Just want to share something i found out in detailing in revit, well our problem before is that when we explode the details which was made from cad some lines are missing because it is not being read by revit because it is really small, for example the screws or head profile of window, I just found it last night that I must first turn those screws or head profile of window to detail component family and those small lines that are missing will still be there even if I explode the import symbol cad in revit.... I guess I got it right or is anyone doing this method that I found out..

Hope to learn more revit.............

You will discover that exploding CAD details is a very bad thing because you will quicky bog down your model.  A lot of CAD imports will also do the same.  Exploded CAD DWG's will leave you with multiple linestyles based on the CAD file name and if you have hatch patterns, look out.  Before long you will not be able to go through your hatch pattern list because it will be too long!

yup we encounter that already, we erase the hatch in cad set the layer name to the  same linestyles  in  revit and import it.  then after importing it then we put the filled region on those details and put  text in it.. 

hope to learn  more revit....
