WALLS components with classes!


In working the "VW WAY" and generating all plans from a minimum amount of design layers, how does one generate a structural and an architectural plan (VP) from the SAME design layer. The walls would have to read differently in the respective VP's (ie: only structural wall element in structural and structural and finish components in architectural). This would be achievable if wall components could be class specific, and so be turned on or off as required...

Can VW take notice of this wish list request?

Anyone has a good work around for this?

In Advanced Properties of Viewports there is an option to turn off Show Wall Components.

You can also alter the graphic appearance of the "background" parts of your "Structural" Viewport by Graying selected Classes and/or Layers as needed.

The option of assigning Classes to walls would relate to my issue with exporting to Artlantis. Renderworks allows rendering of both sides of a wall with different materials. This does not translate to Artlantis. Allowing class options for wall components would most solve this.
