How can I avoid the "rounded" line intersections when plotting, can I get defined corners?

Unfortunately Revit doesn't have this setting. To do this the workaround is to use a filled region as opposed to a thick line. That way you can define the edges with a thing line and just have a solid fill to make up the gap in between.

let me reply to my own question of 3 years ago and clarify this, Revit will plot sharp corners, what happens is that if you are in a for example 1/4 " scale in your view and you zoom in real close into any corner made by two lines, because of the zoom that corner will appear "rounded" but keep in mind that you are zooming in into the view not changing the scale when you plot the corners are sharp

okay, so:

 

1) Revit plotting is as sharp, hard and clear as AutoCAD?

2) Within Revit, ie while working, the lines displayed on the screen maybe rounded but they will NOT print out as such?

 

 Plotting is a pretty big deal, so glad for the prompt feedback! Smile

To summarize what was already stated, Revit's lines have rounded ends and corners. This is only a problem with very thick lines at very large scales. Revit programmers chose this type of corner/end in the early development stages of the program. In general drafting this should not be a problem. But Revit is a WYSIWYG program so it definitley prints what's on the screen, but at 1/4" scale you can't tell that a thin line has rounded corners/ends.

 

If you have to have square ends and corners the work around is to use a filled region with thin lines and solid fill.

HTH,

John
