    Graphical Representation

    Hello all,

    I have a steel column and I want to represent this in the floor plan with hidden lines instead of continuous line.
    Do you know how I can manage the representation (hidden lines, thickness of line etc.)?

    Thank you in advance!

    in the column family you will see a symbolic line you can edit the line style here in the family for the symbolic line if one was added to your family.

    You will probably also need to modify the "object styles" (Under the manage tab) in your Project Template and scroll down to columns and open out the + symbol and modify the symbolic lines line style, line thickness, color etc as required.

    You will need to do this for framing also so that you get a similar result for beams/rafters/purlins/joists etc.

      Oh it's a little bit complicated..

      I would like general, not only for the columns, to change the graphical representation of the elements. For example to have Hidden lines when the element is under the level that I want, Continuous line when I have cut section , continuous line with bigger thickness when the column start from the level that I want.

      How I can do this? In the V/G there are a lot of settings in each category that i can change.

        If the element is "hidden" (ie obscured by another element) then it should automatically show hidden lines.
        Check that your view is set to "hidden line" and make sure there is no transparency on your slab for example (if this is the object obscuring your column or framing)

        If you want to have it on "wire frame" view setting then you need to manage everything with filters.
        Filters filters and more filters.

        This way you set your "projection" line of the columns to hidden line style.
        The same for framing.

        Once you get this showing as you want, make a view Template and then you can apply that Template to other views.

          What about the line weight? If I have 2 different columns...can I change the line weight only to one? I cannot find a way to do this.

          thank you!

            yes if you use filters you can.
            filter by "type" equals "columnA" for one lineweight and "Type" equals "ColumnB" for the other you can set the lineweight for each individual filter

              It depends if those columns are of a different type or not, then use a proper parameter (instance vs type) of that column in your view filter. If it is just a single column in a project then you can select a column > right click > Override Graphics In View > by Element. For consistent overrides, use view templates and filters.

                  wait so its the same type of column, no difference at all between that and the other column? Then what is the point of a different graphical representation if there is no difference?

                    The point is that I want in my drawing to have the one column with a thickness 'A' because it is cutting..and the other column with a thickness 'B' because it starts from this level.

                    I don;t know if it make sense. I did it with right click in the element > Override graphics in view > by element.
