Hi all, got a quick question about lineweights. How would I adjust the line weight of an in place component, without overriding it's visibility graphics in each view? I have created an in-place component under the casework catagory. Now, I don't want to change all casework in the project to this lineweight, so I'm assuming changing the casework object style won't work. Is there a spot I can change only this object's lineweight in all views?

Thanks!

Yeah, i have also been wondering about assigninging lineweights to individual objects so that they do not get overridden by the general lineweight settings. One would have to set the weights for each scale size. Probably easiest to just export to cad and set the weight before printing.

You can always create a new sub-category that will control these in all views.

 

Why would you adjust the lineweights for scale before exporting to CAD.  Revit already adjusts the lineweights for scale.... Oh, that's right, yor exporting to CAD....

Thanks WWHub, creating a new sub catagory in the project object styles worked perfect.

Once you've assigned sub-category, save a view template to access/apply the setting to any similar view.

Actually, once you create a new sub-category, you can set the object styles for that from the manage tab and it will contol this sub-category in all views of the project.

 

But view templates are always good to use and understand.

Thanks for the advice. View templates are the way to go for many other strandardized view styles, but creating a sub catagory worked just fine in this scenario. For those who may not know, a sub catagory can be created in Object Styles under the Manage tab. Then simply open your family for editing, select your object(s) and assign it to the sub catagory you just created in the properties menu.
