  • In the real world, most of us still use 2D CAD software for initial design and layout. Model-based 3D drafting sounds great in theory, but the reality is that it’s not very convenient to use for the endless changes, updates, and variations that we go through in conceptual and preliminary design. Despite what top-selling CAD systems are trying to force us to do, we can’t work in just 3D. It isn’t financially viable. We all need both 2D & 3D systems, but let me ask you this: are you paying recurring annual subscriptions for both your 2D CAD system and your 3D BIM software? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could work in one system, using one file, for both methods? How cool would it be to just take your 2D layouts and quickly convert them into fully-functional 3D BIM designs that have all industry-leading features, all within one program? BricsCAD BIM is here to help, with an affordable, perpetually-licensed single program that will handle all your basic 2D and advanced 3D/BIM modeling needs. Join us to see how simple it is to take a 2D layout and convert it to a fully developed 3D BIM model inside of BricsCAD BIM, the fastest growing CAD system in the world today.

  • Working with design documents means signing and sealing hundreds of plans on a regular basis. Doing it by hand is exhausting, and signing a single set, then scanning for copies can cause a severe loss of resolution on your drawings. That doesn’t even take into account the time and expense of the manual processes many of us still use. With Bluebeam Revu, you can apply your own unique, secure, digital signature and seal to any file – or to multiple files – in just a few seconds, and maintain the detailed resolution of your design documents.

  • Let’s face it, Excel is the workhorse of the estimating world. We all use it to finalize calculations and easily change costing information for every project. The problem is, Excel works alone and it doesn’t have any connection to your visual construction documents . . . or does it? With Bluebeam Revu you can connect Excel right to your PDF plans and as you run takeoffs in Revu, every value can be dynamically linked to your own, custom, Excel spreadsheets so that areas, volumes, counts, etc. are updated in real time.

  • Do you spend hours combing thru plans, manually counting and checking off electrical outlets, sprinkler heads, or door types? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a system that would perform those counts for you, directly on your PDF plans, and maybe even keep track of them when changes are made? With Bluebeam Revu, you can do that and more. Count existing symbols in your plans to get running totals, perform automatic counts, even place your own custom markers on symbols you’ve already counted, all with a click of the mouse. Stop wasting days per project on this simple task and let Bluebeam Revu handle it, with far greater accuracy, in just minutes.

  • Why is Bluebeam Revu such an important tool for every construction and design firm? Because it gives you the ability to measure/calculate/control the size, length, area, volume, etc. of every object inside of your PDF construction documents in seconds. There is no better tool than Revu for automatically measuring pipes/duct runs, area and perimeter calculations for rooms, or even site stripping volumes on a site plan. Whatever type of work you do, Bluebeam Revu can handle all your estimating, review, and design information needs. Revu lets you use standard PDF files to handle all these functions. Want to see how it works? Join ZenTek Consultants, a Premiere Bluebeam Partner, for this free webinar that will show you how this amazing functionality works and how it’s being used by leading AEC firms around the world.

  • BricsCAD is a cutting-edge design system with regular upgrades to its 2D CAD system. It has gone beyond what other industry-leading packages can do by integrating native 3D modeling, BIM, and 2D CAD into a single system that works within a DWG file. Join ZenTek Consultants for this FREE webinar and see how BricsCAD can: • Create dozens of blocks from similar linework in one step • Copy and move doors, windows, etc. to new locations using same offset spacing as original • Create Parametric blocks that can be re-sized individually, using pre-set controls • One “head-up” tool that delivers the commands you need for any item you select on screen • Move, stretch, rotate, or mirror any object, simply by clicking it. • Change layer, color, line type, and properties of an object by clicking on it • Control layering, text, dimension, leader styles and even Xrefs from one dialog • Keep using all the same tools and commands you use today BricsCAD uses all the tools, functions, and standards you’ve developed in your current CAD system and it works in the native DWG file format so there’s nothing new for your staff to learn. BricsCAD licenses cost less than half of what you’re paying today, and they’re sold as “perpetual licenses” meaning you can use them forever and only upgrade when you feel the new tools warrant it. If you are paying recurring annual subscriptions for both your CAD/BIM systems and getting minimal returns, or your annual “upgrades” are little more than interface and color updates with no real productivity improvements, join us to learn more about BricsCAD.

  • BIM technology has changed the way we visualize and work with construction information. 3D models give everyone the true design intent, and the detailed visual information needed to ensure proper installation of all aspects of a construction project. The problem, of course, is the sheer size of 3D BIM models and the excessive cost of having Revit on every laptop and tablet in your organization. Wouldn’t it be great if you could just print the 3D Model, and all the related construction documents, into one reasonably-sized PDF file that everyone could access? Well, wish no more – Bluebeam Revu can do exactly that! Bluebeam plugs directly into your existing Revit system and lets you print 3D models that can be rotated, panned, and controlled from any direction, in real-time, right inside your PDF. Imagine having the full Revit model and the construction drawings at your field staff’s fingertips, right at the point of installation.

  • The true benefit of Microsoft Teams, which most people don’t realize, is that it lets you do almost all of your work in one single interface. Don’t waste time finding icons, launching programs, then browsing the network time and again to open the files you need. With Teams, you simply click on the files you’ve already organized inside your Team and you can view, work on, even co-author and discuss them right through Teams itself! Teams allows you to open and edit Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files natively, or opt to work with them in a browser off your desktop app. Other files, like PDF and DWG, can be viewed from inside Teams for quick reference, and easily downloaded locally for editing in your desktop application. All that, and you can even chat with other Team members about the document you’re editing and keep a full record of that chat in the main conversation panel. Join us to see how Teams is much more than a replacement for Skype - it’s a full-fledged powerhouse program that will optimize your daily workflow.

  • In the construction world, there’s nothing more difficult or time-consuming than data sharing and collaboration. Finding a way to host all your documents, track changes, establish workflows and receive automatic notifications can seem an almost impossible task. The options always seem to be flat file sharing sites that don’t suffice, or complex enterprise systems that cost a mass percentage of your gross revenue each year! Let us introduce you to Bricsys 24/7, a cloud-based Common Data Environment (CDE) designed for real world construction projects. 24/7 lets you store files and give access to an unlimited number of users and projects, even if they don’t own the software. You can store files of any type in the 24/7 system and it comes with 70+ file viewers built-in, so you can preview your data on the fly using most mobile devices. You can markup, annotate, track changes, and even keep/access older versions of all your files right through your browser. Bricsys 24/7 even includes an automated workflow system, that lets you move RFIs and assign tasks through approval processes that you build to your needs, with a simple drag/drop interface. Want to know more? Join ZenTek Consultants, your dedicated Bricsys Partner, for a free, one-hour, webinar. We’ll show you how 24/7 can simplify the very nature of how you work on a daily basis; reducing costs, saving time and taking back control of your projects.

  • One of the biggest challenges in Design Review and Estimating is identifying changes on plans and verifying which systems are affected by them. We spend hours on light tables, or bouncing back and forth between open files, hoping we don’t miss anything. Bluebeam Revu changes that. Revu will automatically compare different versions of a file and bubble/highlight every area that’s been modified or is different for you.
