I think I have done this before, but I can't be certain especially since it is not working. The ramp that I have is a floor drawn by extrusion and because if that it doesn't cut correctly. I need my CAD background I have in the file to sit above my fill region or masking region. I can hide the floor, yes, but then I have walls that go beneath it to hold up this ramp. The walls need to cut and need to stay that way, but I can't get the fill region to go in the back or CAD come to the front. The reason we want this is because the ramp (sloped floor) has a pattern on it and we have received that from Landscape. I am trying to get a drawing set done but this won't work and I can only hide things and fake it and slow down my file a lot. How do I fix this?

Sorry - your question is not clear at all.

You are not goingto get a CAD file and a filled region or masking region to communicate or stack. Changing to wireframe may help but most likely will present other problems and make you turn a bunch of stuff off.

 

Imprt the CAD file, trace it and remove it.

Thank you. I actually got it to work by just importing the CAD file only to that view. Linking actually only to that view. It's a hard thing to explain, but we made it work for right now.
