Applies To:

  • Revit Structure 2008,2009. May apply to other versions.


The engineers annoy you with basic requests, like printing a drawing or measuring a distance. Is there some sort of viewer whereby the engineer can view my model without taking up a network license and print there own drawings!


Install the full version of Revit and set the License to Demo/Viewer mode.
Note: If the model is changed in Demo/Viewer mode, you will not be able to print. But you can print drawings and views if you open the model and make no changes. I also observe if you open the model and open any view, it will not print. But if you open the model and go straight to the print button you can print sheets and views.

A no cost viewer and printing tool!
Set Revit installation to Demo/Viewer mode. A Network license is therefore not taken.
