PDFBilt Connect automatically splits and links multi-sheet construction PDF documents stored in Autodesk® Construction Cloud and then returns the split and linked document to the ACC

General Usage Instructions

Once the construction documents are released as multi-sheet PDF documents, Kenesto's PDFBilt Connector for ACC can be used to split, automatically rename, and link the component sheets including the call-outs and then the document can be saved either as a bound set or in a directory of the component sheets. As the project progresses and quotations, RFIs and markups are received from subcontractors, these marked up sheets can be slip sheeted into the correct location automatically by Kenesto's PDFBilt Connector. PDFBilt also allows teams to markup and create issue reports in a web environment which in turn can be uploaded to the ACC. Other features include automatic table extraction from PDF documents to Excel and in-field annotation on phones and tablets.

Bluebeam users who are familiar with multi-step (OCR, label, split, link) semi-manual workflows will find speed improvement of 3-5X and will find that the processing in Kenesto is fully automatic.
