Archtoolbox Bluebeam Tools has been discontinued and is no longer available. HOWEVER, we have heard from many of our readers that they really want us to provide them again. If that is you, please send us a message and we'll let you know if we decide to make them available again. Your messages will help convince us, so please send them along if you want the tools (and maybe even some other goodies).
In the meantime, existing customers can contact us through the contact form.
Bluebeam Revu has become the premier PDF editor for the AEC industry. Unfortunately, most of the Bluebeam Tool Sets that come with the program were designed with contractors in mind. We are changing that. This package includes a series of tool sets, line styles, hatch patterns, and templates that can be added to an installed version of Bluebeam Revu. These are add-ons and require a working copy of Bluebeam Revu.
These tools are used by design professionals all around the world, including at some major firms like Leo A. Daly, Parsons, Gray Construction, and HDR.
Bluebeam Tool Sets and Templates for Architects
The tools in this set were developed by architects to meet our needs while redlining documents and reviewing construction submittals. Now you can have them without having to develop them yourself. When you purchase using the link to the right, you will be able to instantly download the tools and you'll be using them in minutes!
A Huge Time Saver
We developed these tools over the course of a few years while using Bluebeam Revu during the design phases and in the field during Construction Administration. We have spent many, many hours perfecting these tools so that you don't have to waste your time.

Take a Video Tour of our Bluebeam Tools Add-Ons
Please note that this video is from an earlier version of our tools so it doesn't have all the symbols that are available in this new version, but you will get a sense of how easy the tools are to use.
We are confident you will save many hours testing and refining your own custom tools even if you only use a couple of ours. However, we will send you a refund if you have trouble installing them or can't get them to work for you. Just send us an email or reply to your order confirmation email within 30 days and we'll promptly refund your money.
Frequently Asked Questions
Am I downloading a PDF editor?
No. You are downloading a set of add-ons that can be installed only with a full working copy of Bluebeam Revu. You can purchase a copy of the Bluebeam Revu PDF editor from bluebeam.com.
What are the System Requirements?
You need a working copy of Bluebeam Revu, which can be installed on a Windows PC or an iPad. You can purchase a copy of the Bluebeam Revu PDF editor from bluebeam.com.
Do the tools work on the Mac version of Bluebeam?
Unfortunately, only part of the tools work on the Macintosh version of Bluebeam due to limitations of the Bluebeam software. The markup, symbols, templates, and stamps work on a Mac. However, the linetypes, hatches, and scaleable tools don't work since Bluebeam for Mac doesn't allow custom linetypes or hatches and doesn't have the scaleable tools feature.
