I have created a wall based model family of a steel plate, to represent embedded plates in tilt-up walls.  Everything works fine except the plates do not show up hidden in an elevation view of the wall, when they are on the opposite face.  Beams and intersecting walls on the back side show up hidden, and on course anything on the front side shows up solid.  But the plates simply do not show up at all.  Now, I can use the "display hidden lines" tool to get them to show up, but this is time consuming and I run the chance of missing something.  I just don't understand why one object shows up hidden but not others.  Does anyone know of a way to get these to show up hidden by default?  I have tried both wall based and face based, and neither worked.

 

Thanks much.

How about placing those hidden lines in the family on the otherside of the wall.

Good idea, that could work.  But I have actually changed it to a Face based family now, so that I can add it to any object, walls, columns, beams, etc....  I don't think I could do the same with Face based, not sure?  I'll look into it.

 

Thanks.
