Windows and framing only

Recommended Posts

Any way to show framing and window only? Horizontal framing project.

Here's one way but it requires either creating a Save As version of the plan and/or temporarily changing your material definitions in the main plan.

 

1.  Switch to your 3D framing set and turn on the Walls, Normal and Windows layers.  You may also want to turn off the casing layers.

2.  Use the Adjust Material Definition tool to change your walls' interior and exterior layers by:

A.  Changing the Material Type to "Gap" (this is for Vector Views).

B.  Clicking on Properties, switching the Material Class to "General Material" and setting the transparency to 100% (this is for other render views).

 

There are other more complex ways too, but I think that would be the easiest for a few quick renderings.

Too much work for delete surfaces but another good idea. I copied wall type with "open" materials. TY again Michael
