Why some elements above the cut plane (view range properties) does not display in hidden line style? Elements between cut plane and top clip plane shouldnt display in hidden line? Only my railings are correct.... Thanks.

Can you attach a jpeg of what you are talking about and possibly a screen shot of your view range settings? If I could see those I think that I could help you. Thanks

Ok.... As you can see, ramps and floors above level 3 are not diplay in hidden line only railings e stair risers. I try all options and values in view range settings, increasing top clip plane but nothing happens. Could you help me? Thanks. PS: units=meters.

Typically this is how I set my view planes up (see attached jpeg). With these settings you will see everyting above 4' of the associated level, and in my case you will see everything below 7' 6" of the associated level. View depth is for how far below the associated level you want to see, I usually leave this at 0' 0" unless there is a special reason to see below the floorline. So for you if you want your cutplane to start at the 3rd floor you would set that to 4' (equivelant in metric) or whatever you want it to be. If you want to see up to the 4th floor then you would set that at whatever you want that height from the top of that floor. The way it looks right now you want to see 2.3 meters above L4 and you want to see -2.3 meters below L2 and your view depth is unlimited meaning that you will see all the way to the bootom of your drawing. If I'm understanding you correctly this should help you, if I'm not understanding you please let me know.

Ok.. let me try to explain with an example. This is a quick drawing of one of my projects modeled in 3dsmax7 + Finaltoon. The first floor is 3.50 meters from ground plane. Plus same value for others floors. So, If I start my cut plane 1.50 meters, we would cut columns and others elements. But, we must see some hidden lines to define boundaries of first and second floor as well others facade elements. How can I set my top clip plane???? Thanks....

A plan looks down - items above it are not seen. In order to show elements dotted over you need overlay the correct level and use the linework tool on the appropriate edges then turn off the underlay. Alternatively you can overlay the plan on the sheet with a specially created view that shows the next level with a graphic override. HTH.

Thanks Mr. Spot... I saw a Revit tutorial about this technique and I didnt believe it. Revit is a great software but why it can be done automatically? Defining the cut plane, elements above should be displayed in hidden lines!!!! In my opinion, Autodesk should be concern about this. Thanks all....

I may be a bit lat adding to this thread, but I totally agree with Kassen.

Has this issue of hidden lines beyond (i.e. foundation walls below a slap) been addressed in 2008 because I sure can't figure it out.

The idea of a work around is not my idea of a good time.

Any updates on this topic?

thanks

Scott
