    Elevations

    I have walls that have pilaster (columns that stick out of the wall) and they stick out of the wall into the inside face....

    I have an elevation that elevates the outside face, this elevation shows a solid wall and does not have dashed (hidden lines) where the pilaster is at...why does it not show this? If I cut a section is shows (a little too well), but why does this not work in elevation?

    I guess it is because elevations, by default, do not show hidden lines. Have you tried the Show Hidden Lines tool?

      Could you post an example so that we can get a better idea of what it is you are after?

      Thanks

        The Show Hidden Lines tool works well, I forgot all about that tool thanks! The only issue I have with it is that I have to maunally do it and I would like it to just be done...but oh well!

        The posted doc shows the conditions I have...like I said the hidden line tools works great and gives me the results that I want, but its a manual process rather than an automatic one.

          If it is a type of view that you need frequently, perhaps you could set up a view template for that purpose, in which walls are transparent, and columns use hidden lines. That would be the closest you can get to obtain this automatically.

            Alfredo, thats a good suggestion, but I do rebar detailing so when the wall is on wireframe all my bars show up....thanks for the suggestion! I think the Show Hidden Lines tool works well for what I am looking for!
