I can imagine this question has been asked before, but the UI for searching in RevitCity is hard to navigate.

Why does my line weight in my family (which is dictated by the object style) not translate over to my project when I load the family? I am using a long narrow rectangle as detail component and using "repeat detail component" to create a ribbed conrete finish look in elevations. However when i do, it uses the standard line weight in the project and makes it look really dark due to the closeness of the lines.

 

Thank you, and sorry again if this question has already been asked!

 

I'm using revit '11

 

 

cheers

when you load a family that used different line weight from the project but has same name, then line weight follows that of the project.

you have to make unique name for line style at the family if you want to maintain line weight at projects.

and it's same when you use materials.

they are project and scale dependant. if you are working in 1/2" scale in the family and 1/8" scale in the project they are obviously going to appear different. if you are having this issue with multiple families then a project object style change is the answer, if its just a single family thats the problem then change the linetypes in the family editor. you can transfer object styles from a family using "transfer project standards" although i dont recommend it.
