    Question How to match revit lineweight to my ctb?

    Hi everyone,

    My company is migrating from cad to revit. What i did is match my revit lineweight with our cad ctb assigned lineweight per color index. Everything is in order, i make a simple project
    in revit and export it into cad and map according to our standard layer. Then, i printed the revit file and the exported cad file and the print out line thickness is different. The revit file is bit thicker compare to my exported file. Please, help me to match it. Where did i lack?
    Thank you in advance.

    In the Export setup, you can assign a color (by number) to each exported layer based on your desired layer colors.

    I managed to setup up to this stage (Export setup). I mean, from revit lineweight, object style and export setup everything are in accordance with our standard from autocad (ctb, color index assigned lineweight). Our revit lineweight is same with our autocad ctb lineweight. After that, i made a simple project in revit the convert it into cad. I checked the converted cad file layer to make sure everything to our cad standard. Then, i printed the simple from revit and the other from the cad file (exported from revit). The result here was a difference of thickness on the printed layout (paper) between revit an cad. The printed layout from revit is thicker than the printed layout from exported cad file. I dont know where is the problem? Is it possible the problem is the printer?
