Door with varied lineweights

Recommended Posts

We use the NNA Door object for 2D plans. I Cannot for the life of me figure out how to show a door with 3 different line weights for the jambs, leaf, and door swing.

We place the doors in "Door-Main" class, with preset attributes (Use at Creation). Tried with that setting off and it still didn't seem to work.

We tried using the "Use Part Line Styles" in Settings and setting the line weights there, but it doesn't work.

Help appreciated.

Try these settings in the Attributes Panel - you were headed in the right direction utilizing "Use Part Line Styles"

The Attributes Palette for doors and windows should be set up thus:

? Fill Style-by Class,

? Fill Color-by Class,

? Pen Style-SOLID (NOT by Class),

? Pen Color-by Class

? Thickness (Line Weight)-NOT by Class

? These settings will allow the line weight set up in ?Use Part Line Styles? dialog to show correctly in sheet layers ? don?t forget to bump up ?Wall Lines? line weight for RCP (Controlled by Ceiling-Main Class)
