In our previous post, Complementing CAD, the architect had dotted lines to display the path of travel. So what if you need something more elaborate? Bluebeam Revu has many line styles but did you know you can create your own?
Line Styles for paths, roadways, pipelines, fencing, railways, boundaries and borders are often used in illustrations and appear on construction plans. Custom line styles can be applied to Arrow, Ellipse, Line, Polyline, Rectangle, Polygon and Cloud markups. Use the custom Line Style editor to make your own custom line styles.
Custom line styles can be created using dashes, text, spaces, dots and vector graphics literally providing you with the option to create any shape or size. The custom Line Style editor gives you the ability to have multiple lines with varying characteristics that’s great for producing road patterns and other complex designs. Here’s a Bluebeam video on how to make your own line styles and share them with your peers.
Note: You can apply limited styles to the Dimension tool as well.
What unique line styles have you created? Email me a few you’re proud of and I’ll append them to this post (with a kudos to you and your firm)!
