I have been using REVIT for two weeks and have been asked to set up a template to use in our office so that everyone is working with the saem standards.

I need to set up wall types and assign appropriate lineweights to separate wall layers eg in a brick veneer wall, the brick part needs to the a thicker lineweight than the stud part and then a concrete separating wall thicker than those two.

I have tried cutting host layers in visibility graphics overrides but it treats all wall functions (eg structure[1]) in the view the same so this option doesnt work when several different wall types are used in the same project.

I have tried creating filters but this only works for single skin walls because a filter treats a wall as a whole not as separate parts.

MY QUESTION:

Does anyone know how to change/assign lineweights in REVIT so that proper Architectural lineweight convention is used throughout the project?

Any help would be appreciated,

Matt

So far the only method I use to change lineweights in Revit is by using the filters tab of your visibility graphics. Create a filter based on a family catagory, and add aditional filter rules as necessary. Once the filter is created add it to your filter list, then click in the lines column for the filter and change your lineweight. Choices range from 1-16. see attached file for an example of filter catagories. If there is another method I am interested to hear about it.

I really like the method wwhub posted as well....
It will definately be my preferred method now when I want all of one family type to display the same lineweight.
The filter method works good for me since I want a different linetype, color and width for each piping or duct system.
