I am trying to figure out the best way to get my files to print nicely to pdf. We have some sheets that have autoCAD files on them and because of that, the sheets take forever to load every line from the CAD file and we are trying to figure out what is the best way to print to PDF so that the DWG lines don't lag the pdf file behind a bunch. 

Another question: Does anyone have issues with the Bluebeam plugin for Revit 2016? I keep trying to print to pdf from the plugin and every single time it trys to do that, it get's rid of 2-3 sheets. The ones it always does is my Building Data sheet which has just a few schedules on it. It also always doesn't print our survey sheet and that is just the survey from civil and it is a CAD drawing on there and that's it. Sometimes It also doesn't print out my Demo Site Plan sheet. That has a CAD drawing on it and some fill regions since we are demoing everything that is there and our building is taking over the entire block. But that's not typical. 

If anyone can help, that would be great since even BlueBeam IT isn't very helpful.

Use pdf architect

http://www.pdfforge.org/pdfarchitect

Open your autocad files in autocad and delete everything out of them you do not need. purge, overkill and audit. Reduce them as much as possible.

Ideally, import the dwgs into a separate revit model, explode them, clean them up so the line styles are correct and then copy them into a drafting view in your project. Revit hates dwgs. They always cause problems

I've never had any success using Bluebeam. Its always sucked.

Thanks. I don't think we will be able to jump to that. Kind of hard for me to convince my principles to completely get rid of 50 licenses for a pdf reader to move to another one. But thank you for the suggestion. We will see what happens. They also really like the 3D pdf aspect to BlueBeam
