Hi all. I am working on a detail view. The view is a callout of a section.

I am using the linework tools to make somes lines invisibles in the wall section.

When I select the outside lines of the walls, they dissapear: this is what I want.

 

The  problem is, when I try to make invisible the lines that are inside the wall composition, they become dashed and gray, not invisibles.

See attached Image.

Also, is is possible to make an hatch pattern invisivle in a callout view? 

 

Anyone can help? 

 

Thanks!

Hi, the lines appears like that but then when you print it's fine, about hatch-patter invisible go to Drafting - Masking Region...

Regarding the hatch patterns, in 2008 / 2009 - you can right click on the wall, choose over-ride graphics in view then by element and then under cut patterns, uncheck  the visible box.

 

Regarding the invisible lines - did they disappear as typhoon says?

Sometimes there are multiple lines in the same place and you have to use the linework tool multiple times.  If all else fails, you can use a masking region or a filled region with an invisible line edge.

Hi ASIDIE, can you put the image of the line at you want invisible and put here the model to download to see what's going on?

I agree with WWHub.  Try to use the linework tool multiple times over the same area (try tabbing through to make sure you got all the possible lines that are in the same spot), then try making a new line type (Settings - Line Styles) and make it a solid white line.  this will give the effect of being invisible.  For some reason the default <invisible lines> sometimes does not work on the interior vertical separations of walls.

 

Best of Luck.

Hi all!

Thanks to the Revit community!

 Here's the model. I saved it in the detail view. The line i want invisible is the one with the mouse on on the image joined. Or any line inside the wall, except the exterior or interior face.

Thanks to all!

The line work tool reads the wall properties and is designed to make invisible the exterior & interior face of the wall. It really doesn’t make much sense to be able to turn off just the boundary lines of your wall hatches since you can't make the hatch itself invisible with the line work tool. It might look a little strange to see the hatch with no boundary lines.

If you are trying to add you own drafting elements to do your detailing I would use the masking region and then detail over it or use filled regions to get the appearance that is desired.

I have lost invisible lines in the model/detail line option.  It is only available with masking regions.  Please help I need answer to create a proper template. Can't recreate because it a standard revit linetype<>.

i have faced the same problem wherein linework tool does not convert a wall line to a proper invisible line , but a grey line which prints too. i think the best way as suggested is to make a white line type and use it.

soes any one have an idea how do i apply a particular linetype to only a part of the wall. say of a 3 m wall I want only in between 1.5 mts to be dotted, how do i do it.
