I am creating some wall sections & related details in Revit 2012 & have a bit of an issue with the way the wall section is giving me line weights. I have created some Cut Profiles to wall components for my detailing & have used the option to Duplicate parts of the view so that my Cut Profile's will show up as the seem not to if I do a Call Out! I have included one of the sheets attached to describe my issues. I cannot seem to find where I can find the line weights of my wall so that I can at least draft over the places where my line weights do not match.

I will be scoring goals soon, I'm in the back line at the moment!

If you notice on the dwg sheet that the ends of the rafter has thin lines where i did a cut profile and the top of the dwarf wall and the bottom of the weather board cladding. I could just try a few lines to find out which was close enough but I would like to know how to get i right straight away.

Thanks in advance for any help.

As far as I understand it, VIEW/Cut profile lines can not be changed and will always be set to the element's category, default cut lineweight.

This is something we have aked to be able to change in the official, AUGI wish-list - but not enough users support it.

OK thats fine then how do I work around it by finding out what the line weight of the defining line of the elements are so that I can draw over the location where I have cut the profile so that it looks ok in my print out, because that is what gets queried out on the site where they are going to build it. The clearer the better out there!!

Sorry - as I said.... no workaround.  It can not be changed!  ONLY option is masking region using invisible lines.

Thanks for your assistance but I feel as though we had our lines crossed slightly. On the drawing sheet I attached I pointed out the places where my lineweights were not looking good. I appreciate that there is no workaround for the cut profile, but I was asking how to find the lineweight settings for the particular element i.e. on the roof section I cut the rafter back so that I could show the roof metal sheet overhang by 50mm or 2". So I need that line to match with the line defining the rest of the roof shown in section.

I went to the vis/graph overrides - object styles to find out, there it tells me under roofs that the lineweight for roofs cut is 4 !! well that is not right so I expanded it to try common edges where it tells me its 1 !! but thats not right either so I try a few line weights and it looks like 0.35 works.

I guess that is the "workaround" as in trial & error ??

All categories cut / and projected lines , colors and weights are controlled in your mange tab / object styles.

Yes thanks i did go there "I went to the vis/graph overrides - object styles to find out" but it seems that there is more to it than that. Naturally when one is creating details or  sections one is using differing scales. When I dropped down the list of wall components in object styles & then used the listed lineweights they did not work, I had to just go with trial & error within each scale to get the right lineweight for a particular scaled detail.

Which sort of brings the BIM qualities of Revit back down to a very ordinary level of basic line drawing cad program, aka Autocad year dot. But anyhow nothing is perfect. Thanks for your help.
