Dose anyone have the following that they would be willing to share:

1.  Object line wieghts that look good when printed off Revit converted PDF drawings (not that this should really make a difference)?

2.  A stanadardized sheet numbering system (tried the AIA link and it is no longer available (at least the one recommnded here in RevitCity) and I cannot afford $400 for National CAD Standards (NCS))?

As to affordability for the NCS, I mention this only in that many of us in the profession are struggling right now due to the economy.  Many of us are trying to increase our desirability in the emplyment market by increasing our skillset. The metion of "affordability" should not be construed as being too expenisve, just that many of us right now are struggling financially, wherein $400 becomes a lot of money.  Two to three years ago this would not have even been a question.

All of the books I have purchased to learn Revit, including: "Mastering Revit Architecture 2010" by Paul Auben; "Mastering Revit Architecture 2010" by Greg Demchak, Tatiana Dzambazova and Eddy Krygiel; and "Revit Architecture 2010 No Experience Required" by Eric Wing, all excellent books in their own right, but none have complete recommendations for line weights or sheet numbers.  If I were going to write a book on Revit, I would offer a starting point of line weights and sheet numbers, as well as other items, for people to set up professional templates.  Unfortunately, I do not find Revit's starting line wieghts (objects) or templates up to professional standards or should i say aesthetic standards that assist ther viewer of drawings understand said drawings better.  This should only be considered my opinion as "professional standards" are very subjective, though the NCS, from what I have been able to gleen is doing a very good job at standardizing construction documents for cross collaboration and clear understanding.

 As always with RevitCity, thank you in advance for your asistance in this regard.

Hey there -- I can't really enlighten you on sheet naming/numbering convention, but I can show you our utilitarian line weight and type conventions! 


Screenshot shows the basics.
