Hey everyone,

I'm using Revit Architecture 2013 for my project and have a problem with shading showing up properly when I print drawings versus what's shown on the screen.  Our building is broken up into many different pours, so to differentiate what pour the drawing refers to, I shade the walls/beams/slabs/etc. a dark grey via the graphic overrides to stand out on the sheet and everything else gets half-toned. 

I've attached a file to better illistrate the problem.  In the attached file, I have beams which are dark grey and walls above them which I have half-toned, 50% transperancy and hatch diagonally to show, but not fully hide the beams below.  On the screen it looks how I want it, but when I print it using either Bluebeam or my paper printer it comes out incorrectly.  This therefore, messes up my pattern/color scheme and I need to resolve it.  I adjacent walls next to the incorrent ones are the exact same wall and parameters.  I figured it has to be some sort of print setting and I've tried to adjust as many as I know and I still can't resolve it.  I already have multiple drawings configured like this and would prefer to fix the print settings and not the shading.

Please let me know if you have any idea why this would be occuring.  Any tips or personal experience in this issue would be greatly helpful.

Thanks in advance! 

The software:

Revit Architecture 2013

Bluebeam Revu 10.2.2

Have you tried printing with Raster instead of Vector?

Yes, the raster option usually does get rid of it, but the clarity is terrible.  When I zoom in the image get's pixelated and we have too much detail shown to proceed with that.  Thanks for the response.

Just had this same issue with a casework family, except mine didn't involve a graphic override. The shaded view would display perfectly on screen, but when I did a print preview the object would lose the shaded color but keep the hatch. Turned out this was because there was a masking region embedded in the family elevation views. For some reason this would only show up when I went to print, hiding the shaded color of the geometry beyond but not the hatch. I deleted the masking regions and they printed fine. Check your family to be sure that there are no masking regions in the elevation views.
