    Structural Members and Masked Regions

    Yet another structural issue. I created a work plane. Set my beams and purlins using the work plane so they are all at the correct angles and level, etc. It worked great except for one issue, I'm getting lines where the purllin covers the beam in some area, and not lines (which is what I want) in other areas. See the attached image. The bottom horizontal member is correct, the other two are wrong.

    The funny thing is when I offset the purlin 5'-3", which is my spacing, it's creates the problem. I tested the same purlin and offset it 12" at a time, all the way up to 10', and none of them did the problem. What gives?

    I'd say this is a problem with your view settings. I think that your view is set to show the beams in a hidden line style. The bottom image just happens to be on a place where the hidden lines style is blank, the second shows a part of the dash, the third shows a full dash.

      Nope, all beams and purlins are set to solid.

        Can you use "Remove Hidden Line"-command on it? Or change the scale of the view and see what happens. If this changes the appearence, it's definitely a view setting. But if I'm not mistaking, you won't find the solution in the General View Settings. I don't know where you will find them out of the top of my head. Is it possible to post the / a projectfile with an example? What do you use, RAC or RST?

          Hidden line and changing scale have no affect. I'm using RAC. The file is too large to upload.

            okay, then I'm out of ideas... at least without the file to fiddle in. is it possible to create an empty drawing and reproduce this?

              Well, I just tried to create it in a new project. I just added a few beams and a few purlins and it works like it should. Wierd. I definately have something screwed up in my project. Great.

                Okay, the plot thickens. I created them in a new project with the default template and it worked. I tried it again using the commercial template, and it's doing it wrong. The commercial template is the one I used for my project. There's a bug in the template somewhere.

                Here's the file.

                    Is there any way to take a project started on one template and transfer it to another template?
