Description

With Bluebeam Revu®'s intuitive measurement tools and customizable interface, we can turn your highlighters into data-rich takeoff tools. This session will cover standard measurement tools and settings, various customization options, and the results in the Markups List.   

Learning Objectives: 

  • Introduction to Viewports 

  • Measurement Tips & Tricks 

  • Custom Estimating Tools 

You will need a fully functioning version of Bluebeam Revu® 2018 or newer. Any Windows version is ok (Standard, CAD, or eXtreme). The Mac version will not work. If you have an older version, you can download a trial and install it ‘side by side' with your existing install. This will allow you to continue to use your older version without losing your license and you can use the new version to follow along in the training.

You can download a free 30-day trial here

 

Delivery Method:  Virtual Session – Zoom Meetings

Course Fee Includes:  Access to the course, course materials, and a digital certificate upon completion.

This course is delivered in partnership with local and provincial construction associations across Canada. You will be participating with a group of industry peers from multiple regions.

Sharing a single registration between two or more individuals is not permitted. Please register each person that will be in attendance.

Prerequisites

Participants are required to have completed the Bitesize Bluebeam 1:  Baseline Basics course prior to attending this session.  

Technical Requirements

1.  Computer or laptop - This course will involve on-screen interaction with your instructor and classmates, reading/viewing on-screen content (slides or videos), and interacting via typing with questions or responses.  

You will need TWO screens for the training to be effective.  Cell phones or tablets will not be adequate.

  • The first screen needs to be a Windows computer with Bluebeam Revu® 2018 installed.

  • The second screen is to display the Zoom meeting

2. Software - You will need a fully functioning version of Bluebeam Revu® 2018.  Any Windows version is ok (Standard, CAD, or eXtreme).  The Mac version will not work.  If you have an older version, you can download a 2018 trial and install it ‘side by side’ with your existing install. This will allow you to continue to use your older version without losing your license and you can use the new version to follow along in the training.

You can download a free 30-day trial of Bluebeam Revu® here.

3.  A mouse with scroll wheel (Mandatory) - In Bluebeam, there are several right-click shortcuts, and the wheel will help you zoom in/out on documents.
4.  Webcam (Mandatory) – in order to engage and collaborate, participants will be expected to have their webcams on for the duration of the class.
5. Microphone (Mandatory)
6.  Internet connection - For best results, you will want to ensure you have an internet connection with an upload/download speed of 3-5 Mbps. You can test your internet speed here. The minimum recommended speed is 1.5 Mbps, but anything below 3 Mbps may result in loss of quality or buffering. Ideally hardwired connection versus wireless for stability - connect your computer directly to your router using an ethernet cable, rather than using your home wi-fi.
7.  A quiet space with minimal distractions - the microphone will be engaged for interactive sessions. Please plan to be fully engaged in the class and clear your work schedule just as you would for the in-class program.
8. Comfortable chair
