I have been using autocad to pdf which works perfectly. But fron revit to Adobe acrobat pro PDF always has issues. Most of the time it does not even print, it gets stuck in loading phase for 5-6 hours. when it does print its nothing like the preview in print sheet or the lineweights in the model itself.

Hi @Ash26993016naky,

 

Hope you are doing well. Sorry for your experience with Acrobat.

 

Since you are experiencing issues with color profiles when viewing and printing PDFs from Revit, would you mind trying the below steps:

  1. Open the "Printing Preferences" for the Adobe PDF printer. See details in the helpx: Adobe PDF printing preferences (Windows).
  2. Click the Adobe PDF Settings tab in the "Printing Preferences" dialog.
  3. For Adobe PDF Output Folder, browse to the folder where you want PDFs to be created.
  4. Ensure that the "Prompt for Adobe PDF filename." and "Rely on System Fonts" options are NOT selected.
  5. Click OK.

 

Let us know if this helps.

Are you exporting to pdf? That usually works better than printing to pdf. Here is a link to Autocad instructions:

https://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/revit/learn-explore/caas/CloudHelp/cloudhelp/2022/ENU/Revit-D...

As for the line width, there is an Acrobat Page Display preference to enhance thin lines, try turning this off.

If these suggestions don't help, it's possible you are creating a very complex vector pdf (too many nodes), if so you can try exporting as raster or simplifying the pdf. Search this forum for the word "simplify".
