    i think beams supposed to be in ceiling floor plan not in normal floor plan, if you want to show it in floor plan just check view range make its height greater like 2 meter.

    Ok beams are below the level to be able to see it you most adjust your view range "view depth" setting.

    Beams are not visibel-view-range.jpg Beams are not visibel-beam-1.jpgBeams are not visibel-beam-show.jpg

    in addition i add beam at -600 below the level 1 to be able to see it i need to adjust my view depth to -700

    Beams are not visibel-beam-600.jpgBeams are not visibel-beam-600-show.jpg

    or try to check your visibility setting maybe structural framing is off.

    I have tried it what you writing, it just dosn't works.
    The beam is only visible if I put the cut plane offset to cut through the beam 2600 mm above the floor. This means simply that the rest does not appear correct. I want the bar to show up as hidden lines over cutplane, so I can keep cutplane of 1200 mm.Beams are not visibel-cut-plane-1200-mm.jpgBeams are not visibel-cut-section.jpgBeams are not visibel-cut-plane-2600-mm.jpg

    Set the cutplane to 2600mm, use the Linework tool to override Beam visibility and set the Cutplane back to 1200mm.
    You should keep seeing the Linework.

    If this doesn't work, create a duplicate view from the level above. Set the viewrange so that you see the beams
    Use as Underlay in the view you need to see the beam, and use Linework to show the beam. Turn the underlay off again.

    So you have a plan that you want to see beams in. Go to 3D and orient that 3D to that view. If you can not see your beams in 3D adjust your section box until you can. This will tell you where your view ranges need to be.

    If when you orient you can see your beams, then you have a VG setting or something is covering up your beams (IE a floor), but your 3D view should also show you if there is something in the way of your beams.
