I need help with this.  We are a residential firm and our drawings are VERY detailed especially in our elevations.  Revit doesn't like to do this.  At least I dont' know how to make REVIT look like AutoCAD Drawings.  Does anyone have any tips or tricks on how to get models to start looking like this?  It seems that in order to make the drawings look like this it takes ALOT more work then to just draw it in AutoCAD.  We are very picky on how our drawings end up looking and Revit just isn't seeming to cut it.  I know there is a way to do this...but how?  Please help.  Thanks.

First, I hope you are going to upgrade to 2008, there are some nice tools there that will aloow you to override element's graphic easily, you can still do that with your Visibility/Graphics setting for your view.

start by assigning different line weight to your elements, or you can use the Linework tool to. you can also use the paint bucket for the hatching.

I find that using shadows in your elevation will give you depth.

Thanks for the replay Eldados.  Actually this is the only project we have in 2008.  So we are using 2008.  I just have my signature saying 9.1 because all our other projects have not been upgraded yet.  We need to get 2008 on all computers still. 

So what you are saying is to use Override graphics elements in the right click menu?  I have started to use that and seems like a good method.  Also another thing is the paint bucket tool.  When I use that it changes the material.  Is there a way to keep the paint bucket tool specific to the views?  Say put a hatch on one thing but keep it as the pre-existing material in all other views?

 

Thanks for the help.
