PlanGrid, touted as "the fastest blueprint viewer" available, is one of the most mature apps for viewing, amending and discussing construction drawings on a collaborative cloud-based platform. This week they launched PlanGrid for Education, allowing students full and uninhibited access to every feature of the app free of charge. According to the company, they currently have "40,000 blueprints being uploaded to PlanGrid daily and over 9 million blueprints stored digitally", making the platform one of the fastest growing in its market.
PlanGrid for Education is available to students and instructors as of June 2014: "to sign up, students and teachers should sign up for a basic account using their .edu email address and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting the upgrade."
