Revit Linework Tip

March 26, 2011

Ever had the edge of your 3D geometry not properly showing and you want to use the “Linework” tool to change the edge attribute or just bring it forward?

When edges of elements get buried in other geometry they can become unselectable and the linework tool becomes useless.  What’s nice about the Linework tool is that once you change the geometry’s edge value Revit treats the line as a symbolic and brings it forward of the geometry.  So even if the edge is buried in the geometry the Linework tool will make if visible.

To get around the inability to select an edge switch to wireframe>Linework the edge> and return to Hidden line and your line is now visible.

The Linework tool can be found under the Modify Tab.

Draw the Line!!
