    Modify cut profile line type

    Is there any way to change the line type of a cut profile to invisible? I need the highlighted line to disappear.

    use the linewortk tool, set to invisible. Click on the segment you want invisible. Adjust the endpoints of the Linework line if they do not automatically conforum to just the piece you'd like.

      I tried that first. It won't let me select the lines of the cut profile. I can select every other line, though. :laugh:

        Why not simply have the correct profile to begin with? That is a fairly quick change to make...

          Yep, I usually do that. This slab has multiple levels, and the clean ups (although correct) looked like crap since it was cleaning up at the haunches. Not what the client wanted. Not to mention they decided to start forming the foundation prior to me even starting the plans. So, to save time, I took the haunches off of the profile. Of course, he wants them in the details, though.

          In hind sight, maybe I should have messed around with the view range a little more. But I didn't, so I'm stuck where I'm at. I figured it would be an easy fix with a cut profile. I guess not. I guess I"ll just have to hide it with a region.

            In 3D, did you add it as a Slab Edge, or as part of the Foundation (Wall) ?

              They are slab edges. And I also have all of my interior beams (which used to have haunches as well, but I changed those, too) as a simple parametric extrusion I can adjust the depth and width of.

              I should have got a screen shot of the clean up. It basically had a 45 degree lines in the corners where the haunches cleaned up. Which is correct. But looks like crap.

              I'll only have 4 or 5 actual details. The rest of the sections will reference those details. So, it's manageable. Not very Revit like, but manageable.

                I generally do slab edges as Beams (but I'm working with the Structural Engineer in the same model). Other approach of course is in-place so you can then ensure the cleanup happens the way you want it to...
