Raster print quality

I'm having issues with print quality on certain drawings, which is a shame as print quality generally exceeds that of AutoCAD Architecture.


The issue I have is with a SHADED and shadowed elevation drawing.  When I go to print to PDF it insists line removal is done using raster rather than vector processing.  This leads to a poor quality PDF both on screen and printed.


I accept that automatically generated shadows may make this necessary but with then turned off, I don't.


If I print a coloured plan, say a room or area drawing with automatically generated colours, it's quite happy to plot it using vector processing.  I DO NOT see any difference between this and a shaded elevation without shadows!  Should anyone from Autodesk read this please justify.


For anyone else reading this do you have a way of improving the look of raster processed output?
