OCR and the Pen Tool in Bluebeam

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.

If you’ve ever played the “I’m not touching you game” as a child, you know how important boundaries are and our need for space. Revit families are no different. A 3D element provides a great parametric visual of what we can expect outside of the virtual world, but without the proper clearances the equipment may not be given the space it truly needs to function.
If your firm is transitioning from AutoCAD to Revit, but still has a library full of old AutoCAD Details, you can rest assured. There are several ways to convert your AutoCAD Details into your Revit projects. Learn 4 simple steps from Jack Trexler:

With their combined 64 years of experience using AutoCAD, David and KaDe covered 5 major topics: Tech and Performance, UI, PDF Import, Text to MTEXT, and Xrefs updates. Here’s a breakdown:
To help you get up and running with BIM 360 Docs, here are the instructions for how to set up four common workflows within the system. These guides provide you with the steps that the Project Admin needs to take to set up these processes, and what the Project Member will see and be able to do.
Many architectural designers face the issue of bridging the gaps between preliminary design, design development and construction documentation in Revit. Users needed a tool to seamlessly move their designs in and out of Revit throughout their design process. With FormIt, you can start producing your 3D model designs on your tablet before your morning commute, pick up where you started on your office desktop and switch back to your tablet during your lunch-time meeting with a potential client.
U.S. CAD announced today it has entered into a strategic relationship with Pointfuse, developer of advanced point cloud processing software for the construction industry.
