When I want to change the line weights of a linked DWG file from REVIT, I link it in black and white and then "Import Line Weights DWG/DXF" to change the line weight of the colors I need to be darker or lighter. This might not be the best way to reach the desired effect, but it works very quickly.

My question is how can I cross ref. a line weight from a CTB file so that I can make the exact same thickness in Revit? In a CTB file, the line weights are in millimeters or inches. What are Revit line weights in?

Example: .05mm line weight in AutoCAD = ? line weight in REVIT

Alright, I figured that out. Rivet shows the line wiegth in inches under the settings. All I had to do was cross ref the mm width of AutoCAD to the closest number (1-16 = .00#"-.#"Winking in Revit and it works really well.

But now I am not able to change the thickness of any of the text from the linked dwg file (no matter what color it is). Anyone know why?
