    The Bluebeam Studio downtime this week has been outrageous, does anyone have any further information about what is going on? Based on social media posts I’ve seen it seems very widespread.

    It has been painful! They should really test the changes before they go live!!!

    Yeah they had a big update last friday and apparently it broke something.

    If not already subscribed I would recommend signing up for updates here:

    Makes for an interesting training session when students are expecting to learn and we can’t even log in. Bugs happen, hope they get it up soon.

    I mean, this is the nature of online services. Sometimes shit happens, even to the biggest of companies.

    I remember a couple years ago there was a BIM360 outage that wreaked all kinds of havoc.

    It happens. It sucks. But it’s not a frequent thing, so just adapt best you can until it comes back.

      There used to be an option to have the data locally (Studio Enterprise) which I miss (mostly because sessions didn’t expire.) Hoping for a more straightforward week.

    Not sure how many of you have seen my post on LinkedIn (, but figured I would give the quick recap from the response from Bluebeam.

    The weekend of March 1-3, they migrated their US Studio services to be cloud hosted. During their rigorous testing, they didn’t have the issues they are experiencing now. They have a plan and path to resolve the issues, it’s just not a quick
    fix unfortunately. They are not expecting Studio to be back to normal uptime this week (March 11-15) and expect their to be daily issues/degraded services.

    I’ve basically told our staff to pull files from Sessions (if they can) and work the “old school” way until Bluebeam has Studio back to normal.
