    Window shows on cut plane

    Hi, as you see on the image i have a complicated situation with the levels on elevation. Window and door components are falling in between the levels and I have to show door cut on plan. I applied view range on top of the door and adjusted heights so that it cuts only door and walls. Why do I still see the window from above?

    I find that provided my window intersects the project view's cut plane it will display as if cut at the level of the View Range > Cut Plane AS DEFINED IN THE FAMILY EDITOR. Then there can be an added complexity of a nested family (eg a panel) within the window family (but I am not sure of the mechanics of that yet).

    To get the View Range within the family editor: Go to the plan view; on the Properties dialog, select Family: Windows and change it to Floor Plan: Floor Line; now you can see the View Range button.

    If you post your project file I'll check it out.

        Hello Murios,

        Your window is within the View Range for your Level 1 plan view. Your Primary Range Top is set to 7' 6" above Level 1, but your window is only 6' and a bit above it. Because it sits in there it will show. Either lift the window (probably not an option), or lower your Primary Range Top. Alternatively you could set a Plan Region.

        I do note that the file does not match the image you posted above.

        Hope this helps.

          Hi Anthony, I applied plan region above the door area in level 1 and set the range top to be 1' and cut plane to be 1' I need to see only walls and door cut, but that window element is still showing up.

            Just make your plan region a little bit bigger.

              Who even think that that could be the reason.
