Im trying to create a wolf range 3D CAD block for my revit model. The 3D CAD part is completely wire framed in all views but the 3D view. So in plan you can see through it to the floor pattern underneath. I want to add then a masking region to the family so it wiped out the floor under (in plan), but still shows the range itself. But the masking region covers everything.

any help would be cool. I cant "move to back" the masking region so my plan view lines show through. :-(

Place a very thin extrusion under the stove and set it to show only in plan.

haha! thats exactly what I ended up doing! Great minds!

Was curious though, there is no "send to back" commands in the families editor. Seems like the perfect tool, but there must be some reason that it can't 

Thanks

Your problem is how the CAD was done.  If it had a solid in it high enough, then you would not have to do this.

 

Masking regions hide everything except 2D elements including text and dimensions.

Cool.

Note though, you CAN do the masking region in a "detail item" family. If you DL a CAD file from a supplier (say a range dwg) and import that cad into a detail item family, then you can make a masking region and send it under the CAD lines, getting a nice family to insert that masks floor tiles etc..., but its only a flat 2D element. Sort of works for detail plans, where you have a lot of equipment and such.
