    Line Weights for Custom Scale

    Hello guys... I wanna to know how do you manage a line weights for a custom scale??

    As you know the line weight dialog have only default scale..in that we don't have a custom scale option to add a additional view scale.

    Any workaround to manage a line weights for a custom scale?

      Don´t think it´s possible to add a custom scale to the "Line Weigths", same thing applies to the "Detail Levels"

        Dear Severnik...

        Thanks for your reply.... Actually we have the different LWT's for different view scale....Some of the details are at custom scale in which we require a some specific LWT...that why equal setting didn't work for me.

            Thats the great thing about "words". The term "next version" always applies to the next version. Just like "tomorrow". Tomorrow is always the day after today. /heavy sigh

              There's a thread over on AUGI that discusses this in depth, but I believe the bottom line was that any scale that's not in the list goes to the next closest. Might be the next finer scale, but I think it was the closest.
              Anyway, what that means is that if you have 1/8" ...

              Let's say you have Pen 5 set to 0.5mm at 1:100 and 0.3mm at 1:200 in the list
              If you make a Custom scale of 1:150, Revit will use 0.3mm

              (Please forgive me if my metric number are funny. I'm stuck in the USA & we have to use these archaic feet and inch things)

                  Hmm... i am in INDIA .... We use Metric.... I scared @ feet n inch

                  Dave...you metric numbers are correct one....

                  You are absolutely right...but issue is I have a different LWT for 1:150 n 1:200 .....n I have a some views which I need both view scale at different LWT.

                    If you want a really thick line, you could create a filled region. Go to Annotate, Region, select Filled Region, draw the lines, offset them by however thick you want them, form the shape by closing it at each end and use a solid hatch to the colour you want.
