Hello,

I want to build in a 6" no-fly zone above all our ceilings, for use in coordianation with our MEP trades, to clearly highlight a clearance area where there should be little or no pipes, ducts, etc.  I made a new materia (transparent), and created a new air layer above the ceiling construction using that material.  The issue is, in section I want to be globally, using either view templates or a default "off" parameter, to not show the clearance area lines.  Right now the ceiling look super thick, and does not look correct in sections.  I tried making a filter, but cannot turn off a specific material within ceilings.  Is there a way to make a sub-category in ceiling families, that can be individually controlled by view templates/filters?  or any other work-around for this?

Thanks in advance!

You can not turn off a layer as you want.  In section views, you can use the invisible line tool.  Another option would be to have a second ceiling above the real one that is all that material and in a seperate workset.

Thanks WWHub!  I was afraid that would be the answer.  Due to the hundreds of section views we will have, the invisible line tool isn't an efficient solution, and modeling a separate ceiling for every ceiling is way too much of an additioanl work burden.  Looks like we may need to reconsider our strategy.  Thanks for your reply!

You don't have to remodel them all, just select one, right click and select all instances, then copy and paste to selected view ,it should keep all the new ceilings selected then you can adjust the offset and ceiling type.
