Edit Wall Cutout Polyline not working

Recommended Posts

I can't see the edit toolbar - it is cut off.

Why are you using a passthrough to make the wall hole?

The Wall Cutout Polyline does that.

Post that plan with the custom window symbol placed.

Here you go. I've never used Wall Cutout Polyline. I've never seen the tool.
If  the Edit Wall Cutout Polyline edits a Wall Cutout Polyline, what creates one? 

I tried it. I can see shapes changing but a hole in wall is never created.
Thx

version 6.plan

You create a Wall Cutout Polyline by opening the symbol specification dbx and on the options panel, checking Inserts into wall.

While you are there, enter the Depth as 6".

Select the window and on the Edit toolbar click Edit Wall Cutout Polyline. 

Oh, I had to change the Y Position Origin Offset to -6" to get the window in the correct location in 3D and cut a hole.

That all works for 3D.

You will probably have to create a new 2D cad block for the wall hole in plan view.

I see you using the Edit Wall Cutout Polyline in the video. If you don't have a Wall Cutout Polyline, why are you using Edit Wall Cutout Polyline?

I'm sorry. I have version 11 and I cannot open version 12.
Someone suggested using EWCP. I was hoping a pass-through window WAS a wall cutout polyline. I guess not. Would you please export as version 11. I'd really like to see the results. Thank you!!!

Thanks Glennw,
I see now that the hole is automagically created id you enter 6" and check Inserts Into Wall.
Maybe that means you have to enter the wall thickness for it to work.
Thanks for your help!
