I think there is a bug when making a Section Viewport through a Slab with has been subtracted by an extrude and then viewing the section with Create Structural and Non Structural Groups toggled on.


Vectorworks doesn't recognize it's a subtracted slab and it separates it from the rest of the slabs surrounding it.


I attach a screenshot of the model and a screenshot of two section viewports.

I solved my issue. I was actually doing a mistake. The appropriate way to subtract or add something from or to a slab or wall is using the different AEC commands:


- Create Wall Projection

- Create Wall Recess

- Add 3D Object from Slab

- Subtract 3D Object From Slab


When one does it this way then there is no problem with the Create Structural and Non Structural Groups options in a Section Viewport.

I also noticed that my finish floor packages (Slabs) tend to bite into Walls,

although only touching these.

Not a big issue in VW, but not nice for geometry when exported.


Thanks, now I know it has to do with the Structural options
