Right click in a view - a 3D view I wouuld prefer .- and choose View Properties. And in the window Element Properties click on Visibilty´s Edit button and you can in the new window turn off the visibility of walls. OK! All walls . not certain walls. I have not found the possibilty to turn off certain walls - just all in a view...

You can set up a workset called Foundation Walls or some variation thereof, place all your foundation walls on it, and turn off the workset in the view. Worksets are a great way to control visibility.

If you have the standard tool bar on, there is a button called Hide/Isolate which has a pair of sunglcurse on it. If you activate that command in the view that you would like to hide the walls, or whatever you select to hide. you will notice that the sunglcurse turn red if there is something hidden in your current view. I hope that it helps. remember that what ever you select will be hidden or isolated in only that view.

Another option is to assign all your foundation walls a "bearing" status in the properties box under Structural Usage. Then in the view properties, change the Discipline option to "Sturctural" This should only show bearing walls and structural components. You can modify the view templates to further fine-tune the visibility of certain objects.

Is there a way to show foundations drawn normally but represented by dotted lines in a view at the level above i.e. a ground floor plan. I have tried adjusting the zone of visibility to make the footings visiable but I can't seem to find a way to have these displayed in dotted lines.

You can underlay the information you want and then use the linework tool on the elements you wish to show dashed... Then simply turn off your underlay.

Would Hide/Isolate not work for this? View: Hide/Isolate: select objects you wish to hide, click hide.

Hide/Isolate changes are only temporary and these changes will not print...
