Event Description

Did you know you can export to an Excel spreadsheet, or even link directly to that Excel template file full of formulas you’ve been using for years? In this advanced course you’ll learn how to create custom columns, embedding formulas, and information organization. 

 

Learning Objectives: 

  • Custom Estimating Tools (Continued from “Bitesize Bluebeam 2: Basic Material Takeoffs & Estimates”) 
  • Collecting Rich Data with Custom Columns 
  • Reports and Exporting Data 

 

You will need a fully functioning version of Bluebeam Revu® 2018 or newer. Any Windows version is ok (Standard, CAD, or eXtreme). The Mac version will not work. If you have an older version, you can download a trial and install it ‘side by side’ your existing install. This will allow you to continue to use your older version without losing your license and you can use the new version to follow along in the training.

Additional Information

 Technical Requirements:

 

1.      Computer or laptop

 

This course will involve on-screen interaction with your instructor and classmates, reading/viewing on-screen content (slides or videos), and interacting via typing with questions or responses. For this reason, cellphones or  tablets will not be adequate.

 

You will need TWO screens for the training to be effective.

  • The first screen needs to be a Windows computer with Bluebeam Revu® 2018  installed.
  • The second screen is to display the Zoom meeting 
  • Tablets and cellphones would not be suitable as a second screen. 

2.      Software - You will need a fully functioning version of Bluebeam Revu® 2018 . Any Windows version is ok (Standard, CAD, or eXtreme). The Mac version will not work. If you have an older version, you can download a 2018 trial and install it ‘side by side’ your existing install. This will allow you to continue to use your older version without losing your license and you can use the new version to follow along in the training.

 

You can download a free 30-day trial here

 

3.      A mouse with scroll wheel (Mandatory) In Bluebeam there are several right-click shortcuts, and the wheel will help you zoom in/out on documents. 

 

4.       Webcam (Mandatory) – in order to engage and collaborate, participants will be expected to have their webcams on for the duration of the class

 

5.      Microphone (Mandatory)

 

6.      Internet connection - For best results, you will want to ensure you have an internet connection with an upload/download speed of 3-5 Mbps. You can test your internet speed here. Minimum recommended speed is 1.5 Mbps, but anything below 3 Mbps may result in loss of quality or buffering. Ideally hardwired connection versus wireless for stability - connect your computer directly to your router using an ethernet cable, rather than using your home wi-fi.

 

7.      A quiet space with minimal distractions - microphone will be engaged for interactive sessions. Please plan to be fully engaged in the class and clear your work schedule just as you would for the in-class program.
