    Default Areas of my 3D view are not being printed correctly on the drawing sheet or when I PDF

    When I have my drawing sheet created and it's time to print whether I print out from Revit or I print to PDF in both Rastor or Vector mode different parches of the 3D view are being missed off the drawing. The drawing itself looks fine on screen before the print is carried out. I will attach two files of the PDFs so that you can see what I mean. At the moment due to this problem I am unable to print out any drawings with 3D view on, so I would be grateful if someone could get back to me as soon as possible.

    I'm not sure if this will have anything to do with the problem but I had an issue with the glass materials showing through the walls and when I searched the forums for an answer I got the answer to update my Nvidia driver to the beta version 301.24 and take the tick out of the 'use hardware acceleration' check box.

    Linzi,

    I don't have a solution to this problem, but I am experiencing similar bad results trying to print 3D views to pdf. Very inconsistent, sometimes it works but most of the time it doesn't. Same issue as you with the 3D view missing big chunks of the drawing. Does anyone have a recommendation for getting good pdf output of 3D shaded or realistic views? I have Adobe and Bluebeam on my computer if anyone can recommend specific settings?

    Same issue here. Anybody find a solution? It was working fine and then suddenly started screwing up the 2 3d views in my project. Mine was specifically after I changed some settings trying to get a better looking 3d view, but I haven't been able to get it to revert back to printing correctly even though I (think) I set all those parameters back to what they were before. Very frustrating.
