Hey!!

I am a student and have minimal understanding of Revit. I have modelled my assignment in Revit 2012 on my laptop and need to print it from another computer. The computers at uni have 2011 and they won't open my 2012 file!!! GRR! And I haven't worked out a way to save a Revit view in PDF. Is there a way of downgrading my file to 2011 and/or saving to as a PDF?!

Thank you for your help!

Claire

downgrading your revitfile is not possible.

i would suggest:

- you cant save to pdf file, use cutepdf writer to print to pdf file,

- or export a dwf. (if the computer has a dwf viewer, as it should )

yep, there is no way to backsave. 

 

Printing to PDF is very easy, and would be your best bet.  It's the exact same process as a physical print-job.

Thank you so much for your advice, and the heads up about CutePDF. All of your replies were very helpful Smile

Push your school to upgrade, I'm sure they are on a subscription equivalent, and thus should be able to run 2012 at this moment...

This is a good point.  There's also no reason the school can't also run two versions, to give the students a little bit of leeway.  I know our subscription allows us to run versions back to 2008.
