OCR and the Pen Tool in Bluebeam
This blog post was originally written for the Managed Design blog. Managed Design is now a U.S. CAD company, so please check back here at www.uscad.com/blog for more written articles from Ted Moberg and our new U.S. CAD Minnesota team.”
The Pen Markup tool is the one many gravitate to when they start to mark up a drawing for the first time. And why not? It is the tool you’d use to mark up a real paper document. But I do have – or I did have – an issue with the fact that there was little data associated with the scribbling. Also most handwriting is hard to read and is left open to interpretation.
Not any more. Now with Revu eXtreme 2015.5, hand-written notes are automatically filtered through the OCR engine in Revu and the text is added to the Comments field in the markup. Now you can search and filter for those scribbles and you won’t have to constantly ask to have them translated.

In the last blog I started down the road of successful Record Model (RM) creation, because as we know, Record Models are one of the most powerful demonstrations of Building INFORMATION Modeling. In part two, I wrap up this glorious feat with not one, but TWO amazing tips that cause the most grief with RM’s, hard paths versus relative paths and why are there so many links showing? I have shortened certain steps to keep the blog interesting, if you want the full procedure contact U.S. CAD and we can give you the exact steps towards an incredible deliverable that has been tried and tested.
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.
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.
