Hi, I have built a model and have created particular wall types with internal and external claddings with thicknesses which are assigned materials and colors to them... for example a 120mm stud wall, with 30mm weather board and 10mm plasterboard. This is fine for generating a rendered image of your model, but when i go to dimension the walls, the dimensioning picks up everything. How does one avoid this problem of the dimensions showing say a 150mm wall, when all i want it to show is a 120mm stud wall on my working drawings?
