    Unhappy Transparent Glass not transparent in Section View

    Quick question:

    I have a skylight, that has glass set to be 100% transparent, in my 3D view it's working fine, but when I have an elevation view or section view of the same, it shows solid, meaning I have some steel tubes behind it I'd like to see in section and I can't because I can't see through the glass.

    Any idea how I can fix that, without making my whole view wireframe?
    I've attached a screenshot, I hope helps explain.Pulsa en la imagen para verla en tamaño completo

    Yep, there was a thread on this issue on AUGI. I think you have to select the windows in your section, then modify the VG by element to make them transparent. The problem is, the frames become transparent as well.

    I'm not sure if there is a way to make just the glass transparent.

    Elisa, you should have a look here

    My personal preference is to have the glass on a separate subcategory, which can be turned off with VG

    Elisa, "Transparency" only works in true 3D views. You can create a 3D view and then "Align" to a Section or Elevation, but tagging and such are limited in 3D views, so mostly this is an appropriate way to do presentation elevations or sections only.

    However, in this case you might find the Hidden Lines tool more to your liking. You select the skylight, then the items behind and Revit applies the Hidden Lines style to those items. If you really wanted to make them appear screened, you could even override the value of Structural Framing/Hidden Lines to gray and solid, but that will affect all hidden Structural Framing in that view, so it might not work as you would like.

    Ohanks everyone! I think I need to do a sub-category, because it's not a window, there is no framing around it, so if I turn it off i won't see the outline of it at all and I need to see it.
    Gordon, I had tried using the Hidden Lines tool that was my default tool to go to, but it didn't work, I'm not sure why.

    Update:: Ok, so doing a sub-category didn't work, because I can't make only that sub-category transparent, I didn't realize that.
    What I did, was add Symbolic Lines and changed the Visibility Settings to only show in Front/Back on one side and only show in Left/Right on the other side and it works fine!

    I think what Gordon was refering to was,see attached, located on "view"tab. First select component you would like see the object through, then select the object you want to see.

    True, you can´t make the "glass" sub-category transparent using VG - But you can turn if OFF (When it´s transparent, it´s not visible anyways )

    BTW, have noticed that when doing this with OOTB windows, it´s neccecary to delete the initial "opening" in the window family, and replace it with a Void that cuts the wall... Not sure why, but that´s the only way I can get it working

    If the project isn't too large, one can temporarily hide the windows and use the linework tool on objects that need to be visible. instead of selecting each line of the object, you can tab untill the whole object is selected.

    Then turn your windows back on.

    Works well unless you want both the windows and the object to have colour....

    This is actually related to the window opening in the family. By default it is set to not be transparent in elevation. I've noticed though that setting this transparent for elevations by picking the opening and checking in the option for elevation makes no difference as the glass itself is not transparent in an elevation. Setting the glass to a subcategory and turning off that subcategory in the project is the best way to go about this with the opening set in the family to be transparent.

    Yes, I tried that tool and it wouldn't work.
