Wall recess: wall hatch showing when window/door inserted

Recommended Posts

I've created a wall recess over a door (so as to omit the blockwork over the door and allow for a steel beam, while continuing the external wall insulation across in front of beam).

Problem is when I then insert the door into the wall the hatches show through in top plan view. Any way around this or suggestions for modelling this differently?

Paradoxically if I set the door to "no break" in wall it removes the part of the wall I've recessed from top plan view. But it still shows the part I haven't recessed. In any case this would obviously not work in 3D.

Thanks Buzz, that's probably the only option.

I don't think I've ever successfully used the wall recess and projection feature for anything.

Christiaan, have you tried setting the recess cut line to a height within the recess (should be in the OIP)? Normally, you have to adjust that height to get the recess to show as a cut in the wall.
