I do the scale drawings (elevations.plans,sections) export to dwg and put them on autocad to make the lines abit better adn then i print to file as pdf to do on photoshop. i dunno if this doesnt work but it seems logical

although..

when the file is in autocad is perfect scale like it was in revit too. after when i export to pdf while its supposed to be 420x 297mm canvas size it opens as other size:S (not much different but still wrong)

and I do can change it after but when i open other blank paper- bigger lets say- and drag it there its all messed up again and looks bigger than the page which is smaller:S its really weird

i ve been doing autocad to pdf alot of times and it worked great. is it prob that i use revit 2010 and autocad 2007? 

this is kinda frustrating ..has this happened to anyone before? please help cause this is too complicated and couldnt find asnwer

Why do you export to autocad?  "... put them on autocad to make the lines abit better ..."  This doesn't make sense.  You can change all the linework you need in Revit.

WWHub: I mean to fix some problems while its 2D , to cut the specific extend i want etc.

and revit doesnt have pdf plot either.. so I have to make it into dwg anyway..  

the problem is the scale which is wrong.but ill try cute pdf Typhoon and write back what happened with scale:/

You can crop any view in Revit.  Still don't understand why going to cad.

 

We use cutePDF and it works great from Revit.

I can do it directly from revit? how:/ can you explain?

its just my lines come in all different colors and overrides i already explained(like walls openings still show).also some dotted dont appear still.

this is worst could happen cause i did all modelling and now i cant get it right the final step arghh

You write:  "...on revit I cant just delete lines.."   Do you know about the linework tool and "INVISIBLE LINES"?  Obviously you don't.  Modify tab - linework tool - choose invisible line and pick the lines you want to hide.

 

Still no reason to export to CAD.

Open that window family, and choose on visibility settings "show only if instance is cut" . Im guessing its a custom window.
