Bluebeam: DYNAMIC FILL

Account Manager - AEC QC , Bluebeam / Laser Scan 3D

When I sometimes look at some architectural projects, I tell myself that as much as the design is beautiful, the various estimators involved in the project must have pulled their hair out. So, let’s look at this wonderful (but still underused) function of Dynamic Filling.

Before starting with this tool, we are going to create a surface with Area Measurements tool which we will call Ground surface and which we will save in the toolbox (it is important for the continuation).

Once our surface has been created, we will finally use Dynamic Fill. To do this, first go to your menu, then in Tools, go to the Measure section and then go to the last Dynamic Fill icon. Or else, type “j” on your keyboard 😊

It will bring up this menu on your screen

Now, let’s take an area that is hard to calculate on our plan like this one for example

Click on the paint bucket   to select it then point with your mouse at the area that must be measured area and keep pressing the right button and you will see like paint pouring into the room

Once the room is filled, we will choose what we want Bluebeam to calculate by choosing our previously created surface to apply it on the painted area

 

Finally, we click on Apply and here we go!
