System Requirements for Bluebeam Revu 2019

All, Bluebeam 3 Comments

Today’s Bluebeam® Revu® offers much more than PDF editing and drawing markups. It’s been through significant upgrades since it was released in 2002. Bluebeam Revu 2019 is a must-have collaboration tool for all members of the design and construction team. Straight from the Applied Software technical Bluebeam experts, following are minimum and recommended requirements when using Bluebeam Revu with office documents and construction project documents.

Minimum Requirements:

When using Revu with typical office documents.

  • Display: 1024 x 768
    • A display driver supporting OpenGL® 3.0 or above is required to display 360° photos.
    • A display driver supporting either OpenGL® 3.2 (or above) or OpenGL® ES 3.0 (or above) is required.
  • Processor
    • Desktops and laptops: 1 GHz processor or equivalent (recommended, see below)
    • Tablets: Intel® i3 processor or equivalent
    • Revu currently does not support ARM processors (Advanced RISC Machines) like those found in the Microsoft® Surface Pro X.
  • RAM
    • 4 GB (32-bit Windows)
    • 8 GB (64-bit Windows)
  • Hard disk
    • At least 5 GB of available space may be required

Recommended Requirements:

When working with large drawing sets (for example, construction project bid sets) in which the PDFs may contain hundreds of large format drawings, it is recommended that workstations have adequate memory and processor resources.

  • Display: 1024 x 768 or better
    • A display driver supporting OpenGL 3.0 or above is required to display 360° photos.
    • A display driver supporting either OpenGL 3.2 (or above) or OpenGL ES 3.0 (or above) is required.
  • Processor
    • Desktops and laptops: Intel i5 Dual Core or better processor
    • Tablets: Intel i3 processor or better
    • Revu currently does not support ARM processors, like those found in the Surface Pro X.
  • RAM
    • 8 GB (64-bit Windows)
  • Hard disk
    • At least 5 GB of available space may be required.

Note on using Revu for OCR:

OCR (optical character recognition) is included with the 64-bit version of Revu eXtreme. OCR will not work in 32-bit Revu.

Using Bluebeam Revu will streamline your work processes, enhance collaboration and make your workday a whole new experience. You’ll discover Revu is a lot more than a pdf editor and more powerful than you might imagine.

  1. Can you suggest a few laptop options that are at or above the recommended requirements?

    1. Hi Charles, technology changes so fast that anything I recommend today may be different in the near future. Therefore, I can’t recommend any specific hardware.

      However, I typically use the specs listed for “recommended requirements” as my “minimum” requirement because when you get use to a computer, you always want something faster the next month!
      Thank you for your question.
      Mark
