Wall components not showing up in Section Viewport

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to create a simple wall section with a  section viewport but can't get the components to show up as viewed in the edit wall styles window.

I've read all the posts and info in the Help file for the past hour or so but can't seem to find the answer to this simple procedure.

Attached is the file.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In Advanced Section Properties you need to change the Attributes settings to Use Attributes of Original Objects.

And under the next tab over, the "Display" tab, you need to check "Show Wall, Slab and Roof Components"

I am trying to set a section viewport so that the wall sections show the components, I looked at what Wes Gardner explained, but the dialog box in the advanced properties of the viewport, Display tab does not show the options shown in the image Wes shows here. Mine does not have the Show Walls, Slab and Roof Components option. I have selected Use Attributes of Original Object as well as Show Wall, Slab and Roof Components in the Attributes tab, but all this section shows in  is a yellow fill.

I am running VW Architect 2018 and it is up to date. Was this eliminated?

Any help would be appreciated.


It is solved, I can see the components now.

Mike Moore's post covered this for me. See above.

Re the fill; you set that in Classes, under Section Style.

You can select Section line thickness and fill colour there.

I am also on VW arch. 2018.
