can someone take a look at this family I made and tell me why when inserted into a model and the sink small is checked to show why the splashes all disappear in plan view? I mean they look correct in Elev/section views but disappear when the sink is on and reappear as normal when the sink is checked off. Any help would be appreciated!

 

PS- the linen extrusion does not affect whether the splashes are showing or not if checked.....

The way I got your backsplashes to show up was to go into the visibility of them.  You had "When cut in Plan/RCP" uncheked.  Checking this will keep them turned on when the sink is in there.  My guess would be that the sinks goose neck took the family above the cut plane of 4' so since that check box was unchecked it shut them off.  Hope that helps

Thank you so much! How wierd. I would have never thought of that. Still unclear as to how it figured to cut them out of view when the sink was there and not when the sink wasnt there but hey. It work! Thanks a ton!

The reason it was cuting them out of view when the sink was in there was because the goose neck of the sink made the family being cut.  So if you were to look at the sink in a front elevation the gooseneck of the sink would go above 4' above the floor which is a typical cut plane.  Because of this the whole family was being considered "cut" and since you that was unchecked it was saying that you didnt want to see the backsplash when your countertop family was being cut, which with the sink and the faucet it was being cut.  And with out the top of your countertop family was under the 4' cut plane so your backsplashes showed up.
