HI ALL
I am a relativly new revit user and not being a computer whiz kid find the program brilliant.
My local council is phasing in council da lodgements to be in pdf format on a cd rom
There are many formats that revit files can be saved in,but I cannot find a pdf.
Will i have to buy an add on like bluebeam,or arn,t I looking hard enough.

Hey Robert

You're lucky - I hate the amount of paper we have to waste with most councils - nowadays the first thing many councils do is scan your documents back into their system!!

PDF is considered a print format in Revit, so if you have any PDF drivers installed on your machine, you will find them listed with other printers inside the print command.

Revit ships with a PDF driver that you can installed, but it does have some problems. If you have the full version of Acrobat then you will find that the drivers are already there, otherwise one of the best free choices is PDF995. You can jump on the net and do a search for pdf which should bring up at least half a dozen free print drivers.

Cheers,
Wesley
