With RapidBid, most of the steps we mentioned above are either removed or dramatically cut down. For a start, there’s no need to deal with physical stationery or paper printouts. All you need is your computer screen, mouse and keyboard to complete the entire process.
Opening the files you require is simpler, because the software lets you quickly preview each drawing from a list or folder full of different plans. Only some of these will be relevant for insulation, so you can just click these ones and head to the next step within a few seconds.
When you have a suitable drawing open, the intuitive take-off tools and view controls make it easy to move around a drawing and find everything you need to. Measurements can be taken at the click of a mouse, including areas and volumes. Colour-coded layers can be created, hidden or highlighted to help you focus on what you’re working on.
With a range of powerful additional tools, you’ll find it easy to manipulate and analyse your drawings in record time. When you’re done, all the numbers will be pulled through to your estimate sheet. This method is a major shortcut compared to doing everything manually.
