Hi,

I want my ductwork to be read in section with "cut" lines, but can't seem to override the object style.  It seems from reading other posts on the forum that it's just not possible, and I would have to change the category of my duct to General, then make a subcategory where I could then set line weights. 

Does anyone have a workaround that would allow my to keep my duct in the Mechanical Equipment category, but have it be "cut" in section?

Thanks for any help you can offer!

I don't know what families are cutable in MEP.  Look in help under "cut family"

In Revit help?  I looked through there and found nothing.  From forums I've read, it's a set property of families in the "Mechanical Equipment" category - it's greyed out in the Object Style dialog box (under Settings).  I've attached a jpeg to clarify. 

 

I heard this will change in Revit 10, but I'm wondering if anyone's found a workaround in the meantime.
