When you import a DWG
or DXF file, each layer in the file is assigned a line weight based
on the pen number-line weight settings. Revit Architecture can import pen
numbers from a DWG or DXF file and map them to a Revit line weight.
You can then save these mappings in a text file, and they become
the set mappings for the project.
Revit Architecture includes the
following files with pen and line weight mappings:
These files reside in
the Data folder of the Revit Architecture installation directory.
To set line weights
- Click Insert tabImport panel .
The Import Line Weights
dialog displays the mappings in the importlineweights-dwg-default.txt
- If this is not the file that you want
to edit, click Load, navigate to the correct mappings file, and
- In the dialog, match the appropriate
pen to the appropriate line weight (for example: Pen Number 1 to
Line Weight Number 1, Pen Number 2 to Line Weight Number 2, and
so on). Set as many pen-line weight mappings as desired.
- Click OK, or to save the mappings in
a new file, click Save As.
