In this video, Shaun Bryant shows how to change and remove unwanted lineweights.
- [Instructor] We're staying in…our O3_OFFICE_ReceptionArea drawing as we've done…with previous chapters.…We're just following along with each video,…working with the drawing as we go along video by video.…Now, what we're going to look at this time is Lineweights.…Now, whilst Lineweights aren't dramatically important…when you Import or Link a CAD drawing into Revit,…it's always good to make sure…that everything has a consistent Lineweight…that way when you do bring it into Revit…it all is just one particular Lineweight,…there's no Lineweight standing out in any which way.…
So again, we're going to go to the Home tab on the ribbon…and into our good old Layer Properties here and you can see…that all of our Layers have a specific Lineweight.…Now, you may remember in the previous chapter,…we did touch on this and we made everything used…that 0.09 millimeter Lineweight…so it's all got the same Lineweight.…Now, the problem that you may have in the drawing,…if I close the Layer Properties Manager,…is you may have Lines and Objects…
