You'll have to download a pdf generator to basically act as a printer.

Are you serious? I have to download/install another program to print a PDF from Revit.

Autocad to PDf worked so well before!

Can Autodesk Design Review open/view Revit files?

Hi. sorry about the other empty post. Actually you can print directly from Revit to PDF similar to what you would do with autocad. You do need a pdf creation program however installed on your computer. I have the abobe acrobat pro, some have the cutepdf, and so on. You can easily install one free online and use it.

You can also print to design review, and compile (similar to PDF) into one file or multiple files.

 

Regards.

Parallels Desktop 9 now includes a Print to PDF (Mac Desktop) printer that is added to the Virtual Windows Machine by default IF "Add all Mac printers" in Configure->Hardware->Print is selected.

 

When you print from Revit it saves it to the mac desktop. COOL.

Yes basilmir but you will not be able to create a custom Architectural sheet, ie. Arch D 24x36. You are only limited to the standard paper sizes.
