Hi all,

I have a wall in plan, punctuated by concrete columns. Instead of drawing a separate wall inbetween each column, I have it as a single continuous wall running through the concrete columns. I then join the wall and the columns, and the plan-view shows it as as seperate walls inbetween each concrete column.

The line-weights bother me though, since the concrete-column (much thicker lineweight) has a thin line were it is joined to the wall. See attached sketch.

Is there a setting that could enable the thicker concrete-columns' lines to continue thick, regardless of what it is joined to?

Thanks in advance!

...and yes, it's a structural column, not an architectural column...

Change you object style settings for either the wall cut or the column cut.  You can also do that by view in VG but object styles would be the better place.

Hi there,

I'm having the same problem exactly as described by Revin, as seen in his image after joining. However, I don't see how WWhub's suggestion addresses this.

The question is not the cut graphic settings of either walls or columns(in either object settings or vue override windows), but the common edge parameter - ie as soon as the wall/floor is joined to a column, the line that separates the two. The rest appears fine as per cut graphic settings.

I would like to be able to include structural columns within a wall. Graphically, this requires joining to clean up the overlap. But as soon as I join, the junction assumes the common edge properties. As logical, I would like my structural columns to have a strong lineweight. But as soon as I boost the common edge thickness it applies everywhere and my wall layers everywhere become thick and incomprehensible!!

This seems like a a clumsy situation for a largely brilliant package. Does Revit have a solution to this problem?

Thanks very much in advance for any help.

YEEEESSSS!

 

Just found the solution to my own problem! Since I'm a nice guy; I'll share....

 

Edit the column family, draw symbolic lines on the column cut linetype in the family plan view. Attach to the reference planes so they perform as the extrusion geometry in terms of sizes. Reload into project. 

 

As a result, we see in plan the thickness of the symbolic lines over the top of the attached geometry lines that behave according to common edge parameters.

 

As they say - have a nice day!

Hello, how do you trace the lines when you draw to create symbolic lines ? I get this warning when i draw it tracing the edges "Highlighted lines overlap. Lines may not form closed loops."

Do not trace the lines in the sketch mode. Simply, in the plan view trace over the column lines, lock them to ref. planes and you’re done.

I can not see "Symbol Line" in Revit 2019 and i wonder if it is replaced with "Detail Line". Even it is, it doesn't have options like coloumn among line styles. It has a few including thin, medium, wide but thin and medium is thinner and wide is thicker than coloumn line.

Are you in the family editing environment - this is where you will find symbolic lines (under annotations).  Go to object styles to adjust the line-weight, or create a new one with the desired thickness.

That could work i think, or create a new one by using detail component line-based template.

Oh my bad...i was missing the point. It is under annotate in "edit family" tab. I was checking the normal annotate. I found it, all good now Smile
