How to Print From Revit


Autodesk Revit Architecture is software for designing buildings. It uses Building Information Modeling to guide projects through the design, documentation and construction phases. The current versions of Revit are 2012 and 2011. The process to print documents is the same for both versions. Revit print jobs replicate the screen content, with a few exceptions. The background prints white, regardless of the screen background color. Reference planes, work planes, crop boundaries, unreferenced view tags and scope boxes do not print unless explicitly unhidden in print setup. Temporary Hide/Isolate items print, even though they do not appear on the screen. Thin Lines tool modifications do not apply to printed content.

  • Click the large purple "R" in the top left corner, select the printer icon and then click "Print."

  • Select the target printer next to "Name."

  • Click "Properties" to make any desired changes to the printer properties. This step is optional.

  • Select the "Current window" radio button under "Print Range" to print the entire document. Choose "Visible portion of current window" to only print what is visible on the screen. Choose "Selected views/sheets" to specify views or sheets to print. If this option is selected, click the "Select" button to specify the target views and sheets and then click "OK."

  • Click the "Setup" button under "Settings" to specify advanced settings for the print job. This step is optional.

  • Click "OK" to print the document.

Tips & Warnings

  • Use the Batch Print feature to print a large number of views and sheets. Click the "Add-Ins" tab and then "External Tools" on the "External" panel. Select "Batch Print" and follow the prompts. Click the "Preview" button to view the output before sending it to the printer.
