Scale Ruler in Nomad

Recommended Posts

We're looking at getting an iPad for the office to take to site to do markups etc, rather than a big bundle of drawings and we're currently borrowing one to test how this could work.


Nomad is great for this, but since we would be marking up PDFs (the construction set issued to the contractor) - it would be really handy to be able to use the ruler tool as a scale ruler, changing the scale based on the drawing to then extract measurements, rather than measuring at 1:1 and trying to work it out. 


Is this possible in the current Nomad app or should this be in the wishlist section?

I started using my ipad for construction administration and site analysis this summer.  Bluebeam Revu for the ipad is what you are looking for, it's perfect for the job.  I converted all my technicians to it as well.  The staff actually now prefers taking redlines via PDF and respond to RFIs in a completely digital workflow.
