Line weight cant display as shown on screen

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Anyone knows how to control the line weight to be shown EXACTLY as we set up on screen. I already set the line 3mm width that is displayed ridiculous wide on screen, but when i issue it to pdf, it looks wider but not as I expected.

it always looks thinner...





VW 2016 SP4 MAC.

I usually set my design layer the same scale as my viewport. Generally use the 1:100;

Line weights I have the usual 7 Line weights .09 to 0.7, then all the rest i set to 0.05. Why some will disagree, well how often have you looked a 3D viewport and you have a thick line next to the window because you have the walls set to 0.35. If needed i control all through the viewport and by class.

With all the same lineweight i get a better hidden line render. My final renders I very rarely have the lines turned on.
