I'm dealing with drawings at various scales and am having difficulty with my line weights.  The require lineweight for my section is about four times that of my floor plans.

 

Is there a way to define line weights for a single drawing and not have it affect the other drawing? 

 

I am using Revit 2010

Can't you create a view template for different sheets. For example, if it is a floor plan - you would have a plan (view template) with all the correct line wieghts and line type. Then the only thing you would have to do is set the view template for that floor plan. Let me know if this was what you were looking for.

That sounds like what I'm looking for, but I've never done that before, could you give me a quick lowdown on it?

Okay - You would have to create different templates for different views (plans, elevations, sections, etc.)

You go to view - create view template - enter the name of your new view template (ex. Foundation Plan, Framing Plan, Sections, or Elevations). Now make sure you choose the view template that you just created - go to the right and start editing. For line types and line weights you go to V/G overrides Model. Once you get in a new window should pop up - this is where you would go find your structural column for example and change the way it looks. Mess around with the Projection/Surface and the Cut columns and see what you get.

After you complete the process - go to the view that you want to apply it - then go up to view - apply the view template to your view - This should display the changes that you made. If additional changes need to be done - type vg (for visiblity graphics) and continue making changes.

Hope this helps. Anything else let me know.
