I´m planning on moving from ADT to Revit.
How do I set up a custom lineweight settings for printing.
I use acad.ctb in autocad to control the lineweight by colors. Is there anyway I can do something similiar in revit?

The beauty of Revit is that you aren't dealing with ctb files. You are dealing with real line weights that are directly associated with the objects when they are plotted. For Autodesk Revit components, set the projection, and, if applicable, cut Line Weights for the category. This enables you to control the display of geometry when it is cut and not cut without the need to create separate subcategories. For imported geometry layers, set the appropriate line weight. I hope this is helpful.

My response to this question is always. Do your first project with the default settings. Revit looks pretty good out of the box. Then you can decide what needs to be adjusted.
