Alistair Michener founded Drawboard in 2012 whilst working as an engineer. He and his colleagues were struggling with time-consuming markup methods, master sheets, and check-in check-out workflows on large projects. There was no digital solution that paired the benefits of technology with the familiarity of pen and paper. Drawboard was founded with the goal to bring reliable markup workflows into the 21st century.
Drawboard's premiere markup collaboration platform is Bullclip, and Drawboard's original flagship product Drawboard PDF has amassed the status of one of the most downloaded engineering apps on the Windows Store.
We're always looking for new members of the team. If you'd like to be a part of the team changing the face of the architecture, engineering and construction industry, get in contact.
Drawboard PDF was Drawboard's first product, and is the top Windows 10 PDF application on the Microsoft Store. We designed Drawboard PDF to make on-the-go PDF markup as intuitive as possible.
Read, redline and mark up your PDFs with the power of digital ink and an easy to use interface. Whether you're at the office, on the road or at home, PDF annotation is finally as easy as it should be.
Welcome to getting things done.
Drawboard PDF is available on the Microsoft Store with a 3 day trial.
Bullclip is a collaborative PDF review platform for architecture and design engineering projects.
Purpose-built for the multi-disciplinary, high-touch AEC project environment, Bullclip facilitates design review by making communication (markups, dicussion and issues) easy for everyone on a project.
It is no secret that even with the increasing selection of document management and PDF markup tools available, AEC workers still find themselves printing out drawings, reports, emails and photos to review and add their own notes and sketches. As a result, workers continue to wear the sustainability costs of printing and version control issues.
We attribute this problem to current technological solutions making communication more difficult for all parties, rather than easier.
By marking up in a live environment, discussing changes and closing out issues on the drawing-level, Bullclip makes communicating design changes as easy as possible.
Bullclip uses the same PDF ink technology perfected in Drawboard PDF for real-time markups, adding document management, discussion and issue management. Bullclip is also available on iOS and in any modern web browser.
Bullclip enables all users on a project to shift their paper-based document review, markup and sharing habits to a digital platform with no fuss.
Bullclip is available as a subscription with a free 30 day trial.
