Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Plotting and creating a PDF, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
Printing from Revit is actually very similar to printing in other Windows programs.…The most common way to print is to just generate paper output from a traditional…printer or plotter. You can also do digital output to PDF files.…That would happen in the print dialogue as well.…Now I should mention that PDF is not built into Revit.…So if you want to generate PDF's you actually have to have a PDF plotter.…You could have Acrobat or Bluebeam, but you have to have that installed on your…system first. So I'm in a file here called Plotting and…I'm looking at the A 101 floor plan sheet and you know if I just kind of zoom in a…little bit, we've got a nice title block here.…
And you can see that it's just a typical floor plan, like so.…Maybe I'm ready to print out a progress set and send it off to a recipient.…So I'm going to go to the big R here in the application menu.…Highlight the Print button. And there's actually three options here.…Now, Print Preview I think is pretty self explanatory.…That would just do an on screen preview before you click OK and print.…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
Chapter 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
