The Linework tool is a visibility graphic override option that can be used in securing the correct graphic treatment for a given Revit Architecture drawing. However, this method is best used sparingly; it is ideal for giving a nearly-complete drawing one or two final touches. This video will show you how to use the Linework tool in Revit Architecture 2015.
…So far in this chapter we've seen global object style settings…and view specific overrides at both the category and the object level.…Sometimes, none of these methods is sufficient to get…just the right graphical treatment in a particular drawing.…In such situations we have the Linework tool,…our last line of defense if you will.…With these tool we can actually modify the individual edges…that make up an element and vary them as required.…For example, we could make one side of a wall bolder or we could…change the roof overhang to a dash line in certain areas of the plan.…
The Linework tool can be just what you need to add that…finishing touch to your work, but please remember to use it sparingly.…So, I'm in a file called Linework, and I'm in the level two floor plan.…And I'm going to zoom in over here in this area above the lobby.…And you'll see that I've got this Open to Below space.…That's the lobby space down on the first floor.…And then over here is a floor slab, which…provides a balcony space looking down into that lobby space.…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
