In this video, Shaun Bryant shows how to change and remove unwanted linetypes.
- [Instructor] We're starting a new chapter now…and we're going to look at our CAD drawing again,…but this time we're going to look at Properties Management.…In the previous chapter we looked at our…Layer Management and how we managed our layers.…What we also need to do is make sure…that all of our objects that we're taking…into Revit have consistent properties as well.…So we've got a new drawing for you.…It's 03_OFFICE_ReceptionArea.dwg.…You can see that the file naming is following…a pattern now, right?…And basically we're now going to look at…line types, so we're going to make sure…that all of the line types are consistent…in our CAD drawing before we take it…into our Revit model.…
Now, line types are important.…The way that you want to make sure…that your line types are consistent…is to make sure that they all are using…the By Layer setting.…So if I go to the Home tab for example on the ribbon…and go into the Layers panel, and look at…my Layer Properties again.…We'll look at this quite a lot…when we're in and out of looking at…
