Bluebeam Revu CAD improves communication, productivity and collaboration on projects by enabling digital processes from end to end. The professional PDF solution for CAD users, Revu CAD provides powerful PDF creation, markup and editing features for a paperless workflow.
Use Revu's plugins for AutoCAD®, Revit®, Navisworks® Manage, Navisworks Simulate, SolidWorks® and MS Office for one-button 2D and 3D PDF creation and batch options, or use the Bluebeam PDF printer to convert other CAD and Windows files to 10 different file formats. Revu automatically reads your drawing's orientation, scale, line weights, merged lines, plot style table, and page size, so there is no need to adjust your settings. Redline 2D and 3D PDFs with industry standard markups including text, clouds, highlights, CAD symbols, stamps, images and more. Save custom markups in the patented Tool Chest™ for easy reuse, and use Revu's editing capabilities to assemble PDFs of RFIs, submittals, bid sets and more. Perform takeoffs, automatically compare drawings, track markups in a list, integrate with SharePoint® or ProjectWise®, go mobile on a tablet PC or iPad, and collaborate with project partners around the world in real time using Revu's cloud-based solution, Bluebeam Studio™.
Revu includes direct plug-ins for one button PDF and batch creation from AutoCAD®, Revit®, Navisworks® Manage, Navisworks Simulate, SolidWorks®, and Microsoft® Office.
Easily tab between PDF files, launch multiple sessions of Revu at once and split your screen up to 16 times with MultiView™.
Create 3D PDFs from Revit, Navisworks Manage and Navisworks Simulate, navigate and manipulate 3D PDF models and add markups to 3D views.
Use the File Access tab to pin, organize, preview and reopen PDF files with a mouse click.
Search for keywords or phrases within PDF files and folders, or search for symbols regardless of variations in color, size and rotation, or intersecting line obstructions using Revu's exclusive VisualSearch™.
