I have a problem with a cross section that I am trying to create of a simple single storey building with a tiled pitched roof. I can't get the external cavity walls to display properly! I have tried changing various settings in the properties box, the walls are set as 'New Construction' and they appear perfectly normal on plan. In section however all the detail is missing and they almost appear transparent, very frustrating! 'Detail Level' is set to Fine as well, any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, What detail on the walls are you referring to? I think your referring to maybe a brick or siding pattern on the elevations? If this is the case you may want to check the material for this component and see if it has a relevant surface pattern applied...

Hi Mr Spot, thanks for the reply. My problem is with the actual section through the cavity wall. It is not showing the cavity or any other detail, only the outline. Also I can see the hatching of the brickwork beyond not only to one side but through the section of the cavity wall as well?! I have attached a word .doc screen capture of the offending section. Once again many thanks Rob Winzar

check your detail level setting, many views default to course and much of the detail your asking about is defined as medium or fine level detail.

It could be any number of things... To do with either the wall properties itself, the section detail level or any visibilty settings you've overridden. If you still can't figure it out, it might be easiest if you send an example revit file i can look at. IE: start a new project draw that particular wall type and cut a section through it. If it appears the same, purge the project (to reduce the file size) and post it.
