Are there any ways to alter the end condition of a line in revit?  AutoCAD polylines ended with sharp flat ends and our lead engineer wants our Revit drafted beams to show the same way if possible.  We dont want the beam's true outline (like in medium or fine view), just a fat line with flat ends.

 Is that possible?

Only if you use filled regions. Outline them with invisible lines if you want really crisp corners. Beyond that you are stuck with rounded ends.

 

Aparently Revit started off with square corners and people complained that they wanted it to look like good old pen drawings (fat pen = rounded end of line). Now that the development team switched to rounded ends people want square ends... just cant please everybody.

Why not an option available to pick which end style you want rather than forcing it either round or squared?

Once upon a time all lines in Revit were square off, people complained and they rounded them. The rationalle behind rounding them is that is what hand drafting looks like. If you use a thick pen it ends up with a round end, not a square one. The square ends cae about with cad.

 

Now people complain and want them square again... What quinn said is what most people sugest now. Its just a matter of what that means in the code. If its a complete rewrite would you rather have square lines or new features...?

 

I would vote for new feature, but thats just me.
