does anyone know why when i print up a project, sometimes my printer will print up 2 copies of the one page. i think its got something to do with if a view is currently active on that page.... ive wasted so much paper over the years! (& ink)

If you have a view currently active on a sheet, that view will be ghosted.  It will not double print because of that.

 

There is a number of copies on your main print page, is that set to more than 1?

 

Otherwise you may have some equipment problems because Revit doesn't do this.

I have been having the same issue at my work with revit 12, 13 & 14. on different workstations and different users and diffent jobs. On multable printers.

Some one will go to print a job, lets say a 10 page job and 2 or 3 of those pages will print doubles.  So a ~20-30% increase in waist when ever a full set is printed.  not to mention waist time sifting through looking for them.  

Before someone says it, printing to PDF then to hard copies does work. But this is not a solution its a work around.

Any ideas anyone?

These are not typical Revit issues.  They may be user error, hardware, driver or possibly even network.  Those are the areas you should look at hard.  From what you describe, I would look at network first but that is something I don't know much about.

Sometimes we remember things wrong.  I would recheck your printer drivers.

Thanks for the reply, these are all good ideas.

user error: This is where I go first when someone in the office is having problems too. But I doubt we are all doing the same thing.  I'm not even sure how to make it do it if i wanted to. print>print range> all sheets > ok. > Number of copies 1. > Ok print. and we get the above problem.

Hardware: Most of us are running variations of HP Z400 all with Win 7 periodically updated. with slight differences hardware changes from machine to machine.

Printers are different so not sure what’s happening there. RICOH Aficio MP C4500 PCL 5c, RICOH Aficio MP W2401 PS, EPSON SC-T5000 all installed on our server running win server 2008 and shared. We also were running a canon ipf710 direct connection via i.p. with the same problem. I might try running one of the new printer direct via its i.p and see if it still happens. 

All hardware has been completely wiped & reinstall at different stages over the last couple of years.

Driver: Different drivers different machines. However is there come  generic  windows printer/ spooler / program that may have be the issue?

Network: Similar to above. I'll try running some printers direct to the printer via i.p not shared over the network see if that helps. also generic windows printer/ spooler / program issue as above? 

If it is a network/driver/hardware issue not a revit thing. why do we never get problems with AutoCad, PDFs, Solidworks, Word, Outlook, Civil 3D and so on.  I would think it is a revit based problem.  After a quick google I’m not the only one but I cannot find a solution.

 

I’m open to any trouble shooting ideas.

I have just encountered the same issue too. Seems to be the same sheet every time for me. I batch print a number of sheets, set one copy only and I get one copy of each, plus a copy of the problem sheet. I have printed from this project and sheet many times without any issues, but it has suddenly started happening. I'm running 2014 LT.
