    This spreadsheet doesn't make sense. Your liineweights for 1:12 and 1:24 are .0098, then go to .0138 for 1:48. then drop back down to .0098 for 1:96, then get even thinner, .0071 for 1:192, and finally .0035 for 1:384.

    Wait...what? Really? Damn....I wondered why my ceiling patterns were so thin...
    Like Aaron I thought they were off of LW1...

    How do you handle scaling lineweights up or down based on your starting point other than arbitrary guessing? If I assume that 1/8" is my starting point and get it where I want it, how can I factor the other lines based on that?

    Youll notice in the original post that i take the same view and make it a bunch of different scales. After you have the contrast levels where you want them, go scale by scale and start adjusting. Theres no *easy* button for it. Your lines dont always get thicker just because the view gets larger.

    necropost!

    Do you (or anyone else) use the Cut Line Styles override? To date lineweights are a big sticking point around here and no amount of tweaking seems to right... Wondering if that might help.

    Yeah, its how I hide the finishes on bearing walls for my structural plans....I change them to white and thinnest linetype.

    I don't use the cut line style override at all. But it's not all that different from regular cut styles.

We use these for Hidden Lines, that should not get thicker in details (like "object" lines should) as well as things like Elevation Swing and similar.
    Old thread but a clever idea. I've been pondering this issue recently and here you are (where) with an answer... nice!

    Anyone doing anything differently than what they originally posted on this thread? New thoughts?
