Hello,

 I am trying to print 30x42 sheets for a CD set, and when printed in black & white, the resolution comes out poor, grainy actually.  We print to Adobe first, and then print hard copies from .pdf form.  My coworker figured that each time we print from Revit, we print a raster image.  Is there any way to print a vector image?  Please help with any advice!

 Thanks.

In the print setup there is an option for raster or vector printing.

Tim, and whomever else, I see that the option is presented for raster or vector printing, however, choosing vector does not produce a vector image, always.  We were trying to print the drawings with "Shading with Edges" turned out, which we found to always print as a raster.  But, when we switched it to just "Hidden Line," vector was possible.  Unfortunately we lose some of the detail that was showing in the "Shaded..." but we get clearer details in some cases, i.e. electrical fixtures show with more clarity than before, which was the goal.  If there is a happy medium out there, I would love to hear it, but for now, that will have to do.  Thanks.

if you're printing shaded views, your only option is raster printing.  you can however increase the resolution of your pdf.  this will be in your printer options and you should know that it will increase your output file size; quite substantially in some cases.

hi,

you guys need to understand what is raster and what is vector, raster uses pixel and vector uses points.  so when you are printing shading with edges you are using pixel information when you are printing hidden your using endpoint connecting lines.

Sorry but as already posted, shaded can only be raster!  How else do you expect to get a tone?  You can turn of shadded and add fill patterns that are line based byt color fills are all pixel.

R2015  This is an old thread but relevant to what I am experiencing.  

I am finding that if there is any Transparency of model elements (even 100% transparency) then Revit forces to Raster printing.  I wish this wasn't so ... Has anyone found a work-around?
