Hello there,

 

I'm racking my brain trying to figure this out.  I have a counter top at 2'-10" (ADA Heights), and I have casework below at 2'-8 1/2" and the counter thickness is 1 1/2".

 

In Plan view my casework is showing through the counter, so naturally I went to see if a masking region was in the counter family.  Sure enough it's there.  But then if I set my casework height to 2'-8" (any height NOT TOUCHING underside of counter) then the masking region does it's job and doesn't show the casework below.

 

How do I get this to show NO CASEWORK if it's below my counter, even when it's touching the underside of it?

 

Thanks,

Lorne

The masking region is at the wrong place in the family.  I prefer to use solid objects for counters and table tops just because of this problem.

Thanks for the reply WWHub,

 

I didn't know masking regions can be assigned a work/reference plane?  Thought they were annotations that are view driven.  The family we have for some reason has the counter turned off in plan.  I forget why exactly, but there was a reason for it at some point.  I agree though, I'd rather go the simplier route with less objects and just have the 3D geometry visible.

 

Thanks for the help.
