Printing issue in vector mode

Hi, I'm using Revit MEP 2013 (Win 7 64 bits - Quadro 5000K) and whenever I try to print, if I use vector mode instead of raster, I have issue (please see sample) in my prints when I use the "draw the hidden MEP lines" option. With raster mode, the ducts are correct but the prints are too blury. I'm trying to have correct drawings with quality prints. Any quick help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

If you print to PDF do you get the same of different, or correct results?

Is this happening in all projects or just one?

If one, was the file upgraded from 2012?

 

Thanks for posting.

Hi, 

First, thank you for your anser.

The problem happens anytime I print (PDF or Plotter) in all my projects.

My template was upgraded from 2012, so I thing this might be the solution

to my problem, I will try with a new template.

 

Regards,

Hi,

 

Well, I tried with a revit 2013 template and I came to the same result.

But after all I found the solution. My issue is due to the Rise/Drop duct symbols:

without the drawing is ok:

without.png

But as soon as I insert any Rise/ Drop dutc symbol it is wrong:

with.png

So I would like to know if those symbols are editable ? and if yes where can I find them.

Regards.
