I have run pipe within the pump station.  Now when I create a 3D view to place on the drawing, all my pipes are transparent.  My walls, roof, floor, etc. are transparent to show the pipe and equipment.  Anyone know why the pipes are transparent???

Things to check in your 3D view:


1. Make sure your Visual style is Hidden line or shaded.


2. To make the walls floors, etc. opaque, in the properties for the veiw, change teh Discipline to Coordination and in visibility graphics change the architectural model to halftone (if you want that look).


See if those work.



Yay I'm talking about Revit and stuff
