HI,

I would like to print to PDF much the same way as we use Autodesk DWF Writer to print to DWF 

 

Is that possible?

as long as you have a pdf printer driver installled you should have no problem printing to PDF.

Hi Coreed, If you have the pdf printer driver installed, is that mean the "Publish PDF" will appear in the pull down menu in Revit?  Or it will only appear in the Printer Setup. If possible can you show us how it looks like on the attach file. I too is interested to publish my drawing in PDF. Some of my client just refused to accept WDF file! Thanks.

hey kimwong: the print driver spoken of is a driver installed by windows programs (ie: acrobat 8 professional)...general statement: regardless of your program... if you slect the windows printer with pdf driver it should pop up when printing... i have found that sometimes you will have to set it to the default windows printer for the prog to recognize it... there are many printer progs that print emulate to pdf (ie: pdf machine... acrobat 8... just google them as print to pdf)... good luck in australia...

Thanks Coreed. Look like I have to install a Adobe Acrobat PDF converter here! On the subject of PDF, what is the difference or how good is PDF 3D compare to WDF 3D? Anyone with a good experiences on PDF 3D to throw some light here? The new Autodesk Design Review 2008 for WDF 3D is great. Thanks.
