It would really be important to create a way to insert pdf files into Revit and plot to PDF from Revit.  If anyone knows how this can be done or will try to get a work around that would be great! Thoughts?

I'm not sure about importing PDFs, but a great free PDF plotter is at www.cutepdf.com

Thanks . . . I had just read about that in another thread and will try that. I also read that there may be a PDF to DWG converter which might work well for inserting PDF's.

 Thanks again,

Joe

Your Welcome, Let me know how that PDF to DWG converter works out for you. That seems like it could be a very powerful tool.

If you have Adobe Illustrator there is an option to save to DWG.

The only problem of course is that the lines in the PDF have to be directly generated by a vector (cad) program. If the PDF is created by a scan or someother method, the information contained is just an image anyway an you might as well convert the PDF to a Jpeg.

Thanks for the suggestion, but when I tried to use Adobe Illustrator and save to DWG, it looked fine until I brought it into REVIT then it lost all line quality. Maybe it is a setting issue for when I link it ito Revit, or could be the way it is being viewed.  I take it you did not have this problem.  Any ideas why that happened?

Probably for the reason that I lsited above. It is not vector information but raster information (an image).

Can you open it in Autocad? You will be able to see if the lines are true Autocad lines or an image.
