Revit Architecture can't create PDF documents without an external PDF plotter, such as Adobe Acrobat. Assuming you have a plotter, Revit's PDF options menus are relatively self-explanatory, but one of their key features is that you can decide exactly what type of content to include or not include on a particular sheet in the outputted PDF. This online video provides a detailed example of how to plot and create a PDF with Revit Architecture 2015.
…Printing from Revit is 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 PDFs, 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 A101 floor plan sheet.…And, you know, if I just kind of zoom in…a little bit, we've got our 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, 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: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
