Curtainwall Tool and Hidden Line

Question

Dear VW,

 

Is there a reason that the "guts" of a curtainwall do not disappear during a hidden line? They used to in 2017. I find this annoying, but perhaps there's another reason that I can't understand. I've tried to manipulate it, but it seems to reveal the inner lines when only the outline should appear.

 

I noticed that once my model went to 2018, the inner lines started to appear. I opened a new file and inserted a new wall from VW library, but it still shows in the inner lines - not how we would show it or how it would appear.

 

Thanks

Lee Calisti

First I thought you may have chosen a complicated profile.

But I saw it's only  the standard profile with simple top cap.

 

So I think it should not appear different in HL but like the Window does.

This many months later with VW2019, I still don't have an answer. According to this model, I have the same wall type inserted twice - one renders correctly, one did not.

Thanks leecalisti

 

We tried it here a couple of times from scratch in a new blank document using a curtain wall style straight from the VW default library.

Once on VW2019 SP2 running on an iMac OSX Mojave 10.14.2

and again on VW2019 SP2 running on a Windows 10 PC

Same result as your incorrect version on both machines

We have submitted a bug report
