Hi

I'm trying to draw a series of lines on a Site Plan to represent the extents of a piece of a land for development. I'm sketching detail lines consisting of a dashdot linetype. The dashdot linetype generally displays fine but in areas where I have  to sketch small lines because the boundary changes direction frequently, the line is too short to display the dashdot and just displays as solid. In AutoCAD you could join the lines together to form a polyline and then set "Linetype Generation" to enabled to enable all segments of the polyline to display the linetype correctly. Does anyone know if Revit has a similar feature / solution to this problem?

 Thanks

Well, there's no polyline function currently.

Can you include an image of what you are trying to do and what Revit is doing?

Hiya

As you can see from the attached, the line Labelled 1 consists of one line and displays the dot-dash linetype perfectly. The line labelled 2 however consists of many shorter individual lines and so the dot-dash linetype is unable to display correctly. The shorter lengths of line disrupt the dot-dash linetype pattern, and the pattern actually looks bigger than the one used for line no.1 - even though it is exactly the same linetype.

The lines labelled 3 shows what happens when drawing really short lengths of lines - the dot dash linetype appears as a solid. In AutoCAD this was easily resolved by joining the lines together to form a polyline and then setting "Linetype Generation" to "Enabled".

Any help would be appreciated.

Only thing I could think of is to create a one or more linestyles and set the line patterns to a smaller patterns for the shorter segments.

Yeah, I missed polylines too.
