    Stacked wall visibility above cut plane

    I have a stacked wall that has an overhanging element on the outside which occurs above the typical floor plan cut plane (7'-2"±). We would like to see this represented in the floor plans in some way. Here's a section:

    I see several options, none of which I like much:
    1) Change the cut plane to cut through the upper portion of the wall. But then I would have to have a bunch of plan regions to show the doors properly.
    2) Underlay the RCP of the floor so at least the panel above is visible, but then the risk of other elements appearing as well.
    3) Underlay the RFP of the floor and use the linework tool to make the panel plane an "overhead" linestyle (then remove the underlay so the rest of the RCP doesn't show).

    These are all view specific and manual overrides (well, #2 maybe not, but too much possibility of "undesirable" elements showing up requiring manually hiding).

    At this point, I'm implementing option #3, but would welcome more "managed" or "automatic" solutions if there are any.

    Thanks!

    I would personally use #3 also, but if your really not keen then perhaps model lines which are locked to the wall edge? but this could cause issues with over constraining and generally weighing the model down.

      using the linework tool is different than a model/symbolic line. Much more efficient and it adjusts with the model element. Yes you can lock the lines to the object but why go to the extra work when the linework tool works better?

        I completely agree! I was just trying to throw some other ideas out there, but I guess the main benefit would be that this line would then show in all views and not just the one in which it has been drawn in.
