section camera break line

Recommended Posts

I was really excited to discover that I could break a section camera to create a jogged section cut.

HOWEVER, as soon as I put a line break in the section line, the wall framing (most of it) disappears.

Tried it on a clean floor plan just to be sure it wasn't plan specific.

When I move the break back to the original location, voila! the framing is back.

I know X10 will be out soon, but anyone else have this issue in X9?

Thanks

Barb

Here is a plan file and a pdf that shows the condition after cutting the section.  You can see that the wall framing on the right side is missing in the section cut, but shows in the floor plan and a wall framing detail.

Thanks for looking.

Barb,

 

I opened your plan and couldn't see what you were talking about.

I can't see any cross section cameras.

Are you using a back clipped cross section?

Can you post the plan with the cross section camera saved.

Hi Glenn

Sorry, I forgot to save the camera.  it's saved in this plan with the break line shown. If you moved the section line up and down you should see how the framing disappears.

Are we calling saved cameras something different here?  I only see saved cross sections ie E2,3,4,5.   there are no saved camera views looking in the Project Browser

hmmmm I must be special cos it's adding framing in mine :)  or I misunderstand the issue?

 

the cross boxes are missing on the right , but I don't know why we have plates framing in the middle as that wall is not crossed (drywall should hide them...)

 

Building the Framing again didn't help

I get the same result.  I was mostly concerned with the missing wall framing on the right.

If you have the section view and the floor plan windows tiled on your screen (so you can see both views at the same time), the framing disappears as soon as you break the section line, you don't even have to drag it.

Happy Friday.

Okay I thought I was seeing something you weren't but I don't think the framing in the exterior Wall in the middle should show like that, messing with the Clipping Depth didn't seem to help.

I have tried drawing new wall, changed wall types and new sections and I get same behaviour. Wall on right will not show cross marks even after auto detail if you break the cut line.

Thanks for looking guys!  I’ll be upgrading to X10 for new projects, but don’t want to switch in the middle.

Enjoy the weekend, we got another 8” snow overnight. Getting deep out there! Off to shovel.
