I am having trouble plotting out drawings from revit. I believe the problem is the drivers currently installed only work for autocad drawings. If anyone else has had this problem and knows where you can download plotter drivers for Revit please let me know. The plotter we are using is a HP DesignJet 750C Plus. Thanks

There are no "drivers" for Revit "plotting". Revit simply uses the Windows operating system to handle "printing" no different than any other Windows application. Simply choose the printer and apply a page setup.

Nathan, You will find this is a very talked about topic. Tom is very much correct that you have to think of this as a normal Windows program, and print accordingly. If you have a printer driver installed there, then you have access to it via Revit. Smile Keep in mind in the Plotting window, there are two main areas - The main Print Window, where you select the printer you want to use, and the Settings Window, where you chose paper size, portrait or landscape, scale, vector or raster. In the Settings Window, once you have a setting you like (ie: 11x17 landscape at 50%), you can save it with a name. This is great because you don't have to keep re-entering this information over and over. You can have as many of these as you wish. In the Main Window, select what you're going to print - be it the current window, the visible portion of that window, or a list of selected sheets or views that you've chose. You can also save your list for later use (ie: all the schematic sheets or all the mechanical sheets, etc.) I do find a lot of people sometimes take a slightly different route, and plot to a file - either a DWF or a PDF first, then send the file to the printer. This way they've got a 'historical' copy they can email to a client or archive. Obviously you don't want to do that for check plotting, etc., so the standard printing still is appropriate. Hope this helps. Kyle
