Raster Images

Postby Drew » 04 Dec 2008, 17:58

Does anybody know how to save out a raster image?
I have been given a DA model with some nice raster images of plants etc and need to use them in a new project fro the same client.
is there a way to get the raster image out of the exisitng file and into a library so we can use them again?

I do not know the answer but have a possible work around.

Print the images as a PDF or Export the view/sheet as an image, then you can use Photoshop or something else to crop the newly created image down to view only the required image.

I am keen to see if anybody knows the answer...

One way to keep a library of images is to create an .rvt "library" file which contains all the client images.
Simply create a blank file, copy/paste each image into an appropriately named drafting view and keep the file in your library.
Then, when its time to insert an image into a particular view of your project file, just use the command....
"file" -> "insert from file" -> "2D elements", select the named view you want and the image from that view will appear in your project.
Cheers,

Mark, this all makes sense and is good practice for using images multiple times.

But the problem I think we are both having is that we have an image within a revit file that we want to extract and unfortunately we just cannot seem to do it without printing a PDF or doing a screen shot of that image.

You're right Rob, I don't think it is possible.
My suggestion applied to re-using images within Revit only.
