So, this issure arose because when we send our drawings to a third party printer to create bid sets, Architectural backgrouds in our MEP drawings are printing too light.

We are doing all treades in house, and have seperate, linked files for each trade. 

 

In our Mechanical model, when the discipline is set to anything but "Coordination" or "Architectural" the Architecural model elements becomes halftoned and the lineweight becomes 1. This prints far too light

 

In the Electrical model, with all settings the same (that i can possibly think of) when the diciplines are changed from "Coordination" or "Architectural" the Architectural model elements (walls in particular) will halftone, but retain their weight specified in the Object styles. This is more appropriate for our drawings.

 

I cannot figure out why in one model the Discipline setting is overriding the object styles, and in the other it is not. I need to be able to thicken/darken the lines our Mechanical model while keeping it on the Mechanical discipline. Can anyone shed some light on what might be happening or where else I could look to minipulate these settings?

More than likely, the mechanical model has the architectural link set to halftone in their VG settings - could be by view templates.

The link is not set to halftone in the Visibilty graphics, and there are no templates or filters applied. The issue is not so much the half tone but the line weight changing with the discipline.

Found the solution, the setting controling this was under "Additional Settings" -> "Halftone/Underlay"
