    Well I've decided to push this up and to find a solution, so I think Dynamo is the best bet for me, for now I'm creating a Dynamo Graph which allows me to export all my desired views to a single sheet (see pic), now I'm struggling a little with Dynamo since I've started just a few months ago! so as I'm a rookie with dynamo the graph I've created is not very beautiful but at least it works, problem is that the result is a little bit crappy but at least one can work with those cad drawings to create a single cad, I'll continue to improve the graph to see if I can obtain a more clean DWG.

    Have you considered XRefing the exported Revit views into ACAD? There is a way to insert multiple xrefs simultaneously (CLASSICXREF).

    Hi @Tim123 and thanks, Yes I've considered that too!!, but problem is that nobody here but me knows how to manipulate xrefs, my boss hate xrefs and in general all kind of things she doesn't master at all so x refs are a problem for her and therefore for the team!!, again thank you for your kind reply, best regards

    She hates Xrefs? And she likes working in CAD? Jesus Christ. Give the woman some crayons, so she doesn't hurt herself.

    What about cutting the furniture from a sheet and pasting it on a printed plan?, that's what she do to analyze space requirements!! and I'm not joking!! that's her method to work!! I'm not against old methods and stuff like that but frankly that is a bit Flintstones age!!

    That's my daily basis here, fighting against cad dinosaurs trying to make them understand that Revit and BIM are not their enemies!! and that renders done with Revit + Enscape vs Sketch up + Enscape are relatively the same damn thing!!

    as you can see I'm struggling with very illogical things here, trying to modify Revit to do things that it don't do and so on!!

    Sounds like the kind that put multiple layers of stickybacks on transbond then yelled at the reprographics shops when the blacklines made from sepias weren't perfectly clean.

    Try this method. Export Revit to CAD, then use Autolisp to insert multiple drawing into your AutoCAD. https://www.cadtutor.net/forum/topic...n-one-drawing/

    I've been reading this thread, thinking, "I would not post negative comments about my boss on a public forum that anyone can read without somehow obscuring my identity." You appear to have shared a bunch of information that would make it pretty easy for your manager to recognize who you are, even if you were not using your real name...

    But after reading this comment, I think maybe my fears about your boss finding this thread on a Revit-specific forum are *way* overblown.
