Bluebeam Software, Autodesk enhance AutoCAD file-sharing

October 27, 2004


Autodesk Inc. is working with Bluebeam Software to provide additional file sharing options to designers and engineers that use AutoCAD(R) software. The companies are developing joint solutions that enable AutoCAD users to more easily convert complicated, large-format AutoCAD drawings into Autodesk(R) DWF(TM) (Design Web Format(TM)) digital files.

Bluebeam will enhance its Bluebeam Pushbutton Plus software to allow conversion to DWF, a published format developed by Autodesk for sharing 2D and 3D design and engineering data.

"By working with Bluebeam, Autodesk customers will have access to new DWF solutions, which were created specifically for the CAD industry, making it easier for architects and engineers to create, manage and share their AutoCAD drawings with clients, contractors, coworkers and reprographers," says Tony Peach, director of product marketing for Autodesk Collaboration Services.

"Bluebeam's Pushbutton Plus solution currently gives users the ability to convert their drawings and documents to seven different formats -- it makes sense for us to also include the DWF format," says Richard Lee, President and CEO of Bluebeam Software.

In addition to allowing users to output to DWF, Bluebeam will also be working with AutoCAD to create specialized technology that will enable AutoCAD users to convert large quantities of digital drawings to DWF in a single batch. Bluebeam plans to launch a product that includes DWF capability in the first quarter of 2005.
