DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A REVIT SETTING FOR PLOTTER RESOLUTION? WHEN I GO TO PLOT TO A PLOTTER REVIT SLOWS DOWN, NOT FREEZE BUT IT TAKES A MINUTE OF TWO TO GENERATE A PREVIEW AND ANOTHER MINUTE OR TWO TO SEND THE JOB TO THE PLOTTER. WHEN I GO TO PLOT TO ANY PRINTER OTHER THAN THE PLOTTER IT PRINTS FINE. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT THEIR IS A SETTING FOR PLOTTER RESOLUTION THAT I CAN CHANGE THAT MIGHT BE THE REASON FOR THE PROBLEM THAT I AM EXPERIANCING. IF ANYONE KNOWS IF THIS IS THE PROBLEM OR IF ANYONE KNOWS WHAT THE PROBLEM MIGHT BE PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

Revit simply uses the Windows operating system to accomplish printing as any modern program should. All printer settings are controlled by Windows. That said printing from Revit can be slower than what you are used to from some programs, but then again you are probably sending a ton more information such as raster graphics including color. Your fastest way to print out of Revit is to stick to vector based printing. HTH Tom

THE REASON I ASK IS WE JUST MOVED INTO A NEW OFFICE AND I JUST STARTED USING REVIT, NOW A MONTH OR SO AGO BEFORE WE WERE HOOKED UP TO OUR SERVER REVIT PRINTED FINE. NOW WHEN I GOT TO PRINT IT SEEMS TO GET JAMMED UP, REGARDLESS OF FILE SIZE AND HOW MUCH DETAIL IS IN THE DRAWING. THE GUY WHO SET UP ARE NETWORK IS TELLING ME THAT ITS A PROBLEM WITH REVIT WHICH I HIGHLY DOUBT IS THE ISSUE. HE WAS THE ONE WHO HAD TOLD ME IT MIGHT BE THE PLOTTER RESOLUTION. I HONESTLY THINK THAT ITS SOME KIND OF SETTINGS ON THE SERVER THAT NEED TO BE CHANGED BUT I DONT KNOW MUCH ABOUT SETTING UP THAT STUFF. WE HAVE SOMEONE COMING NEXT WEEK TO TROUBLE SHOOT FOR US. THIS MIGHT BE A DUMB QUESTION BUT IN THE REPLY TO MY POSTING I WAS TOLD TO STICK TO VECTOR BASED PRINTING, WHAT IS VECTOR BASED PRINTING?
