In AutoCAD MEP 2013, when try to create a vertical section and select the "MEP Section & Elevation - Hidden" set, it does not display any vertical duct (see attached image).
In fact, this set seems to use the plan view and if I select any set that uses the plan view (instead of model) does this.
Am I missing something obvious?
I am using the 'Aecb Model (UK Ctb)' template.
Scap that. This only fixes the removal of hidden lines. if you still want the hidden lines, then any vertical is still not shown.
You still have issues with this Autodesk and this is causing me delays.
Getting ticked off with receiving software that's clearly not ready for release. You can't rush these things!
Autodesk have confirmed this as a bug, but not getting any answers of when this will be fixed.
This is a major issue and has brought some of our projects to a halt.
Not happy with Autodesk at the moment....
Service Pack 1 seems to have fixed this issue but it has introduced another issue with section views, where again when creating a vertical section, any duct that is in a block or xref is ignored and not drawn. All equipment (e.g. dampers) are drawn as expected, just no duct
Horizontal sections are not affected.
We can get around this issue, by exploding blocks or xrefs, but this can take time on a big drawing.
I have just raised another support ticket for this and I expect this to be solved urgently, considering the time frame it took to fix the other issue.
