I'm a drafting student at a Community Collage, trying to complete a project in revit. So I ask. Can I past a PDF file into Revit? Or should I redraw the file in view_drafting views? You see, it came from a railing company that doesn’t have BIM files. Atlantis Railings.

If this is possible, is there some way I can take just the drawings and text? Or should I leave the title blocks?   THANK YOU.

you cannot import PDF directly into Revit, but you can convert the pdf to other file format which can be imported to Revit.

Redraw in drafing view, if just 2D line drawing, is a good option for u, being a student you better learn how to use the program while you have the chance.

Thanks…..But out of curiosity what will be those other options? I’m trying to engage in all aspects of the program. At this point, I’m having a little trouble with detailing. That’s why I’m asking about the option’s you mention. So I can load them into my arsenal. Can “dwg., dxf., dgn., sat. and skp.”, be included  in converting from PDF? Will I need special software to accomplish this? Or just  AutoCad? And on detailing, I may have over looked something in the tutorial. Thanks a trillion Mike.

Depend on the PDF, because pdf can be raster image or vector. if the pdf is vector format, you can convert it to dwg or dxf, but if the pdf is raster image, you will need to convert it to jpg or png image format, Revit can import them.

Search on web to see which program suit you, sometime you might can find freeware or demo converting pdf to dxf or jpg format.
