Batch Print for Autodesk Revit 2015

Batch Print provides an easy way to print a large number of drawings (views and sheets) from a Autodesk® Revit® 2015, Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2015, Autodesk® Revit® Structure 2015, or Autodesk® Revit® MEP 2015 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.

*Autodesk Revit 2015 software is only available as part of the Autodesk® Building Design Suite 2015 Premium and Ultimate Editions and Autodesk® Infrastructure Design Suite 2015 Ultimate Edition.

The use of Scope Box in Revit

Maybe you will think I am old school.
Do you know that most of the newbies do not know the purpose of scope box, the most powerful Revit tools in editing for a document presentation?
I recommend that you use scope box instead of a callout for documenting a portion of your project. Scope box will control the extent of any datum element such as grids, reference planes and levels. It is very handy to control the extents of the views, speaking in 3D wise.
