Complete On-Screen Take-Offs using Your Digital Prints

TurboBid's On-Screen Take-Off interface allows you to quickly complete your take-off by using digital prints that you view on your computer screen. You can load scanned plans as well as import directly from .TIF, .PDF - Adobe, .DXF, .DWF, .DWG - AutoCAD, .PLN - Dodge Plan files, .JPG, and more.  You can also download plans directly from many online plan rooms. You can even use a digital camera to take a picture of your blueprints.

TurboBid's take-off screen is seamlessly linked to Planswift's on-screen take-off software program. Simply click on the symbols on your digital print to add the quantity count, or linear measurements, into TurboBid. A red slash mark (/) will be used to mark the symbol just like you would on paper prints. The quantity counts and/or linear measurements are then automatically added into TurboBid's take-off tab.

NOTE: Planswift is not needed to complete take-offs in TurboBid. It is simply an optional tool that can possibly save you the hassle and expense associated with traditional paper prints.

You can add Planswift to TurboBid at any time, now or in the future. If you purchase Planswift through our shopping cart, you will save $200 versus purchasing Planswift directly from Planswift. You may purchase it as the same time as TurboBid or anytime in the future.

You may also use the following optional TurboBid Symbol Library to add symbols to your prints for value engineering or for design build. Each symbol is also available with a red circle around it. These red circled symbols can be used for value engineering to easily identify the symbols that you have added to the blueprint.
