Calibrating Plan/Profile Drawings in Bluebeam Revu

This week’s workflow tip,

Whether you’re designing roads, underground utilities, above-ground utilities, grading, drainage, sanitary sewer, or any other civil design systems, you know it requires Plan and Profile drawings. Check out my latest YouTube video where I show how quickly you can calibrate the drawings with different vertical and horizontal scales. I’ll then show how we can use an Area Measurement to calculate an average volume for Cut & Fill quantities and estimates. Don’t forget to Subscribe to my channel while you’re there. If this has you thinking of other applications for these tools, leave me a comment!
