I'm trying to print to an OCE TD600 with normal print settings, but my existing walls (which are supposed to be gray) are printing black. 

 

I am forced to set my print settings to "Black Lines" because of model lines and imported .dwg lineweights. 

 

Is there any way to get these lines to print gray?  

 

Is there a screening tool? Or any setting that will make these do what I want them to do?

 

Thanks in advance for any help rendered on this subject!

Use a view filter with half-tone set to on.

 Will need to mark the existing wall instances with something like "EXIST" in the comments field or similar, then create a filter that finds walls with "EXIST" in the comments field, set visibility of the filtered items to on then set half-tone to on.

all done.

Are you using phases in your project?  If so do you have the phase filter set properly and the material Phase-Existing set to print the way you want?

If you are seeing the proper wall display in Revit then if you are not getting the print to come out of the Oce the way it displays in Revit it is a printer problem and you need to contact your Oce rep.

he's using the black lines setting which means that no matter what colour (except white) you choose for lines they come out black. I personally just use phase filters and set existing items to a very light line weight.

If you wanted to use greyscale printing you could always override your autocad imports to all be black lines. then just choose grey for existing items in phase filter.

Thanks a lot for the help. 

 

I ended up having to do what Scott said.

 

I've overidden ALL of my imported CAD linework as well as other (colored) linework throughout the project to BLACK.  This way, I can print grayscale and the lines will end up the weight i want and the color = black/grey.

 

Thanks again!

Try setting your phase of construction to your desired look through Settings - Phases - Graphic Overrides.
