    Two different materials merge in Course View

    I am using revit structure 2017 and I am modeling a CMU stem wall with a concrete pier, but in plan view the pier shows up with a CMU hatch. the pier and stem wall start at the same level but the pier ends 4'4" short of the top of CMU. the view is cut through the pier and stem wall. the material is set correctly for both the wall and the revit column (the pier is concrete cast-in-place with a section hatch set to none). Does anybody have any idea on how to solve the hatch problem short of using an override.

    All of the piers in the model are showing the same hatch, but when the view is switched to Medium (instead of Course) the hatch goes away. :banghead:

    So you dont want to see the hatch in coarse mode?
    Coarse mode hatching is in the wall properties:

      the concrete pier is hatching as if it were CMU in the course view. I don't want the Construction Documents to appear to be showing just one material type for the walls and piers. just the stem wall is CMU, so I would like the CMU hatching to show in stem wall and the pier to blank.

      maybe I should have posted this in the structural part, but seemed more of a Revit question than a structural question.

        It could also be the 'Low Wall' feature where walls under a certain height (more correctly the top being a certain distance from the cut plane) show as a projection rather than cut.

        I used to be high on life, until I realised it was cut with Morons.

          I never heard of this low walls behavior but have run into several time, thanks for link

          But the wall in this case is behaving like it is supposed to, it is the pier (column) that is not acting correctly. The work around that I came up with was to adjust the view cutline to be right above the pier and that seemed to work.

            Are the Wall and the pier Joined? Is the Pier a Structural Column or a Column Family.

              a structural column. I am not sure you can join items with different material types, but no they are not joined.
