PASADENA, CA, Feb 3, 2015 – Today, Bluebeam Software, leading developer of PDF-based markup, measurement and collaboration solutions for architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), oil and gas,manufacturing and other technical professionals, announces the release of Bluebeam Revu 2015, the latest version of the company’s award-winning flagship solution. Revu 2015 introduces new features that enable project teams to keep complex document sets organized and uptodate, ensuring all team members are on the same page.
“To meet the demands of complex projects and condensed timelines, project teams need technology tosimplify communication between project stakeholders and remove workflow redundancies,” says Richard Lee, Bluebeam Software president and CEO. “Revu 2015 presents and polishes features that make marking upand managing document sets easier with greater markup tool functionality and batch automation, as well as more flexibility with how project information is shared.”
Expect Smarter Markups
One of Bluebeam’s most highly anticipated markup features is now available in Revu 2015. Sketch Tools allow users to quickly create new shapes to exacting measurements based on a PDF’s calibrated scale.The tools give users real-time length and angle feedback as they sketch details with their mouse or enter dimensions using their keyboard.
Also added in Revu 2015 is the Dynamic Tool Set Scaler, which enables markups to automatically resize precisely and proportionately when used on documents of different scales. Grouped markups in a drawing can also resize proportionately, regardless of scale setting.
Using Revu’s Camera tool, Capture 2.0 now allows users to embed videosinto markups. Users can scroll through images and play back videos directly from each markup’s Capture viewer. Markups containing Capture media can be tracked and viewed in Revu’s Markups list and exported as a PDF Summary.
Automate More Tasks
New in Revu 2015, Batch Slip Sheet (eXtreme edition only) automates the process of keeping complex file sets up to dateby allowing users toautomatically match new file revisions with previous corresponding file versions. All markups, hyperlinks and bookmarks are carried over from revision to revision.
An existing Revu feature, Sets, which allows teams to navigate a large collection of various PDF files as if they were a single multi-page document in a single tab, receives automation and categorization upgrades in Revu 2015.
Get on the Same PageFaster
Revu’s integrated cloud-based collaboration feature, Bluebeam Studio, includes enhancements to streamline project communication and provide more flexible options for controlling access to information.For example, password-protected StudioFileLinks can be sent to colleagues, even if they don’t have a Studio account. Permissionscan be set on a per folder basis within the Studio Projects document management system, and users can schedule expiration dates for real-time active Studio Sessions.
Bluebeam’s mobility solutions will get users where they need to go faster. New in Revu iPad 3.0, Studio GO enables large format files in Studio Projects and Studio Sessions to render instantly for quicker markup and navigation, without modifying the original documents. With Background Sync, Revu iPad users can download files while they continue to work in Revu.
