In this video, Shaun Bryant shows how to manage your CAD drawing layer properties.
- [Instructor] Another thing you might want to consider…is your layer properties…when you're bringing your CAD drawing into Revit.…There's quite a lot of colors here…on the O2 Office Reception Area drawing,…which we're staying in for this particular video.…And what you want to think about…when you're bringing all these colors in…is sometimes they can be a little bit layery…and a little bit unwieldy…when you're working in a Revit environment.…So, what you want to think about…is basically tidying up those colors as well.…So, again, like in previous videos…we're gonna go to the home tab on the ribbon…into the layer's panel and go to our layer properties.…
So, let's have a look at what we've got here.…We've got lots of different objects:…We've got doors and door glazings, for example.…Now, they're both using the same color…and the same line type.…That's a good thing.…However, their line weights do differ…when you're working with line weights.…Not that that would be a problem…when you bring it into a Revit environment.…
