Please review the attached file and let me know what you think. I don't want to see the flooring pattern under the counter, island, etc. Is this possible. As you can see you can see it under the BBQ on the rear deck. Any ideas? I duplicated the default wood flooring and only changed the width of the board. Cheers in advance, Alan

There are really a couple of things going on in your question. First, the answer to blocking the floor pattern from appearing under the countertops is to make sure that either the C-top family you are using has the visability of the top turned on in plan view, or has a filled region as part of the family. The easiest way is to open the family, click on the C-top geometry in a 3D view and make sure its visability is set to display in plan view. Save and reload into your project. Doing this will block out the floor pattern. Second though is the larger question as it comes to BIM. Does your hardwood floor really go under the kitchen cabinets? I doubt it as the cabinets are usually installed first and then the hardwood. I would tend to model this situation with a floor that is comprised of the common elements (9.5" TJI & 3/4" Sturdi-floor for example) then add another floor over the top of that that is the hardwood and it only goes up to the base of the cabinets. This comes closer to the the way it happens in real life and leads to better estimating/material take-off potential. HTH Tom

tomdinmn, Both options work very well. I decided to go with the later as I also need to see the base cabinets in plan view. Thanks for your help, Alan
