Bluebeam, Inc., leading developer of software solutions for the architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) industries, announces the release of Revu 2016.5.2, empowering Revu users to streamline digital workflows, increase efficiency and unlock productivity by leveraging the new Microsoft Surface Studio and Surface Dial.
The new Surface Studio from Microsoft is a unique all-in-one computer designed for creative workflows. Surface Studio turns every desk into a collaborative work environment by effortlessly switching between desktop- and tabletop-viewing orientations and interfacing with a variety of creative input tools, including touch, stylus, mouse and the new Surface Dial. This innovative control of display orientation, and the two-handed, on-screen, interface-assisted workflows it introduces, opens the door to targeted software development tailor-made for the AEC industry.
Revu 2016.5.2 now empowers industry professionals to leverage Surface Studio’s innovative enhancements to simplify tasks and create new value for project teams. Place Surface Dial on the screen to instantly access a radial menu of Revu tools on the page. Annotation appearance properties, undo/redo editing functionality, the Tool Chest, Markups List, Layers and Tab Access can all be administered through intuitive scrolling. Revu and Surface Studio work together seamlessly, with the work of one hand informing the functions of the other so focus can be maintained on the task being performed.
“The power of collaboration extends beyond teams, to the way new hardware and innovative software can work together to introduce ways of working that are beyond what was once possible,” says Richard Lee, Bluebeam President and CEO. “Working closely with Microsoft on this integrated release allows Revu users to immediately improve productivity.”
