I have a generic model that is acting as a ceiling and wall of the dropoff/drivethrough area of our building. I have model lines within the generic model to represent the joint lines in the metal panel ceiling. For some reason, these joint lines are showing up on the floor plan. I can change the visibilty properties to hide them, but then they are not visible in the RCP.

Does anyone know why these are showing up in the floor plan?

From the HELP menu:

"Model lines are work plane-based elements that exist in 3D space and are visible in all views. They can be drawn straight or curved, either singly or in chains, or in the shape of a rectangle, circle, ellipse, or other polygon. (For detailed instructions on the available sketching options, see Sketching Elements.) Because they exist in 3D space, you can use model lines to represent geometry such as cords or cables supporting a tarp. "



"The Detail Line tool creates detail lines for detailing drawings. Detail lines are visible only in the view in which they are drawn. Often they are drawn over the model view. You can convert detail lines to model lines. See Converting Line Types.

NoteIf you want to sketch lines that exist in 3D space and display in all views, see Model Lines.

The Detail Line tool has the same line styles as the Line tool, but detail lines are view-specific, like detail components and other annotations.

Detail lines are drawn in the view’s sketch plane. They can be used to detail a view with part of the model visible, such as in a wall section or callout. Or detail lines can be used in a drafting view to draft lines with no reference to the model. Some examples of detail lines in a drafting view are signage or typical details that have no reference to the model.

You can also use detail lines for tracing over underlay elements. See View Properties for more information on setting elements as underlays.

Before using this tool, you should read Creating Details.


  1. Click Annotate tabDetail panel (Detail Line).
  2. Sketch lines as appropriate. "
