Vector Views

Recommended Posts

With vector views one can go to Technique Options and turn off 'opaque glazing' thereby enabling all the exterior joinery glazing to be see through.

This doesn't appear to work with glass railings - the glass panels still remain opaque.

Is there a setting where the glass railings can be see through as well?

I believe that behavior is a "feature", and cannot be changed.

OK

So that applies to both Vector and Technical Illustration options

If you make the Glass Panel in a new Plan ( make the door width the Spacing between the Posts ) and then save it as a Door Symbol, it is Clear Glass in all Views, unless you want it Opaque of course.

 

Make the Railing Open , Post to Rail, then place the new Glass Panel "Door" as you normally place a door.

 

There are a few downside , one being you have to Close the 90° Swing showing in plan view and post placement is a bit finicky as it is determined by the Door Size. And you may need to add a Room Polyline in Plan view to show the deck edge.

 

Someone better than me with Symbols can probably make it work better and look nicer in Plan View too.

The way I have personally started handling that is by just using the delete surface tool for the necessary views.
