Description

Batch Print provides an easy way to print a large number of drawings (views and sheets) from a Autodesk® Revit®, Autodesk® Revit® Architecture, Autodesk® Revit® Structure, or Autodesk® Revit® MEP software project.
 
After preparing the default printer and the Revit software project, use Batch Print to send any number of drawings to the printer and to control the order in which they print. When you start the print job, Batch Print manages the printing of the drawings, requiring no further interaction from you. If desired, you can monitor the progress of the print job using a status dialog.

  • Useless
    Harrison Staab | June 13, 2018

    Echoing several other reviews, this app is designed only as a means to physically print the correct order of your drawings. However, it has no use for printing PDFs - you cannot print to a single file. It is maddening that there is no OTB solution for a simple operation..


  • Useless for batch PDF printing
    Zeeshan Janjua | June 29, 2017

    Does same thing as Revit's built-in PDF printing, except for reordering sheets. While printing multiple sheets to PDF, it either keeps overwriting a single file (so be the end of the process you are left with the last sheet of the set). Or it prompts for a file name each time, which is exactly what we were trying to avoid in Revit.


  • Needs to be able to print multiple sheets to single file
    Mitch Wohlers | May 18, 2017

    Prints fine with Bluebeam, but without the option to print multiple sheets to a single file it will not be useful to us.


  • Indeed useless for pdf
    Maarten Kobes | October 18, 2016

    exporting should be way easier.. Different sizes and combing pdf is needed. Or a good (adjustable) naming format for the separate sheets


  • A complete waste of time!!!
    Tanya Hill | August 23, 2016

    This needs to batch print to one file for PDFs. One file per sheet is bollocks - I can do that with the normal print command using "print selected sheets" and our PDF writer. There may be a minor benefit for hard-copies, but at least with them you can physically re-order your sheets or print them one at a time in the order you want. Why can't the normal print command have the option to print in the option to re-arrange your sheets? Or the order of your browser organisation (if you've managed to re-order that to your satisfaction)? One star rating because I can't go lower.


  • useless
    Lionel Camara | July 27, 2016

    You get ONE feature with this Add-In: the ability to re-order sheets (FROM ONE MODEL) before they're printed. However, the output is to single files (if making PDFs, etc.) so that feature has no impact (does the same thing Revit does) since you still need to reorder the sheets when you combine them. This might have SOME use if you're printing directly to hardcopy, but WHO DOES THAT? So in exchange for gaining essentially NO functionality, you loose the ability to change any settings (unless you're willing to change them through Windows defaults, first), you need to launch an "extra" Revit (since it wants to print in the background), and no other Add-Ins are loaded (so you can kiss Timothy Logan's "No Plot" functionality goodby - it's on Github now, BTW). It also asks you for the file name every time (a generic "BatchPrintInitial.pdf" - no sheet number or name included) unless you change the printer default. This all in addition to the reason I never bothered to try it before: you can't print (and therefore combine & reorder sheets) from multiple models!


  • It could not be more usless
    Dave Meza | June 27, 2016

    Had to give it one star because I have to give it SOMETHING to submit review. It only prints to default plotter/printer, can't pick printer from utility, still asks for user input when plotting pdf, filing EACH file. Sorry I wasted my time downloading and trying it.


  • Needs to be PDF compatible.
    Dumac Energy | May 24, 2016

    Hopefully Autodesk realizes what a blunder and an insult this add-in represents. 99% of documentation from Revit must be delivered as PDF and this is where the simple feature of re-ordering a sheet set is needed WITHIN REVIT. I had my hopes up for this add-in but it falls short from filling the frustrating void of Revit's printing capabilities.


  • ridiculous
    Jeffery Cuppy Harwood | December 09, 2015

    Doesn't work with Adobe or any other PDF maker. So it is pretty much worthless


  • Worthless for printing to PDF's which is why I need it.
    Group User | October 12, 2015

    It saves separate files for each sheet, which sort of defeats the whole purpose of using it. Much easier to reorganize the sheets in a PDF viewer, like Bluebeam.


  • Just for physical printer
    Andre Almeida | October 11, 2015

    Batch print just works with physical printer. The help statement should be in the description: "When the current default printer is a virtual printer, such as Adobe PDF or Autodesk DWF ™ Writer, Batch Print either will not print or will only print one page only"


  • Too basic
    Eric Lovell | August 04, 2015

    I need to be able to reorder my sheets and print to PDF all in one document. I don't want all 170 sheets to print individually to PDF. This should be a feature of it to batch it all together and have it as 1 document. My printer at work works better printing from a PDF then it does from Revit.
