When you link a CAD file in you get the option to KEEP the colors or have them come in as B&W.

If you pick COLOR, is there are away later down the road to change to B&W?

Thanks

Not without loading it in again and clicking that choice.  Another possible thing you could do is a "partial explode" which I usually don't do because I don't want all those cad entities in my revit file.

If this is just about printing it, I believe the colored lines will come in as black and white based on your plotter settings.

One more thing you can do (depending on many cad lines you feel like changing) you can use your detail line tool and select multiple lines with your tab key, and add revit lines on top of the imported cad file.

 Not true, you can go to Object Styles -> Imported Object and there change colors of lines to black (also Material if needed)

you can also go to visibility graphics and expanding the cad layers (in "imported categories") and overriding the color of lines you can set them in any color and even separatelly
