Change Line Weights of Cut Pattern on Walls
Revit is designed to draft all cut patterns on walls with number 2 line weight. This is annoying because the cut pattern in detail drawings should be little thicker than this. Fixing this problem is much easier than it sounds because Revit categorizes walls and cut pattern in the Object Styles where the Revit operator can change the size weights very easily, but every individual wall in the plan or section view has to get its own override Graphics in View.
In this article I like to show you how you can change the line weights of cut pattern on walls in Revit. After this tutorial, you will be able to present and print cut pattern on walls in detail drawings thicker than the standard, which Revit uses for all standard templates.
- Click Manage / Settings / Object Styles
- Scroll down to walls and change the Line Weight Projection to the thickness to want to (I changed the Line Weight Projection to 4 just for my presentation.) and click OK (shown in the images bellow)
- You can recognize that nothing changed in the cut pattern on walls in your drawings. Do not be worried because we are not done yet.
- Select Wall(s) you wish to change the line weights of cut pattern
- Right Click / Override Graphics in View / By Element (or By Category)
- Change the Cut Patterns to the same pattern you already have on walls (you can chose other patterns too) and click OK (picture bellow)
In the images bellow you can see two walls from the same family which have different line weights of cut pattern. This method helps you to create wonderful and readable detail drawings.
I hope I could help a little bit to find out how to the line weights of cut pattern on walls. I know that many of you might wanted to do that but never figure it out but now we can start telling friends too how to fix this problem in Revit.
