I haven't use Revit in a long time, and I havent use it much anyway.Now I'm trying to get my boss more involved into using Revit, but he's an old dog, and therefore, likes to use AutoCAD.

One of my main problems of selling the software to him is the way that all elevations & sections looks like. All lines are flat, no jerarquical order of what's in front of what, or no diference between the edge of a wall and it's hatch.

I know where to change the settings, but don't know the best way to manage this. Is there a methodology on these? How can I make the lines differ from the others?

I mean I can setup to have the edge of a wall to be thick, but what if a wall is further away ? I want that wall so look thin....

Ideas, suggestions?

 Thanks

Hi, in the elevation view you can pick in the walls you want and go to "Override Graphics in View - By Element" and change "Halftone" like you can see in the images attached....

Other way that maybe can help you, is the use of the "linework" tool. You only choose the wall and the line style you want: thin, medium, wide, or custom lines, etc. (see the attached image). Hope this helps you.
