I would like to create a piece of furniture and have it appear in the RCP but not in the plan.

I could manipulate visibility graphics on each view, but that is not something I would like to do for various reasons.

Therefore, I would rather the family be 2 1/2D and not show up in Plan.

Thank you,

EB

The RCP is a plan.

Some more description of what you want to do would help.

Yes, the RCP is a plan, but I think the program takes some effort to distinguish between RCP and Plan views in the browser. Is that difference only in name? Is there any way to build families that act differently in these two types of views?

 Thanks

Ebram, i know we have talked about this already. But i just thought of something...

Remember how i was saying you could build the 3d model in the family and just turn all of its visibility setting off so you could only see the 2d lines??

well i can think of a few ways to try it... making the family "hosted by face" and just host it to the ceiling, and change it later...

 or try turing the visibility setting in the family to rcp only. and make sure that your view range in the project is set low enough to see it. i dont see why that wouldnt work?? anyone oppose??

You didn't add any information on what you want to see.

 

RCP are "reflected"... that means you are looking down but as if there is a mirror you are looking at - thus seeing what is above the view cut.  If your furniture is cut, it will show in the RCP if on in VG.
