Architecture and Engineering firms can benefit from all of the great features integrated into Bluebeam, provided that smaller firms can swallow the initial cost of acquisition and ongoing maintenance.

Pros

Bluebeam is amazing. It has all of the features that draftspersons need to create effective take-offs. It almost has too many features when we first installed the Revu eXtreme software. They have a great support/training system though, and we've now installed this on every company computer.

Cons

It can be a bit cost prohibitive compared to other PDF editors. This is offset by the abundance of features in Bluebeam, however small businesses should ensure that the cost-benefit is worth it to them.

Pros

So many possibilities and features. Great scaling and editing tools. I love that you can easily edit documents and fill in forms.

Cons

A lot to learn. The search feature is not the best. We've had experiences when misspelled words in the pdf we not found with the search. Understandable; but this is not the case with Adobe

Overall I think Bluebeam Revu is a wonderful program. It is easy to use and difficult to make mistakes that aren't easily fixed. I think it is a necessity for anyone dealing with official documents, editing PDFs, and working in the architectural/construction industry.

Pros

There are so many pros about this program. My favorite tools would be the calibration tool for verifying and editing architectural plans, the stamp and markup tools for approving and commenting on official documents, and the comparison tool for overlaying revised documents to see design changes. I love that Bluebeam Revu is simple yet sophisticated.

Cons

One con is that whenever I lose network connection, my stamp folder loses the path to my stamp folder. It would be helpful if there was a way to save the default stamp folder so when I regain connection it will automatically connect. Another issue is with flattening. It would be nice if there was a password or something users could share with a team in order for everyone in the team to have access to flattening and unflattening. Perhaps there could be a way to choose whether to only have the user who flattened be able to unlock it or to give access to teams.

Pros

As a mechanical subcontractor, there are specific things we need to do with PDFs on a consistent basis, and Bluebeam solves a lot of those very easily. The markup tools are great, the takeoff tools are great, and syncing/sharing files in the cloud is great.

Cons

One area that I wish Bluebeam would improve in is in the area of PDF forms. When using competing products like Adobe Acrobat, you can create really powerful forms for electronic collection easily. Not quite as much with Bluebeam.

Pros

I love everything about this program! It fits every need that we have, as a general contracting company. The measure tool is by far my favorite, you can set any scale that you want and get accurate measurements off of plans without having to go to the field at all. It's extremely user friendly and easy to learn. This software lets us do anything from stamping that a plan has been received to authenticating signatures on contracts. I recommend bluebeam for everyone.

Cons

The only slight issue I have is the fact that you aren't able to view two documents at the same time; when you scroll down on one of the documents the other one scrolls to the same place. This is a great feature for comparing documents with minor revisions that you need to see, but it isn't beneficial if the two documents didn't start out as the same.

I was forced to use Bluebeam by my company unwilling to work with Adobe that I like to use. Now that I am using Bluebeam I can see some value in it compared to Adobe.

Pros

I like Bluebeam for reviewing PDFs, comparing new PDFs to older versions, marking them up with my notes, and doing small takeoffs.

Cons

The form tool is difficult to use but it does work. Extracting and inserting sheets is more complicated then drag and drop.

If you need a document editing/viewing software, this is it.

Pros

Bluebeam can handle everything I throw at it. I can convert from almost any format to a PDF, images, office docs, websites, you name it. Not only that, it can backwards convert to most file types. I can take an image of text and convert it to a word document, or take a matrix on a set of plans and go to excel.

Cons

Some of the more advanced features are a pain to figure out. There is so much functionality built into the program that I've actually had to relearn things because they are buried in menus and options.

We have successfully uploaded thousands of PDF files for subcontractors to utilize on a daily basis. In addition any mark-ups have been saved and shared with the project team to ensure that all parties are on the same page at all times.

Pros

Using the Studio aspect of the program, our project team is able to upload virtually any document to an online server. From here any other party can view and download these files without requesting them from the project team. Makes file sharing efficient.

Cons

It becomes difficult to track documents in the software as the logging option is difficult to learn and time consuming.

I am not an engineer, but work for a firm and have worked on several projects using bluebeam to review CAD plans and drawings.

There are so many options that allow you to properly markup plans, ability to assign certain color flags to pages, and you can also track markups, which is great when several people are working on the same file.

When you save a document the save window takes up the entire screen. There is no way to reduce the size of the window or even move it to my second monitor. I am typically multitasking and not being able to minimize or move the save screen is problematic.
How do you delete a stamp from the drop down list? Many of the stamps I have created are now obsolete but there is no obvious way to delete them or even rename them.
What about a back button to reverse an action done in error? This function does not appear to be available.

Bluebeam is invaluable in our industry. Tracking mark-ups, overlaying drawings and being part of a session have all been invaluable.

Pros

I really like the Overlay feature that Bluebeam has. As an engineer/designer, this has been one of the most valuable tools to find and locate the differences between two or more drawings.

Cons

There is a learning curve to this powerful software, but there are many video and testing tools available to help become proficient.
