    One of the tools in Revit that gets overlooked sometimes is the ‘Thin Line Tool’.  In this blog I will show you how to use this simple, yet powerful tool.

    Locate the Thin Line Tool on your quick access tool bar, it normally comes in by default. If you delete by accident you can reinsert it on the View Tab, just right click and add to toolbar.

    The thin line tool turns on and off the line weights in Revit, the result is that thin lines will always remain thin no matter how far you zoom in on them. However, as you zoom out the difference is not noticeable.

    See the difference below, the structure of the walls and floors are detailed more clearly.
