View Depth Override

This button is perfect for saving you hundreds of hours in re-creating line weight for elevation views.  By following the simple / easy procedure down below, you can quickly change all your line weights in elevations, sections, and blow up details within seconds.  This procedure is applicable in Revit 2018 to Revit 2022.

Step 1:  To begin, find a view that you would like to edit the depth and line weights too. This can be for an elevation or section.  In this example, we will use an elevation marker.  Click on the elevation marker triangle to select the properties of the elevation marker.

Step 2: Once you have clicked on the elevation marker, proceed to the properties dialog and scroll down to “Far Clipping”.  By default, this is shown to No Clip.  Change the “No Clip” option to “Clip with Line”.  This will show a boundary of how far you can see in the view.

Step 3:  This boundary can be adjusted using the arrow tools to set the maximum distance seen.  As a result, our elevation tool will break it up into 5 zones.  Keep these zones in mind for the following steps.

Step 4:  Once you have understood these boundaries, proceed to open up the elevation view and navigate to the appropriate View Depth Override Tool under BIMeta Tab.

Step 5: After you successfully click on the View Depth Override Tool, a dialog will appear with several line weight options.  The previous zones shown before can be seen in this dialog box.  The numbers coordinate with the line weights set in the project so please be aware that quality may be different due to line weight settings and scale.

Step 6: Once you have successfully established your line weights and clicked on the “Execute” button, you will see your results change.  If you need to change these values, you can do so quickly by just clicking back onto the View Depth Override Tool.

Results Vary Based On Scale And Line Weights Set Within Project.
