Is there a way for me to produce a complete set of plans (i.e. drafting of the Structural, Plumbing and Electrical Plans) for the current project I am doing in Revit Architecture 2009? Or do I just have to draft and produce the aforementioned plans in autocad? Any work around in Revit Architecture? Thanks.......

We don't have a clue as to what your resources are or how complicated your MEP is but if I had my choice, I would do it all in REVIT.

Sir WWHub, what I'm driving at regarding my query as to the production of a complete set of plans is the the drafting of the Structural, Electrical and Sanitary or Plumbing plans of the project I'm doing right now. I have completed the Architectural plans of the project using REVIT Architecture 2009 and I want to do the 2D drafting of the Structural, Electrical and Sanitary plans of my project, using REVIT Architecture. Is there a way I could do these engineering drafting works by way of REVIT Architecture? Please advise.....Thanks.....

We've modelled Structural, & MEP directly in Revit Architecture before the other platforms were available and whilst achievable its a bit of stuffing around.  If you are only 2D detailing MEP stuff then Revit is going to be more appropriate than autocad.  Revit can achieve most of what AutoCAD can in 2d detailing, if not all...

Thanks for the advice Mr. Spot. Does it mean that in the preparation of the MEP plans, I have to create different new projects using the same floor plan, this time without the architectural features, and draw 2D lines, using line pattern and line style, to represent rebar formations for the structural design, piping layout and electrical symbols for the plumbing and electrical symbols for the electrical and plumbing designs?

Or do I just have to duplicate a view of a floor plan where I would draw 2D lines to represent rebar formations or piping layout? Thanks for bearing with me.

If co-ordination is going to be of concern on the scale of the project then you should be modelling it all as it will help you in the long term trying to do manual co-ordination. 

But yes, the latter option, keep it all in the one file and duplicate views/adjust visibility to create discipline specific views and draft the additional information relevant to MEP and Structural detailing with detail components, detail lines, symbols & text/tags.
