    Contour Lines (half)hidden by topography surface?

    While setting up a template with some custom line patterns, I've created a very steep topography for visual control of the patterns and lineweights of the primary and secondary contour lines. Now, I've just noticed that some of the line width is being obscured by the topography surface it self... WTF... Anyone else noticed this? :beer:

    Sorry, can't help you on this one. In Holland we don't do steep...

      Yah I know... Denmark is about as flat as Holland, probably why I never noticed it before...

      But really - It´s kinda difficult to control the line weights when they are dependent on the slope :crazy: Guess we´ll just have to make sure that it stays flat.

        What if you override just the site´s display properties as transparent. Will that fix the issue?

          Nope... Only thing that "fixes" it is setting the view to wireframe... Not really a valid fix though.
          Besides, to me it´s not really a big deal, since our country is flat as a pancake
          Oh well, off to send a Bug Repport to Autodesk :beer:

            This is only on the screen within Revit, i.e. it doesn't affect the printed output. The screenshot attached shows the result in PDF next to the live Revit.

              are you sure it's a bug?

              The original picture looks like your primary contour line is following the x & y co-ordinates perfectly along the z axis. Being a W I D E R line it should occupy more than 1 pixel width, the centre of which seems perfectly aligned in your first screenshot?

                Cool, you´re right So now it´s even less of an issue - But still think that what we see on the screen should be WYSIWYG, otherwise there´s not much point in having the Thin Lines toggle
                Or maybe we should ask for a third option? 1. Thin Lines ON, 2. Thin Lines OFF, 3. Half Line Weights ON

                Ehh... yah, the center is aligned, but half of the line is still obscured by the topography surface...

                Heck - Only noticed this because I was setting up line patterns and line weights in a new template, and was puzzled why adding to the thickness of the primarily contours had no or little affect. No big deal really... :beer:
