How do I use the *. Pcp, after you export a file in *. Dwg from Revit.
thanks

Andrea

Hi. When you export a cad file, you will get a pcp file relevant to that exported file. In Autocad, go to the application menu, manage plot styles, create a new ctb file, you can start from scratch or choose existing pcp file, choose existing, use the pcp file you got, and that gives you a ctb file to use for printing your exported drawings.
