Session Type



As the General Contractor on a six-story, state-of-the-art office building, we knew we had to evolve our technological approach and project communication workflows. Find out how we utilized Bluebeam Studio Sessions to review, process and approve over 30 steel shop drawing sequences, detailing 130 notches and 1,400 unique penetrations through the structural steel on the project. Learn how we used tools such as 3D PDFs, automatic alerts and comments to manage changes, as well as how we created exhibits with the Navisworks model for visual meeting notes, and tracked issues and assigned responsibility in real time.

In this session learn more about:


  • How to use Studio Sessions to solve coordination issues by creating overlays with Navisworks views.
  • Tips and tricks for using Studio Sessions as a collaboration tool during Shop Drawing
  • How to embed 3D PDFs from Navisworks and Revit
  • Communicating with Studio Sessions using the follower feature and alert tools
