Take a huge sigh of relief, because Bluebeam is not your typical software company.
In short, Bluebeam Software makes smart, simple solutions for paperless workflows that leverage the PDF format. It all started way back in 1997, when we developed CAD to PDF creation technology for aerospace engineers. Now our award-winning PDF creation, markup and editing solutions are used by the world's top architecture, engineering and construction firms, as well as government agencies. We also have a strong following among tablet PC users, students and educators, accountants and even lawyers.
When it comes to developing innovative products, our philosophy is quite simple. We don't just create "easy-to-use" software, we design ways that make our software feel like second-nature. So, we're relentlessly working to mimic the way you normally work with pen and paper. We also avoid complex jargon and "corporatey" policies like the plague. In fact, we're confident you'll find Bluebeam to be a breath of fresh air, and appreciate that our people do everything they can to lend you a helping hand.
Speaking of Bluebeam employees, we're one big group of corporate misfits, and proud of it! We refuse to be confined by preconceived notions of what PDF software can and should do. We like to shake things up, tear 'em apart and make them our own. Or, completely ignore what others have done and make our own path. Our employees come from diverse technical and artistic backgrounds, and we've even been known to convert Bluebeam users into Bluebeam employees.
If you like to work hard, make a real impact and have a good time in the process, there just might be a place for you on our team.

Bluebeam Software Has Launched Revu 2015
to Simplify Document Management and Speed Up Project Communication
Latest release enables technical professionals to finish projects faster and work smarter
Bluebeam® Software, leading developer of PDF-based markup, measurement and collaboration solutions for architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), oil and gas, manufacturing and other technical professionals,
has announced the release of Bluebeam Revu® 2015, the latest version of the company’s award-winning flagship solution. Revu 2015 introduces new features that enable project teams to keep complex document sets organized and up to date, ensuring all team members are on the same page.
“To meet the demands of complex projects and condensed timelines, project teams need technology to simplify communication between project stakeholders and remove workflow redundancies," says Richard Lee, Bluebeam Software President and CEO. “Revu 2015 presents and polishes features that make marking up and managing document sets easier with greater markup tool functionality and batch automation, as well as more flexibility with how project information is shared.”
Expect Smarter Markups
One of Bluebeam’s most highly anticipated markup features is now available in Revu 2015. Sketch Tools allow users to quickly create new shapes to exacting measurements based on a PDF’s calibrated scale. The tools give users real-time length and angle feedback as they sketch details with their mouse or enter dimensions using their keyboard.
Also added in Revu 2015 is the Dynamic Tool Set Scaler, which enables markups to automatically resize precisely and proportionately when used on documents of different scales. Grouped markups in a drawing can also resize proportionately, regardless of scale setting.
Using Revu’s Camera tool, Capture 2.0 now allows users to embed videos into markups. Users can scroll through images and play back videos directly from each markup’s Capture viewer. Markups containing Capture media can be tracked and viewed in Revu’s Markups list and exported as a PDF Summary.
Automate More Tasks
New in Revu 2015, Batch Slip Sheet (eXtreme edition only) automates the process of keeping complex file sets up to date by allowing users to automatically match new file revisions with previous corresponding file versions. All markups, hyperlinks and bookmarks are carried over from revision to revision.
An existing Revu feature, Sets, which allows teams to navigate a large collection of various PDF files as if they were a single multi-page document in a single tab, receives automation and categorization upgrades in Revu 2015.
Get on the Same Page Faster
Revu’s integrated cloud-based collaboration feature, Bluebeam Studio™, includes enhancements to streamline project communication and provide more flexible options for controlling access to information. For example, password-protected Studio File Links can be sent to colleagues, even if they don’t have a Studio account. Permissions can be set on a per folder basis within the Studio Projects document management system, and users can schedule expiration dates for real-time active Studio Sessions.
Bluebeam’s mobility solutions will get users where they need to go faster. New in Revu iPad 3.0, Studio GO™ enables large format files in Studio Projects and Studio Sessions to render instantly for quicker markup and navigation, without modifying the original documents. With Background Sync, Revu iPad users can download files while they continue to work in Revu.
Revu 2015 Enhancements
Cloud+ Cloud+ combines the convenience of clouds and the clarity of callouts into a single tool, including the ability to customize the appearance properties for both components independently.
Batch Overlay Pages Simplify the process of overlay comparisons, which assigns different colors to each page to visually display differences between multiple pairs of files. New setup options auto-match files by pulling from file name, page label or page region.
Batch Compare Documents Speed up your current document comparison procedure. Batch Compare Documents, which automatically identifies and highlights all differences between multiple drawing revisions, now auto-matches files by file name, page label or page region.
Microsoft Office Export Enhancements Transform scanned PDFs in Revu into Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents that contain editable text. You can even select specific page regions to output, such as a section of table columns and rows from a PDF into an Excel spreadsheet.
Digital Signature Enhancements Conveniently view the status of all digital signatures and certificates within the new Digital Signatures tab. This includes invisible signatures from services such as DocuSign or digital IDs with embedded timestamps, which meet the requirement for PAdes LTV support.

Using Revu for working with typical Office
documents: When using Revu for general office
applications, a standard, general class computer may be used. A system
qualified to run Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8 would be a typical recommended
configuration. For systems using 32-bit Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8 , a bare
minimum of 2GB is recommended. For running 64-bit Windows 7 SP1 or Windows
8, a minimum of 4GB is recommended.
Using Revu for working with large sets of
engineering documents: When working with large drawing sets (for
example, construction project bid sets) in which the PDFs may contain many
hundreds of large format drawings, it is recommended that workstations have
adequate memory and processor resources. A recommended hardware
configuration would be an Intel i5 Dual Core 3.2GHz, Quad Core 2.3 GHz or
better processor, as well as 8 GB of RAM. Revu can run on systems with lower
specifications, however a workstation with these settings will provide the
