    Default Use the CTB file (penweights) in revit

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Is there a way to use the pen weights, .ctb file that we use for AutoCAD 2010 and use it in Revit MEP 2010. If so, could someone tell me how to bring it into revit

    Sorry, but Revit plots use something totally different from a .ctb.
    I draft in Revit with a black background.

    RobDraw is correct - no more Plot Style files. Thank the Good Lord for this, too. You control Lineweights using Object Styles in the Visibility/Graphics Dialog Box.

    Well that just stinks. My coworker was hoping to be able to use our penweights for this one time revit project he is doing.

    No, that doesn't stink. Plot Styles would ruin the intuitiveness of Revit. When are people going to realize that Revit is not a "drafting" program? You don't "draw" in Revit. It's nothing like AutoCAD at all.
