    Plotting in Revit

    Hello,

    I just started using revit; and I have a (big) problem. The project is almost finished, and I want to plot it.
    First I wanted to export it to DWG, and plot it with autocad. BUT ALL THE COLORS CHANGE.
    The Layers are not really a problem, but also the colors of regions I made are changed. I lose a lot of time by changing them again!

    Then I installed PDF creator, so I can make a PDF in Revit. But there is a problem with the scale.
    Everything needs to be scale 1:50 but how??

    Hope someone can help me! Running out of time..

    Thanks a lot!

    Welcome to the Forum TeresaS.

    If all your views are set to 1:50, and placed on sheets - All you need to do is to pick "Scale = 100%" when printing... If that┤s not the case, please provide some more info

    Edit: You should also read this thread

    Munkholm is correct. Plotting from Revit is much more simple compaird to AutoCAD. Simply verify your plot scale (bottom left corner of your drafting space) then drag and drop that view onto a sheet.

    In the plotting window click Setup then under the Zoom section make sure it is set to 100% This setting will ensure that your drawing will print at 1:50.

    When plotting the PDF make sure that your settings do not scale the drawing.

    Hii, Ok; problem is almost solved. I'm just but in trouble with the paper placement. Format is A1, and the drawing needs to be in the left corner (above), because I wanna insert a picture (hope this is possible?) and make a textbox for name,...

    It's easier to create a titleblock with the name, project name...etc. as labels.

    in the print setup in revit (the same windows where you set your scale and paper size) there is a paper placement. do some trial and error to get the document to offset where you want it.
