So, I've made a plate for my project and I've got it located at the right depth within the wall panel. However, since it's supposed to be recessed I need it to be shown as recessed. Currently the only way to see it is to have the view style on wireframe. I've tried adding a void extrusion to the plate family where the recess would be, but to no avail. Anyone no how to show a recess in a wall panel so that the plates/connections would show?

Is this a hosted element - face or wall?  If so, then there is a slight trick here.  Edit the element an create your void off to the side and set it to cut the host.  If you create it where your element is, it will automatically cut that and you don't want it.  After you create the void, move it over to where it belongs.

 

If your element is a stand alone item, then nest it in a face based family with a void created like the above.

Thanks! I also read somewhere else that it doesn't automatically cut the surface. I didn't know that. I had to use the cut command and select the wall first and then the object that was cutting the wall. So that solved the problem.
