    grids dont appear at the foundation level

    hello to everyone,

    I would like to know why the grids ain´t showing at the foundation level... I have the grids extended throught them as you can throught the elevation. See picture above.

    best regards

    Their 3D extent must cross over the level to show up. Most likely their 2D extent does but the 3D is above that level.

    I think that you are not correct, becuase as you can see throught the picture, the grids are extendend throught the foundations and at the end of the line you can see the 3D mark. The following link shows what I am saying:

    What I wrote is factually correct, but the patient is still dead. Your circumstance just means something else is preventing them from being visible. I started with the fundamental one, if the extents don't cross, no grids. Are you familiar with this thread/check list?

    Ok, sorry for my ignorance, but assuming that the problem is the fact that the 2d extent cross the foundation level, but the 3d extent dont, how can i see or set the 3d extent to cross the foundation level. My problem is that I thought that i only had to extent the grids until tey cross the levels in the elevation in order to show in the blueprints.

    Best regards

    There are many ways to hide elements. The link I provided earlier is a checklist of sorts that might help narrow down the issue in your case. Go to the first post in the thread or you can read my own list HERE.

    @Steve_Stafford, I am sorry but in the website that you gave me it doesn´t show any topic about hidden grids... I would really appreciate if you could help me in this subject since, as you may see throught the picture that I am uploading in this link, it seems that the 3d extents cross over the foundations, or am I wrong?
    Also, as you may see throught the picture that I am uploading in the following link:
    best regards, in the visibility graphics overrides, you can see that the grids are ticked, so they are active.

    You are refering to the bulb that is responsible to show hidden and unhidden elements?
