How can I get rid of the line between columns on different floors?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Any one know how to get rid of the line between the columns on different floors on elevations/sections?

I am using the BIM model to generate the sections and elevations, but the lines between the continues columns do not look good.

I always thought the typical way in VW, to hide unwanted lines,

would be drawing a filled rectangle over these.

As I remember there was mentioned something about Walls not

getting extra lines between stories. If so, maybe that has to be added

to Columns and is a Wish or Feature Request.

A workaround could be to draw the Columns from the lowest Story

to the full height over all Stories as one part.

That way you will miss these in other Stories Floor Plans but could

draw 2D counterparts that will not disturb your 3D BIM Model and

(overall) calculations.

Or Maybe draw the Columns on a separate Layer so that you can

add these to all related Stories Floor Plans in Viewports.

And depending on the viewport's draw/render style, playing with

crease angle could help in some cases ?
