Does anyone know if this is possible?  This is a long shot, but I would like to find a way to do a floor plan/ site plan with shadows but the shadows cast are of the entire builting including the roof.  When I turn on the shadows in a standard floor plan, the shadows are cast as if the walls are all half height walls (because that is where the cut plane is cut).  But in reality they are not half height walls and the actual shadow cast should be of the full height of the walls and the roof.  Attached is a sketch of what I am trying to accomplish.  In the sketch you see that there are no shadows cast inside the building, but the shadows cast on the ground are of the full building including the roof.

I just tried using a section box and it did not work.  The shadows are cast as if there is no roof and the walls are only half height.  Any other ideas?

Sorry, I skimmed but did not thoroughly read your post.  You can't get completely what you want.  There is no way to include the roof since it is no longer there.

I figured there there was no way to do it.  It is a shame though.  I cannot think of a time where I would want to see the shadows of half a wall.

I find the 'half wall' shaddow very nice to give the plans a 3D look.  It is a good presentation technique

I wish however that there an alternative shaddowwing to do plan sun studies.  I understand that, is what you need

Candidate for the 'wishlist'
