I am trying by now to configure my revit files tenplate export to dwg.
I pretend: 1) Preserve duct, piping, mechanical equipmente in others with the same colors, layer thiknesses, layer type (example dashdot, continuous,...) Line type scale.
2) Each duct type system as filters (Example: supply, return, exaust, special filters for sanitary instalations,...) has an addicional layer for each one of them,
3) I want that round ducts happear with center line at dahdot
4) I usually export from hidden line, and Î want to preserve it in cad file as I saw in revit
Trying to get this: I have actionned the issue in the template of export dwg that gives me a layer for each type,
I have choose the option in export settings of get as I see in revit instead of the predefined layers that we have in the first menu at the export dwg settings, I have defined an overhead line for center line at round ducts and with a filter I made round duct type families as ghost surfces I am having several problems with:1) When I export to dwg almost all of the time I got to make a recover or I loose all the file!!!
2) All tees, elbows in others duct accessories has none center line and are being exported as blocks with a deficient presentation color for example in a green duct the respectve tee gets a litle bit white. I have been exploding all of these block to get good presentation results. It is very frustating.
3)With the configuration I gave to get my center lines in round ducts, I have another tedious and frustating problem, When I have two round ducts crossing each other in the same ceiling and at diferent offsets, indwg file I see all lines below the duct above as blank lines and in very small group of lines. These force me to make trim over trim everytime this happens.
I hope some of you give me the help I am in need.
Thank you all,Rui
