Hello all... I am a revit newbie with more zeal for the program than experience. I am working on detail drawings, where I am adding components such as a cmu bond beam or roof drain to wall/roof sections. I can get the components in, no problem, but the "medium" to "fine" detail of the wall structure shows through. How can I mask or "cut out" these lines? Your help is much appreciated! Tzzy

what i have been doing on my wall sections lately, is putting a filled region that is filled with a solid white hatch overtop of the entire region i want to draw over. that masks out all the stud lines no matter the detail level. i then simply draw in the level of detail i want to show. it creates a bit of a re-draw, however it allows me to control my section line weights much better. this may not be the best solution, but it seems to be working for me.

The filled region approach does work well... however, the linework that is associated with the filled region, ie. the outline of the filled region, still shows... any suggestions? Thanks again... tzzy

When you create your filled region you could use one of two options - 1/ Use invisible lines to create the bounded area of the filled region 2/ Use the pick tool instead of the pencil (draw) tool to creatre the filled region bounded area Hope this helps

You should explore using the "linework" tool. It is the icon that looks like an old fashioned fountain pen. The linework tool over-rides the display of any model line that is diplayed. You can choose "invisable" or one of the other linetypes in your project. To get the line back to it's normal category display choose "by category" and it will be reset. HTH Tom
