When it comes to reviewing designs, it’s important that all project team members have access to the same information. When project challenges arise, 3D data can provide valuable information and help formulate solutions. But for many building and manufacturing teams, not everyone is using 3D design software. What’s more, oftentimes the people whose input is needed are located in cities, states and sometimes even continents away. How can these teams quickly meet, effectively review models and propose solutions when they aren’t in the same room?
To solve this challenge, Bluebeam® Software has developed Revu®, a 2D and 3D PDF creation, markup and collaboration solution that allows project partners to review and annotate 3D PDFs regardless of the software originally used to generate the model. When using Revu’s integrated cloud technology, Bluebeam Studio™, these document-based reviews can take place online in real time, or any time, from anywhere on a desktop or tablet PC. Users can meet at a specific time to manipulate 3D PDFs and annotate in unison or log in separately at more convenient times to add their feedback. All the while, Revu tracks who said what and when — essentially adding the “meeting notes” directly onto project PDFs.
Firms leveraging Bluebeam’s anywhere, anytime 3D PDF collaboration capabilities to host document-based 3D meetings in the cloud are reporting 30 percent faster design reviews, turning weeks of discussion into days. Isn’t that worth adding a whole new dimension to your meetings?
