Millions of architecture, engineering, and construction professionals all over the world utilize Bluebeam software to help their projects go smoothly. But who exactly is Bluebeam and what can their software do for your project?

Bluebeam is a software company specializing in design tools for the AEC (Architecture, Engineering, and Construction) industry. Bluebeam was created in 2002 by Richard Lee in Pasadena, California. In 2014, Bluebeam was purchased by Nemetschek which is now its parent company. Today there are over 2 million active bluebeam software users in 130 different countries. 

What is Bluebeam Revu?

A majority of Bluebeam software is used by AEC professionals to edit, markup, and share PDF documents. Bluebeam’s main software is Bluebeam Revu, a digital workflow solution software. 

Bluebeam Revu is built on the backbone of the surprisingly powerful and dynamic nature of PDF documents. PDF documents not only store a copy of an image, they have the ability to hold a lot of information including annotations, markups, layers, signatures, and even 3D information. Bluebeam Revu allows users to utilize the power of PDFs by giving them the ability to edit, organize and manage projects within them. Bluebeam functions by essentially turning ordinary PDF documents into editable spreadsheets. 

Bluebeam Revu’s powerful system allows users to:

Access to dynamic tools

Blubeam Revu allows you to take quick, precise measurements with custom measurement tools; turn scanned drawings into text-searchable PDFs, easily edit and markup documents and much more. 


Meet with design partners on the same document, review it and add markups, all in real time.


Users have access to their own profile and their entire project is stored safely in the cloud. 

Stay on track

Your profile is designed as a centralized location for your project where you can create, annotate, and share documents so that your whole team can know what needs to be done and exactly where their tasks can be found.
