I've done some searching through the forum and can't seem to turn up anything for my problem. How is everyone exporting their Revit perspectives to a vector based program such as Illustrator. I've tried using AutoCAD as a mediator and can't AutoCAD to print the view correctly. Is there a way to save a perspective as a .pdf, .eps or other vector based file? Thanks for the help, Myles

Use a PDF printer such as: Adobe Acrobat Professional CutePDF Jaws PDF PDF Factory To name a few. You can also export any view out as a image...

I haven't yet figured out how to export a revit 3d view as an image and have it come out vector based.  They only seem to come out as rasters which are virtually useless in illustrator.  As far as the print via pdf option, the image can be opened in illustrator as a vector.  It is not a line drawing however, rather a grid of smaller images.  This is also pretty useless when trying to manipulate the image in illustrator.  Any other suggestions for exporting as a vector line drawing?
