Bluebeam Studio is an cloud-based application within Bluebeam Revu that allows for collaboration over the entirety of a project’s life cycle. Bluebeam Studio has been available for free from all versions of Revu – Standard, CAD, and eXtreme – from 2012 on. Studio features two modules: Studio Sessions and Studio Projects. Studio Sessions allows users to collaborate on PDFs in real time, letting all team members place markups and view edits as they occur. Studio Projects is a document management system that allows users to store an unlimited number of documents and manage access rights for collaborators to check out and edit those files.
To access Bluebeam Studio, you will need to first access the Studio panel and login to a Studio account, which can be created for free directly from within the program. This article will cover how to access the Studio panel, create a Studio account, and login to Bluebeam Studio.
ACCESSING THE STUDIO PANEL
The Studio panel can be accessed from the panel access bar. This panel may appear either on the left, right, or bottom of the screen, depending on the Profile that you are using. If you are using the default Revu profile, this panel will be available from the bottom of the left panel access bar.
If you can not find the Studio panel icon in any of those locations, right click on the left panel access bar and select Show. Choose the Studio icon from the dropdown list to display it within the left panel access bar.
CREATING A STUDIO ACCOUNT
With the Studio panel open, you can now login to Bluebeam Studio. If a Server isn’t automatically selected, select the Server dropdown to select a server location.
Next, select Sign In.
Here, you can login to Studio if you already have a Studio account. If you don’t yet have a Studio account, you can create an account by selecting the Create Account tab.
Here, enter in your First Name, Last Name, Bluebeam Display Name, Email, and Password. Select Create Account to continue.
You’ll be prompted to check your email inbox to confirm your email. Within this email, select Confirm My Bluebeam ID.
You will then be able to login to Bluebeam Studio.
LOGGING IN TO BLUEBEAM STUDIO
Returning to the Studio panel, select the Sign In button again.
This time, stay on the Sign In tab and enter in the email address and password that you had used to create the account. Then, select Sign In to sign in to Bluebeam Studio.
You will now be able to access both Studio Sessions and Studio Projects as needed.
