Roof sheathing bleed-thru

Recommended Posts

Trying to stop what I call "roof sheathing bleed-thru" when I use perspective full overview.  Guessing there is a simple fix, don't know what it is.  Suggestions?

There have been many past threads posted here about "Z Fighting", please do a "Search" for that term where this question has been answered well and thoroughly in the past, multiple times.

This issue is much more prevalent in X6/X7 , and there is a KB article that may help , try the suggestion under  "To accommodate large Terrains" where you alter the clipping distance to 300" ....this has worked for me...

Actually, I found out last Friday there is a known issue with z-fighting CA developers are working on and will have a resolution soon. I had a 1st level tech verify all the known solutions did not work on mine. I get it on doors, soffits. The tech told me to keep working the fix will not effect my work. Try the known fixes if that does not work write a ticket let them know.

with doors don't turn off interior casing , as it also effects the Frame for some reason , eg around garage doors.

My doors are fine now that you pointed out my interior casing was off, thanks Mick. I still have it on my soffits. Interesting part is the tech said the "known" issues are with doors, not roofs and soffits. We'll see, I guess at the next update.

A temporary solution for roofs at least is to set the sheathing to the same material as the roof surface. That action then eliminates the "Z" fighting for the roof, call it a work-round if you like, it does work.

Many thanks.  Both changing clipping distances and changing the sheathing to the same as the roofing worked.
