Quick Drawing access anywhere online with PDF download

Having access to the information quickly is important. My experience has been that if people try and assume and guess they usually end up doing a lot more work than initially envisaged.

Having information early means you can plan and anticipate.

Quick Drawing/Document Information using the web

With CAD & BIM the information usually has been created. It is finding the information easily and quickly that is the challenge.
One method is to put the information in a place that is accessible to all, namely the web. It can be password protected so that access is controlled, but it is reachable by all, as long as there is an internet connection.
Revit can export images of drawing sets, these are not particularly detailed when you try and zoom in, but they are like leafing through a book. A quick overview of the information, then you download the specific drawing PDF for more detailed examination. It is easy to put these links up on the web. This is the basic drawing set that already has been created for the project, the data is being structured so that it is quick to access and use.

I use RTV’s Xporter Pro to export the PDF’s as its a really handy tool for normal production as it does Issue Sheet as well and keeps those revision issues under control.
