Anything is possible.


Revu 10 pushes the limits of collaboration, cloud storage and project communication - delivering tools that enable you to do what you do better, without compromise. Combining intuitive PDF editing, viewing and markup technology with reliable file creation, Revu 10 goes beyond PDF and takes paperless workflows to a whole new level. The flexible, customisable interface provides all the necessary tools for accessing, managing and collaborating on the documents that you need, when you need them.




Batch create PDFs
Create batches of PDFs from AutoCAD®, Revit®, SolidWorks® and Microsoft® Office, and 3D PDFs from Revit and Navisworks® Manage using Revu's integrated plugins. You can even add security, stamps, headers and footers, flatten markups, overlay pages and compare drawing revisions to any number of PDFs at once.


Leave your mark, share your thoughts  Add markups to PDFs and 3D PDF views with customisable symbols, shapes, stamps and signatures. Save your tool sets in the exclusive Tool Chest™ and reapply later with just one click.

Collaborate in the cloud
Use Bluebeam Studio™ to redline PDFs in real-time with anyone, anywhere through Studio sessions. Also, use Studio projects - a simple document management system in the cloud - to store and add up to 5GBs of PDFs and other Windows files for free.


No more number crunching
Take length, area, perimeter, diameter, volume and radius measurements, count from PDFs and perform area cutouts electronically. Bluebeam does the hard work for you. View measurements in a list, add custom formulas to calculate costs or materials, or summarize and export to Excel®.





Compare and view, then view some more    Compare drawing revisions and automatically highlight the differences or use Overlay Pages to visually compare drawings. Even better, split your screen up to sixteen times with MultiView™ and sync screens to pan and zoom in unison.


Link to places and define spaces
Make your PDFs field ready. Use Links to easily create and update hyperlinked PDFs so that details, specifications and other project data are just a click away. Also, automatically track markups in defined rooms with Spaces.

Tablet PC compatibility
View and markup PDF files with the ease of your tablet pen. Bluebeam offers tablet-specific functionalities such as searchable ink, Windows Tablet PC Input Panels, pressure sensitivity, custom interface and pen-controlled zooming.
