How to get rid of black line at windows and doors?

Recommended Posts

It seems like VW2012 is drawing and extra line at window and door jambs and I can't seem to get rid of them.

If I create a SLVP and override the line color of walls, windows & doors, a black line remains at jambs. See attached pic and vwx file.

My engineer has also had trouble with these lines in my DWG exports.

Has anyone else out there experienced this? Can someone help me?

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure that using wall styles will fix this.

I just tried it with 3 components and that line wasn't a problem.

for me to - why vw does?t clear these bugs?

if i have a wall with one component -> i get this line

with two component -> everything is quite fine

Check to see if in the Object Info panel, you have the window "break" set to "full break with caps". That might be the source of the extra line.

Any progress on this? I'm up to SP4 on VW2012 and it still seems to happen. Is there at least a work-around for this?

No. That doesn't fix it.

This is really getting on my nerves. The problem didn't exist in previous versions of VW so VW effectively, broke door and windows. There have been 2 or 3 service packs released since this bug was identified and it's still not fixed. There isn't even a work-around.

There are lots of things that I like about VW. Bug fixing and software consistency aren't among them.

NVW, please fix this!

Haven't found a solution but it seems to have something to do with components in walls, switch off wall components in the VP and the lines disappear.

I don't use wall components but I do use wall styles.

....well then I did find a solution for you at least, otherwise I presume it's a bug because the line style is not overridden like everything else.......
