Hi all;

maybe someone can help me? I have imported few dwg's into Revit.. dwgs are drawn w/ colors...red, yellow etc Prior to importing I set "import lineweights" revit lines(1,2,3...) to colors in cad... nontheless after importing all lines are same width (about 3) what am I doing wrong??

ps. I set CAD lineweights to default...

When I create linetypes, families of blocks, etc. I usually like to put the entire symbol, line or whatever on Layer 0 in AutoCAD then save it in its own dwg file then import it into Revit.

I have not worked with the lineweight settings on import but you can do this:

(Hopefully, your dwg was set to lineweights by layer.)  In the view where the import resides, goto VG and select the Imported Categories tab - find your dwg and expand the listing.  You will now see every layer and you can override the lineweights here.

Hope this helps.

The colors of cad lines correspond with the numbers in revit as follows:

 

 

red = thin

green = medium

white = m bold

cyan = wide

etc.

I would look at your print file from AutoCAD and compare it to the object styles of the lines that are braught into Revit and just make them match in object styles.  Im not framiliar with A-Cad but I know there is a file that tells you what pt size each color means for your color and you can, by hand, transfer than information to revit in its object styles.

Lineweights should be set by colour in Autocad.

In Revit under File > Import/Export Settings > Import Lineweights DWG/DXF you will find a table that matches CAD lineweights to Revit Lineweights.
