    Export PDF

    Hi guys, whenever I export to PDF alot of the lines seem quiet blurry, ive set it to raster processing and set the rasters to presentation, and replaced half tones with thin lines but the PDF's still seem quiet blurry and unprofessional, any idea whats wrong?

    Try adjusting the quality directly on the pdf driver that you're using. You can turn up the quality settings there as well as on the print dialog.

      Don't use Raster... set it to Vector and it will not be blurry at all. And it will make smaller PDF files.

        Only problem with that is that it won't work with shadows, rendered views, jpg's, and so on... Revit will automatically use raster in those cases.

          In those cases... wouldnt it be better to export to a Image file so you have better controls over the rendering? PDF isnt really something that you use for awesome pictures...

            Nope, but I always use shadows in elevation (is required by building code) and often a jpg underlay for situation / site.
            And a render / realistic 3D doesn't need to be extremely topnotch if it's going at a 10x20cm picture on a large sheet...

              Well in that case you are screwed with raster printing to PDF.... servids solution would be your best bet.

                I know, I already applied that one a long time ago... Haven't had any problems with it for years (besides the fact that it needs way more RAM to print)
                O, and setting your lineweights to thin lines for surface lines is also a good option. Works wonders...
