Can someone please help me comprehend?:
Level 4 = 66.250
Level 5= 69.190
I have a Lift shaft overrun roof that sticks above Level 4 by 1700mm with a covering slab – Generic 200mm. Therefore the distance from the top of slab to Level 5 = 1265mm.
The Level 5 view range parameters are all associated with Level 5. The Top & Cut Offset Levels are 600/300 respectively.
The problem is I can only get the lift shaft roof slab to not be visible if I set the Bottom Offset to only -45!
With it set to this value the View Depth Offset works as expected, showing the slab if at -1265 or lower, but if I amend the Bottom Offset to anything lower than -45 changing the View Depth makes no difference!
What am I not understanding?
In level 5 plan view, do you want to see the slab that covers the shaft, or not? If not, where are you going to show that slab? In Level 4 floor plan? That needs to be clarified. I would show the walls of the shaft at the level 4 floor plan, and the slab at the Level 5 floor plan, but it depends how you want to show it.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the reply, but I'm not sure of it's relevance to my Q. I know where I want to show the slab & I thought i made it clear, but that's not what I asked.
I'm trying to understand why the Bottom offset has to be set to only -45 to get it the slab to hide seeing as the slab is over 1200mm below that.
Just to be clear, my previous reply was directied to Alfredo.
ccolins, I've seen this image before, but I still don't see the significance of the 45mm. If I set both the Bottom & View depth to -500mm the slab still displays even though it's well below that level.
"The problem is I can only get the lift shaft roof slab to not be visible if I set the Bottom Offset to only -45!"
Are you able to help with my query?
You can always try using a Plan Region to set the View Range, in a limited area just where needed
independently of the main view.
Yes, ccollins, that's one of a few work arounds to hide it that I've considered but according to the sketch you posted, as it's below the bottom/view depth I shouldn't have to do any workarounds.
