Response from architect after receiving our model, "Could you also send PDFs?"

Me to myself, "Why don't you make them? It's only a handful of sheets. You have everything you need right there in front of you."

Next time you send the model, make sure you explode all of the dimensions and blocks. Oh... and put everything on layer 0.

Down-loading responsibility: if something is off on the PDF drawing and they didn't create it, guess who's fault it is...

Then again, what does the contract indicate?  Are prepared drawings included or was it just the model?
If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.

This was just an interim model share. Not a submission.

I always send PDFs.  It takes all of what 5 to 10 minutes.  Because there is going some who can't access the model.
Don't ask me questions without answers.

I guess different people need different things, and you generally prefer to receive what you actually need..

I'd bet about 50% of all the email I send are effectively "Thanks for the PDF, can I have it as a DWG as well, please!"

Our Architect just moved the site level up by 500MM, screwing all our levels, when asked why it moved, he "doesn't know, but it need to be there".

Happens, I have a hunch he was viewing emails on an iPad and couldn't open the revit file.
