Bluebeam Community Forum Has Closed

Announced on the Bluebeam user Forum website on February 15, 2017, the Bluebeam User Forum has closed to make room for better ways to serve the Bluebeam community in the future. The Bluebeam Community Forum had a 7-year run full of good questions, answers, tips and tricks. We’re sad to see it go, but excited to see the Bluebeam Support ecosystem grow in new ways.

The Bluebeam User Forum will remain available for search, but not to create posts or reply to posts. Based on the timing of the closure (3 weeks before the release of Revu 2017) there will be no references to Revu version 2017 which was released on March 7, 2017.

There remain multiple resources for technical help with Bluebeam Revu

Bluebeam User Groups and Academic Resources:

  • Join a Bluebeam User Group to connect with other AEC professionals. User groups are currently in multiple cities, with more coming.

    In response to the closed Community Forum, we have created an independent user forum for Revu at http://www.revuhelp.com. Free to join and no advertising.

      Thanks Steve. Over time, this looks to be a good resource for the Bluebeam Software Community.

        Yes – I used the Bluebeam Community Forum a great deal. I was disappointed when it closed and looked for another forum – but found none. So I decided to not lament the loss and instead be proactive and create a new help source. The trick now is getting it populated with users! 🙂

        A little over a year later and we now have close to 300 posts by over 100 members.

          Keep up the good work Steve……that’s great news.

    A follow up – it seems that Bluebeam has now COMPLETELY removed the old community forums so they can’t be accessed AT ALL. I happened to do a Google search for an issue I was having and Google returned about a dozen links to help – all in the old community forum. All links lead to this page: https://support.bluebeam.com/forum-notice/. I think it’s a shame that years of thousands of users helping user is just “gone”.

      Hi Steve – Can you update some of the growth metrics for this forum? It appears that it has seen some steady growth since you started it.
