View Range - Foundation Plans

629 Views, 12 Replies

How do I display elements that are above my cut plane? I have a foundation plan that needs to show foundation walls, wall footings, isolated footings and columns. The top of wall footings are at -2'-8" the top of isolated footings are at -8". The bottom of foundation walls are at -2'-8" the top of foundation walls are at -8". The bottom of the columns are at -8". How do I set my view range so that it shows the foundation walls in section but also shows my columns?

Thank you

at what elevation is your cut plane set?
yo need to set your bottom range at least -3'-0" and your view depth at the same elevation or lower

That is the essence of my problem. If I set the cut plane at -1'-0" then my foundation wall shows correctly (in section) but my columns don't display. If I set the cut plane at 0'-0" then the columns show but the foundation wall is in projection (no material hatch). Is there a way I can set my cut plane at -1'-0" and show the column graphics from above the cut plane?

thanks

I think your cut plane should be set at +1'-0"

Ok, thanks. How then do I apply the material hatch to my foundation wall? When the cut plane passes through the wall it will show a cross hatch for masonry and a stippled hatch for concrete. When the cut plane is set at +1'-0" then the foundation wall shows as projection (no hatch).

The only thing I can think of is doing a plan region around your wall and changing the cut plane there.

Here is a screen shot... Does anybody know what the Column Symbolic Offset controls?

This shows the cut plane at -1'-0". The walls show correctly, but the columns above are not displayed.
