    Revit Visibility Hierarchy

    Hi All,


    I am having a graphics related issue and looking for some advice here,
    Basically I have a room with stud partition walls and various equipment around the room, some of the equipment is hosted on walls and the others are generic components that are aligned to the wall face. For the general arrangement drawing I would like to the equipment/furniture to be plotted a light grey. When i print this drawing out the light grey furniture/equipment "wins" over the graphic of the wall, see attached image 1.






    Is there any setting that can be used or applied so that the wall always "wins" over the other elements in the drawing as shown in the attached image 2(something like the "bring to front" or "send to back" option for model elements as opposed to 2d linework and regions)?




    I have the cut plan set to above most of the furniture/equipment and it appears to be correct when viewing it within Revit using the thin lines display but the problem occurs once printed to PDF or to the plotter.


    Any help would be much appreciated


    Thanks


    Paul

    Ela,
    I reverted back and changed the furniture layer to black (Not what I wanted but it was a better result that what was happening above).
    It works fine if the cut plain of the drawing does not cut through any furniture items(or greyed out items) but this is not always achievable, particularly if there is floor to ceiling type furniture.
    The short answer is that I haven't found a solution yet and I'm sure it will pop up as an issue again for me.
