Bluebeam Software announced the release of Revu 12, the latest version of the company’s flagship solution. This year’s Revu enhancements better enable users in document-intensive industries to digitally collaborate on project documents and more easily connect the office to the field, the company says.
“Revu 12 introduces and refines features to make accessing and managing project information more field-friendly, wherever the field might be,” said Richard Lee, Bluebeam Software President and CEO. “Our customers need to keep projects moving whether they are in an office, at the jobsite or on a camping trip, and the technology in Revu 12 makes it easier to finish projects faster and work better.”
New in Revu 12, Capture gives users the ability to add multiple photos from the field or an image library to any markup. The Capture viewer allows users to click through all embedded images, and the photos display in PDF summary reports so team members can see more details.
According to the company, Revu’s 3D PDF features enable all project partners to get to hard-to-reach places within 3D models that have been exported from Revit, Navisworks, SolidWorks or any IFC file. With Revu 12’s new SketchUp Pro plug-in, users can now create 3D PDFs from SketchUp Pro to leverage all of Revu’s 3D markup and navigation functionality for faster issue resolution.
AutoMark in Revu 12 allows users to create bookmarks and page labels by combining multiple page regions, such as sheet labels and sheet numbers, and then adding prefixes, suffixes and symbols. AutoMark also now works with files that contain non-searchable text, such as scans, so all PDFs can be put in order, regardless of how they were made.
Enhancements to Bluebeam Studio, Revu’s integrated cloud-based collaboration solution, include the option for Studio attendees to sign up for daily e-mail notifications of changes to project documents without having to log into Studio. Full control of a Studio Session, where project partners can comment on the same PDFs in real time, can be granted by a Session administrator to a trusted colleague, passing along the same Studio administration rights as the host.
