    Default PDF from Revit - 100 % correct measurement ?

    Hi.
    I have been told that pdf format is a Picture file, and if you plot to pdf from Revit you cannot bee sure that it is 100 % correct measurement

    Is this correct ??

    Depends on how you plot from my understanding.
    If you plot via vector, the PDF should be correct when a know dimension is set and calibrated. You should also be able to snap to object lines to generate dimensions. I believe the same holds true if you're generating dwfs.
    However, be careful when plotting to vector. You may not get all of the objects you're trying to display.
