Printing to PDF via Dynamo


#1

Is this easy enough to do? There are no basic nodes nor can I find any on the Packages website.

We have a corruption of a file in-house (From an in-house addon … don’t ask) that negates our ability to use the basic Print settings so I’m after a workaround.

Thoughts?


#2

what about exporting to DXF through Dynamo?


#3

Can try that! I’m assuming due to the PDF printer being an additional piece of software we can’t link into it?


#4

There’s no node for printing (yet), but if you’re willing to go the extra mile, you can do it with a Python node. Look for “PrintManager” in the Revit API.


#5

That could be a fantastic kick up my rear to get me started in Python :smiley: I’ll have a look into it if time permits. Cheers for the guidance.

Export from DXF
