First time I've ever encountered this, but when I print to PDF, the solid fill pattern I have set in VG for walls prints like it is delaminated from the wall outline, in a jagged fashion. In Revit, there are no issues. When I print physically from Revit, those prints come out fine. When I print physically from the PDF, the "jagged-ness" prints. This leads me to believe it is my PDF driver when printing the PDF, but I have tried on two separate machines using 2 separate drivers (Bluebeam and pdf995). 

 

Currently using Revit 2015, U6.

Auditing and compressing has not helped with this.

Both PDF drivers are up to date, and there is plenty of RAM and HD space on both workstations.

Turning on/off harware acceleration did not make a difference.

 

Thoughts?

I'm not sure I see what you want me to see.

That being said - Understand that Solid fills will typically be rastered - thus pixalated.  Consequently, diagonals and curves will NOT be solid.

I thought that Revit defaulted to vector, unless you bring in shadows and it tells you it'll be a raster print. I'll have to look more into that. 

The color image is the PDF in question at 100% which shows the issue. The middle image is the same PDF focusing on another wall zoomed in, the right image is the same wall zoomed out slightly.

If the image is raster, wouldn't the pixelation stay constant when zooming in and out? (whereas vector constantly regenerates the lines? correct me if I am in error) 

Ultimately, when comparing the different zooms, the color fill seems to be slightly misaligned. Since the solid fill is a drafting pattern, there is nothing I can do in those settings.

Please quit refreshing your screen.  Each time you do that, it results in another post.  I deleted two of your multiples.

 

"...If the image is raster, wouldn't the pixelation stay constant when zooming in and out?..."  If you zoomed in with your eye - yes but you zoom in with a computer screen which has its own pixalation!

 

The default raster/vector plot is what you set.  However, all solid fills become cause Revit to switch to raster.

 

Zooming into a PDF on a computer is meaningless!  It can possibly vary with every system.
