Hey there

 

I am aware that this might be a very simple fix but I am struggling to find the answer to my question.

 

I have looked through Revit Help previously and other Revit City forums with no luck.

 

Simply, I just need to be able to export a Revit drawing to .dwg format and have ALL the linetypes remain the same. This is purely because we are indicating Fire & Smoke separation compartments on this drawing which have been indicated by using thick red & blue dashed lines.

 

After exporting (and trying every setting possible) the lines come out at 1pt lineweight, no colour, and a different dashed pattern. Again not sure if I am simply missing something which controls the export settings or not.

 

Any help asap would be appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance

CAD does not display line thickness and controls that at plot time.   Read your help here:

Thanks for your guidance WWHub.

 

I guess without reading through that information I just want to know - is what I'm asking still achievable?

IE: exporting so that these fire/smoke barrier lines remain the same as shown in Revit.

 

Even if it's a post-export adjustment in AutoCAD.

 

Thanks in advance
