In Top views, why don't they display as solids?

I created frieze blocks as an extrusion then rotated them to be perpendicular to the roof plane, and they are classed with a solid fill and render correctly, but won't behave properly as above, and objects in the layer below show through them. Is this a VW bug or me? Or do I need a different tool?

Don that is just the way VW is. In Plan view 3D only objects only appear in wireframe. If you want them to show as a fill you will need to make a hybrid symbol of them.

You do this by drawing the 2D plan representation you want over the top of them and then with both the 2D and the 3D selected create a symbol. In Plan view only the 2D will show. In 3D only the 3D will show.
