I've tried to find a similar thread to this problem but to no avail so I'll pose it myself.

Why is it that plumbing fixtures display differently to generic models? For instance I have two downpipes exactly the same, but one is a generic model which displays in all views as it should, and one is a plumbing fixture which refuses to be cut by any view and instead displays the model in its completeness (see level 1 & level 2 pics attached section dwg diplays how the two DPs look.)

This is a problem that seems to recure throughout all revit versions i've used. Anybody got any ideas about how to get rid of this (very annoying) issue?

This probably has to do with the family itself.  I think if you compare the visibility settings between the plumbing fixture and the generic model there may be a difference.

The other culprit may be that one extrusion is able to be cut while the other is not, also a "family" issue.

In your help menu look up cuttable families and (under"Family Editor Commands"Winking using symbolic lines.
