges of collaborating with the other team in your projects. It’s time the AEC industries shifted toward a more collaborative project delivery method. Learn all about IPD:
AutoCAD 2018 was officially released on March 21st, 2017, offering several new enhancements, features, and time-savers for the AutoCAD community.

You may have heard that with the 2017 release of Revit, Autodesk replaced the Revit vertical offerings (Architecture, MEP and Structure) with Revit (sometimes called “one-box”). What does this mean for you? Revit now contains the capabilities of all three verticals in one application. So, if you were previously using Revit Architecture, for example, you can now do everything you could do before (and more!) in Revit.
Title Blocks are essential sheets of information in your project that display details about your company, the client, the project and revisions. Learn how to super-charge your Revit Title Blocks and projects with these four expert tips.
