Leading BIM Software, Vectorworks will join forces with Bluebeam studios for the first time, to develop an online review and approval process for digital construction drawings and 3D models
The collaborative service will allow many designers, architects, contractors and owners to contribute to drawings and models, regardless of their location.
Vectorworks users can publish drawing sets as data-rich 2D PDFs or models as 3D PDFs to Vectorworks Cloud Services, where they can launch a Bluebeam Studio Session and then invite participants to compare, mark up and collaborate in real time using the tools in Bluebeam Revu. Marked-up PDFs can then be saved back to Vectorworks Cloud Services for easy storage and file management.
On the partnership, Daniel Monaghan, Vice President of marketing at Vectorworks said:
“In a traditional drawing review process, PDF files are typically exchanged by email, then printed and manually marked up.
By moving to a cloud-based review workflow, collaboration among project team members becomes easier and helps avoid mistakes, and ultimately allows projects to run more smoothly by reducing review time and costs. By making it easy to share and review files digitally, we’re helping to connect design and construction workflows in ways no other BIM program can offer.”
