Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Plotting and creating a PDF, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- 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 dialog as well.…Now I should mention that PDF is not built in to 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 Plans sheet,…and if I just kind of zoom in a little bit,…we've got our nice title block here, and you could 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 gonna 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 onscreen preview…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
