Drawing line weights

      This is probably a easy question for some of you to answer, When I print my drawings, if I make the drawing a wire frame, it blows up the lineweight on the drawing making it look like a cartoon, blowing out any detail. Is there a quick way to adjust this property on my current parts, and if there is, adjusted the properties of all new files to have lighter. The pictures are screenshots, not actual exported files. One is displaying the lineweights.

      Hi SpeedTechPerformance

      I could reproduce your observations and have noticed that whatever changes we try to incorporate to the lineweight through the style options, the line doesnt seem to change. This appears to be a bug that I am investigating further.

      In the meantime, as a temporary workaround, you can control the weight of line using SpaceClaim options. Please go to File--> SpaceClaim options --> General -->scroll down to linestyle options and change the magnitude of "Default thin lineweight" . You may reduce it to a lower value and verify the same graphically to see if the entered magnitude works best for you.

      Thanks & Regards,

        Gaurav_ANSYS Great!  This answers my question ... mostly. There might be a bug with the lineweight on the hatched cross section border. I adjusted all the options to thin in the options menu and the border persist on being thick. See the pictures.
