Introduction  
CadManage  
CodeBook  
Blueprint markets two desktop software tools, that provide significant efficiencies in the generation and, management of drawing files; CadManage and Codebook.

Depending on the nature of the project and the design platforms desired to be utilised, Project Blueprint will offer either solution. Both CadManage ad Codebook are fully integrated with the on-line RoomData system.

CodeBook: A patented desktop computer application and database that allows the designer to work with co-ordinated graphical and textual information, producing schedules, themed graphical views and room data sheets.

Via a joint alliance, Codebook’s range of Architectural desktop tools able to be bundled with Blueprint’s RoomData® product, in order to offer a complete solution for Planners, Architects and Project Managers working on a variety of platforms.
 
Codebook has long offered their ground-breaking range of desktop tools that enables Architects to manage the process of Room Data Sheet generation and manipulation during Schematic design through to Design/Development. The Codebook range of tools are now compatible for use with the AutoCad, MicroStation, Architectural Desktop, mGDS, and REVIT design solutions.
 
In conjunction with Blueprint’s own desktop software and the internet based RoomData® product, the suite of Codebook tools becomes even more powerful, offering many offices working in disparate locations across different design platforms the ability to easily combine their work. The work of a variety of Architects, Services consultants, and Equipment Specialists can now all be combined in the one single on-line database.

CadManage: A desktop tool that automates the generation of datasheets, which list details of building fixtures and components previously manually generated from drawings.

The Desktop based CadManage™ software overlays AutoCAD. It greatly reduces the labour involved in generating building data sheet details, by drawing from a database library of items compiled by Blueprint over the last decade, and incorporating information from an AutoCAD drawing.

Essentially, the application revolves around the concept of 'associating' items. Details of every item, and its properties are captured in relevant databases. Through associating these items within a given space, detailed listings of materials and their relationship can be quickly generated.

On many projects Room Data Sheets are required from the Design Team. Some clients use them to 'Benchmark' projects that follow and other clients use them for Facility Management purposes.

Project Blueprint's RoomData™ System is ideal for that purpose and allows the complete co-ordination of the design team and the Clients FFE specialist. The CadManage™ desktop software was developed to stream line completion of Room Data by direct extraction from Cad files into Project Blueprint's internet based RoomData™ system.

When a database is required for the Building Owners Facility Management System, it becomes necessary to fill out room data sheets from 'As Built' drawings and combine it with FF&E Excel or Access files. This is a labour-intensive activity and most consultants do not have a coordinated system in place.
