Polyline Solids

Recommended Posts

Why do polyline solids appear perfect in plan view but in the perspective view the size of the polyline solid is incorrect. In this case I am using the polyline solids for stone sills above stone veneer on pony walls and belly bands on siding transitions

 

Thanks for your help in advancepolyline example.pdf

Not sure about incorrect bit but to me I would be using a mouldings line

We would need to see the plan to give you an accurate answer.  On a side note, the detail you are showing can very easily be done by applying a molding to the exterior room.

There are some buggy things going on with p/solids and solids.  However, I agree with Michael there is a much better way to do what you are doing.  If you follow his advice on this you won't ever do it the other way again.

I abandoned poly-line solids to act as window sills and lentils many versions ago. For that purpose I use molding profiles that I draw myself and add to my Library Browser. They are easy and quick to make and apply and do not tend to move around like poly-line solids sometimes do interacting to a terrain plane. Molding profiles attach themselves to the window or door symbol and stay there.
