    window shows profile on top of the window in the model

    Hi,

    I have created a window. On top of the window is a profile that covers the top of the window.
    In the project the window iscut, but I also see the profile on top of the window!?

    The only thing I've could come up with is the view range, but it's set in both the window and the family like this:
    Top: associated level, offset 2300mm
    Cut plane: associated level, offset: 1200mm
    Bottom: associated level, offset: 0
    view depth level: associated level, offset 0

    the only temporary solution I can find is turning the profile of in plan.
    But I don't really want that since I want to be able to see the profile in the level above.

    on the left you see the window, on the left another window with the profile on top...

    this is the section of the windows where you see the profile on top.
    (I want to be able to see that line from the level above)

    Thanks!

    In the family editor, pick the top profile, and under Visibility Settings, check "Plan/RCP" and un-check "When cut in Plan/RCP".
    This should make the profile not visible in the plan view where the window is cut, and visible in the plan view from the level above.

        since it's already solved not a biggie, but still: did you by any chance draw the window directly on ref level without using a sill height parameter in the family editor?

          Yes I did, since the sill height should be 0.
          Are you saying I should create a window with a sill-height of 200 for example and then set the sill height to 0 when I place the window?
          I tried creating a new window like that but it still shows the profile on top.

            you should, although in this instance it would probably not matter...
