Section lines display not the same in view as layout?

Recommended Posts

I am new to x8, when i take a section and send to layout i get section lines beyond the wall that are not visible because wall is there.

Whats going on?

I have plot lines selected.

 

I need to send to printer tonight for meeting in the morning, hopefully someone can fill me in.

Did you check in your section camera DBX "back clip after" check box, and specified a distance?

I see what is happening, i change the clip line to show what it sees, but in x7 it showed everything that was visible to view, not anymore?

In otherwords i have a wall that is set back on the main floor with cabinets on the back wall and a wall on the second floor that is much closer, in order to see

the cabinets on the lower floor i must move clip line beyond this point in the lower floor but then it shows what is behind wall in upper wall, makes no sense.

yes i understand this but i would have to break it not in plan but in elevation to show the lower room in elevation.

A section should cut what is in section and show what is in elevation beyond, this has changed from x7?

It will show what is beyond the section unless you have backclip selected. Can you post the plan? It shouldn't show more than what is visible as it sounds like your issue is.
