    Hello guys:


    is there a way to export all the sheets from a Revit project to a single CAD file?

    Thanks in advance

    Not that I know off. But what do you have in mind, all plans pasted on top of eachother and a layout for each sheet with layers turned on and off?
    I mean even doing it manual (copy/paste stuff from all dwg into 1 file would be a pain in the butt.

    Hi and thank you for your quick answer!, is not my idea is my boss that hates Revit and all the stuff that is produced with!! I was thinking to copy and paste all the DWGs into a single file but she wants to have that in an automated way, so i'm not able to respond to that yet, I guess by copy and paste all the drawings into a single one could be work fine but we have projects with 50 sheets so i guess is time consuming.

    Thank you again

    So that would be 50 sheets copy/pasted into model space all next to each other?
    Just trying to get a feel to where your boss wants to go, to see if I can figure something out that is simple.

    Interesting that she dislikes Revit, but expects it to export all the Revit sheets to 1 AutoCAD file. Maybe here beloved AutoCAD can IMPORT all the dwg in an automated way
    To be honest I think that might be possible with some LISP routine in AutoCAD, but last time I did LISP was about 15 years ago

    Hi again Robin!!

    Yes she loves ACAD and she definitively loves sketch up, my problem is her lack of understanding, for example By using Revit + Enscape to do renders she hates it, but if you model the same building in sketch up + Enscape she says that the render quality is better that the quality on Revit!!

    Actually my problem is that she hates so much Revit that all the stuff I've produced Sucks to her regard, I'm having a very hard time here since all mistakes done by others are my fault even if I'm not aware or even if I'm not included as a drafter for that specific project!

    I've never done lisp!!

    I'm feeling like a retarded here since I'm constantly crashing into a wall.

    Hi Elton and thank you, I've already thought of that the only problem is the legends that we have in our sheets, my initial solution was the classic all into one PDF but apparently she hates that too!!

    I'm sure Dynamo could do everything at the push of a button, including multiple/duplicated legends.

    Knowing what I know about his boss (and no that is not much, but more then enough) she wants to have the titleblocks in the dwg as well, so 50 views in 1 sheet will not cut it.

    Don't know if Dynamo can open a dwg and paste the next dwg sheet in there, seems like something it can not do, but I really don't know.
