Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Looking at plot styles, scale, and paper space, part of Migrating from AutoCAD to Revit.
We've looked at many similarities and differences between Revit and AutoCAD so far, but one…aspect that we haven't considered yet is output.…At some point, we're going to want to output our files to either paper output, or some sort of digital deliverable.…Now, like AutoCAD, Revit has the ability to create sheets complete with Title Blocks.…And we can use those sheets to produce our physical printed drawings.…So, I'd like to look at some of the tools that we have available to us, and I'd like…to start with the Line Weight and Scale Display.…AutoCAD does a terrific job emulating the traditional drafting experience.…
But it's never really done a terrific job at emulating line weight particularly on screen display.…We've always had to wait until we printed the drawing in order to see the final line…weights, and we had to interact with a fairly complex collection of plot styles and color…mapping tables and other mechanisms in order to get the line weight display that we want.…So, I'm happy to say that in Revit, we don't have to jump through any such hoops in order to get line weight display.…
