I've brought in a Revit Structural model via IFC as a hotlink module. After some back and forth translation issues between Revit reference planes vs Archicad Stories I think we have it. However, as a HLM I cannot adjust pen colors. I can do this with Graphic Overrides globally but when looking at the model in the Archicad section view I want the cut elements to be a heavier pen than the contour/outline pen when the element is beyond. Is there a way to achieve this?

I think this may be possible to do with the combination of an additional Pen Set in which the Pen Weights are made heavier, and Graphic Overrides. When defining Graphic Override Rules, when specifying the Override Style, you have the option to override only the Pen color, or both Pen Color and Weight.
But it would be best if you could post a few screenshots of the current state of the file and the desired state as well.
