Print multiple pages using PDF from REVIT 2008

Thank goodness!

Finally Revit 2008 can print to multipage PDF without having to use DWF first.

I use Adobe PDF for creating my PDF documents. My clients all want their drawings in this format, and not in DWF.

Previously I would print my multi-page drawings to DWF and then print from DWF to PDF to create multi-page drawings from Revit.

Now Revit can print straight to multi page PDF's.
  1. Select PDF as your printer.
  2. Use "Settings" to setup the correct page size and scale.
  3. Under "print range" select "selected views / sheets", then select the views/ sheets you want to print. I am assuming you wish to print more than one drawing sheet!
  4. Under "file" select "combine multiple selected views / sheets into a single file"
  5. select the big "OK" to print
  6. You will then be prompted for a file name and file location. Set this to suit you, and away you go... multi-page PDF.

Thanks to the Revit team for setting this up!
