What is the best/easiest pdf writer to use with both Revit and AutoCAD?  Any thoughts.  I have acroplot and have used it for years, but I have a new computer without a pdf writer, so thought I would ask before I purchase acroplot agian.....

OK, i've tried CutePDF and it works, but only one at a time, no batch feature and seems reallllllly slow.  Has anyone had any experience with Bluebeam?  I don't mind paying for a good program if it works.

You can batch print to cute... all in one file or seperate files.  Only problem is that you have to name each file but you can batch.  And mine is pletty fast enough.  I export my schedule so that I can just copy paste in my names and I can barely keep up.

I have used BlueBeam to batchplot pdf in Revit in the past and it works pretty much like others. but you don' t have to name each file every time.

or you can use DWF as a default printer which I prefer it to PDF.

This will be released for sale in the next couple of hours.  Not free, but it does do more than just creating a PDF...

 

Sorry, now switching out of marketing mode...
