Edit line weight in nested blocks of all XREF drawings.


Recommended Posts

The 2D drawings I am working with were exported from 3D REVIT files to 2D AutoCAD files. There are several XREFed drawings that are both mechanical and architectural from the original REVIT files that for whatever reason, the block's line weights came over with line weights of 70 in those blocks. When I plot, the objects are a blur with the line weight so high. I tried using the command "setbylayer" but that didn't work since nested blocks still had lineweights of 70. Is there a VBA or LISP routine to run through all the blocks (including nested) that can change the line weights to a given number? Thank you for any advise/recommendations.

Have you check SETBYLAYERMODE?

I'm not sure if it works with xrefs, but you can try :)




Thanks for the advise! Yes, this does the trick by setting that variable to 4. I have to open all the XFEFs though individually. Lot better than opening all the blocks.


Thanks again,
