    PDF's into Revit?

    I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but has anyone had any success getting PDFs into Revit? Currently I can insert the PDF into Autocad and save it and then link it into Revit, but is this the only way?

    Print (or convert) the PDF to an image, and link the image into Revit.

      You mean a jpeg file? do you think that is the best way to model over top of a PDF in the revit environment

        Ask the *native files* from the creator! Don't accept pdf ( baseline attitude)..

          All the time. I have the PDF open on one screen and model everything properly on the other screen.

            Yes, a jpg. Have you tried bringing a PDF into Revit via AutoCAD? It isn't possible. There is no way to bring a PDF in. An image is your only option. But you said you were successful? I'm interested in seeing how you pulled this off. Linking PDFs into Revit is on the Autodesk Roadmap, so maybe you'll see that capability in version 2020 or 2021.

            But as far as modeling, I'd do like the other posters and use the PDF side by side as a visual reference and not model over top of it.

              print it to paper, saves energy.

                Open in Map and convert to a native DWG (as long as the PDF is not an image)...

                PDF to Revit is now on the Revit Roadmap.

                  Since AutoCAD 2017 was released there is a function where you can insert the PDF into Autocad and it converts it into CAD elements, if it was drawn with a similar program. Then you just save the .dwg and link it into revit as you would with any normal .dwg.

                    I don't even trust my own AutoCAD drafting to be precise enough to be used in Revit let alone something converted several times. That's just asking for that .000000001" error making it impossible to dimension anything.
