Is there a simple way to have Revit automaticly bring forward planes forward via lineweights and grey out planes in background? (besides picking on individual lines) - for example when I change an object's or element's lineweight in the visiblity properties it changers it all the same reguardless of how far away from the cut plane it is - I want things forward to pop so the building reads right . . . and I asking to much? any suggestions anyone?

hello, due to my knowledge no automatic command to achieve this, but you can change the lineweight manually u take a command from the toolbar for overriding lineweights, u may need to make few line styes prior to this. thanks

Are you talking about object overrides? The issue I'm having with this is it will change ALL of the cut lines in the object to the same lineweight. I am wondering (and from what i understand, the OP is wondering) if you can have different lineweights in the same object. ei: in a roof section, you have your different layers of materials, your outside finish material, your core material, etc. Normally, you would only have the very outside lines the darkest, and lighter lines to show there are different materials inside. Also, for elevations, we typically have the darkest line outlineing the whole elevation, not each object. Is the only way to acheive this to set your overrides to the smallest lineweight, and draw thick lines over it? that would not only be extremely time conssuming, but the lines would have to be re-drawn every time something changes. this just seems so silly to me, and it makes revit practically useless for sections and elevations. I really hope I'm missing something here....

You can use the Lineweights tool to change individual line weights.
