i think u did not open pblm.

You’re creating new curves in Revit. Those curves don’t inherit the properties of the CAD file just because that’s what was used to create them. You need to now assign the same line pattern, color, and weight to your new curves as the CAD layers.

hi nick,
thanks for the reply.i thought,it would be possible to create with dynamo nodes.
what is the purpose of cad layer object syles nodes.

CADLayer ObjectStyle gives you the layer properties of the CAD import in Revit. ImportInstance.SetObjectStyle allows you to override those properties in Revit. CAD.CurvesFromCADLayers gets the curve geometry into Dynamo and then DetailCurve.ByCurve converts that geometry to a Revit detail curve. That detail curve is just a plain curve. You still need to apply the same ObjectStyle properties to the new curve in order for it to look the same visually.

Basically, you have a curve and you have properties of that curve. You created a matching curve. Now you need to create (and apply) matching properties.

sorry for the late reply. thanks a lot for helping.
i will try that one.ImportInstance.setobjectstyle.nodes

That’s for overriding the CAD import. If you want to change the visual of the curve then you need to override its graphics or use a line type with the same properties as the import layer.
