I have worked with line weights for endless hours to develope a nice language of weights for each scale that works well with the object styles but it seem a complicated and endless task to get it up to a standard that is clear and crisp as Auto CAD drawings. The line weights out-of-the-box aren't so great. If anyone has some good tips on how to manage this more easily or would care to share thier weights and styles setup to give some insight it would be greatly appreciated.

I have similar inquiries. I've been trying to get a good set of line weights to work for importing our autocad details. The problem is I have details in varying scales. (some are 3" = 1' while others i import are 1" = 1' ) Yet Revit uses slightly differently lineweights for each scale. So how do i assign cad layers to specific Revit line weights when the Revit line weights constantly change depending on the scale?

I've been printing and testing and reprinting again and again and racking my brain for a few days now. I just wish Revit had a separate set of line weights for imported files... To make it simple, I just want something on a red cad layer to always print .02" regardless of what scale revit is set to....

how have others dealt with this? I'm tempted to just set all the Revit scaled line weights to the same across the board.. but i'm sure that will dramatically effect revit objects..

you control the export line weight through the "Export layers dwg/dxf" in your import export settings.

easier said than done though, if you are good at lisp (or know someone who is) you might be able to write a lisp routine that goes over the exported file and set the values you want to the layers.

I don't really worry about it too much, my DWGs are for the consultants to use as backgrounds, if you want a nice print do it from the PDF (that i issue with every DWG)
