I am trying to do produce an image in 3d using the 'sketcy' visual style. Unless you guys can correct me it seems impossible to control the line weights in 'sketcy' visual style?
I am trying to avoid having to take the model into Impression as that just adds further complications and extra time into the equation.
It seems to me that 'sketcy' has a lot of potential due to the fact that you can control the 'jitter', 'occulded edges', but it seems illogical in a cad package not to be able to control line weights?

Nestly, thanks very much for the answer by the way of a video link - much appreciated.
However, I perhaps did not explain the issue as clearly as I should. If you put a 3d drawing (with a reasonable level of complexity) into the viewport it becomes impossible to go through and manually change all the line weights as per your video link.
What I am trying to establish is how you get the level manager to work within the viewport. Having the level manager work would be the most efficient way of controlling line weights.
Try creating a new viewport and using VP overrides to asign the lineweight by layer. I did it in an 8MB 3D drawing, and it's too slow to work in that mode practically, but it would be OK for creating plotted output. Just make sure you're computer/video card has enough horsepower.
Got it - that worked a treat many thanks.
Seems a shame however that you can only adjust the jitter on the entire image not on each different layer? As such I suspect it may be better to use Google Sketch up instead?
