Image quality

I am "rendering" hidden line images in Revit for a presentation. I cannot use the Rendering tools to render the model in hidden line (without materials), so I simply turn on shadows and export the image. When I do this, the image comes out very jagged and bitmapped looking. I have tried to increase the file size and change from a jpeg to a tiff. I am also surprised that Revit would have a maximum file size for exporting. I have not run across that issue in other modelers (Triforma, VIZ). Has anyone come across a solution for this?

Actually Viz does have a file size limit with the default rendering image of
32768 px x 32768 px, so this is not as uncommon as you might think. If you
were really rendering you could get a higher resolution, however what you
are really doing is exporting a screen capture.

If you want more control over image resolution and size - don't export an
image - print to a file. You can print to PDF at virtually any size and
resolution you like and then open that in Photoshop for editing. I do this
all the time and the results area great. You can also print to many other
file formats. You can print to a generic postscript printer which may give
you an *.eps for Photoshop. There are also drivers that will print to Jpeg
or TIFF. But I've had the best luck with going to pdf.

Bluebeam PDF writer will also produce JPGs and TIFs
