Client markup tool- does one exist??

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have a client that wants to be able to read our drawing files so i have pointed then towards the free VW Viewer. He has said that this is great in principle but he wants to be able to do annotations / markups on top of the drawings and send them back to us. I'm not aware a of a way for them to do this at the moment?? Is this possible through the free viewer which i understand is unable to save changes.

Export PDFs and have them mark them up is the best option unless they want to buy a full copy of VW. Fundamentals would be sufficient if all they want to do is markup and not to change the PIOs you use.

@DuncB I agree with @Pat Stanford

PDF markup is great.  I don't have to worry about my client's tech preferences, they can use what suits their needs.  I get a PDF back that can easily import back to VWX.  If they need a suggestion for PDF markup, Bluebeam is pretty good if they want to go deep into the markup process, measure, etc.  If they are just throwing down notes and scribbles, hard to beat marking up on an Ipad w/ their pencil in the native app.  Lots of clean options.
