    View Range

    Hi all,

    in my project window is 7' height & sunshade in 8' height. I want to show both in my floor plan. but I have a view range problem. if I set my view range in 7', the sunshade is not visible... if I set my view range in 8.6", the window is not visible...

    I want to show both...
    Any solution:banghead:

    Put an invisible line vertically into the sunshade family. When the cut plane touches that, the entire family becomes visible.

      Another option is to set the view underlay to the level above and look up. If you don't want to see everything that shows from that level, use the linework tool to pick out the lines from the sunshade and switch the underlay off. The lines will still update if you move the sunshade.

        You can also create a "Plan Region" which allow you to change the cut plane in a specific area of your project without modifying the rest of your draw!

          I think that the problem is that the two items are in the same position, so the plan region would have the same problem as the view range.

            So the workaround "Put an invisible line vertically into the sunshade family" can do the trick eventually as @DavidLarson
            already suggested

              Yes, that will work. I just added two other options.

                That works for sure, I've already used that workaround for a similar problem!!:coffee:

                  I know that it works - I've also used it. However, it's not always the best option, as it will always show if the invisible line extends into the view range. In some cases a user may want to show the windows, but not the sun shade above. Then an alternative option may be a solution.

                    well what if you use the linework tool? change the view to set up to look up to the top and then you just need to add some thin lines to show the sunshade or a dashed one if you prefer! that may works too! what do you think?
