Hello,I am using Revit 2009 Architecture within a large practice and one thing that seems to have eluded us all is whether Revit can perform an automatic archiving routine for drawings. By using scripting techniques in AutoCAD we were able by simply typing "archive" of setting of a process that would create a Bound DWG, DWF and PDF of a current drawing. This would be copied to a specific folder and made read only for archiving purposes and for issuing to consultants.The method of creating these three dwg types in Revit 2009 at the moment is long winded and time consuming. I would appreciate all comments.Many Thanks in advance.Revit Nut

Every time you save Revit makes a copy of the entire project with a 000# at the end of the file name. I simply move it to another directory for a complete back-up. Usually I change the name to reflect the submittal date.

OR you could plot all your sheets to PDF or DWF.

We place a copy of the central file in an archive folder at the completion of the phase and we mark it/ name it accordingly.  That takes care of all the drawings.  We also make a single combined PDF of all the drawings and that gives us a single source, quick viewing, visual record.  Two files and you have everything you need.

If you need DWGs, Revit will save them all as bound DWGs in one operation.
