Transparent walls on "Hidden line" elevation render

Recommended Posts



I'm coming from a Archicad and Revit background and fairly new to VW. I'm having trouble rendering simple lines elevations. Everything seams to be normal except for the walls that are transparent. All other rendering modes like OpenGL work fine, I only have the problem with the "hidden line".


I searched and tried a lot of things but couldn't figure that one out. Thanks for your help!

Hello BenjaminD and welcome to the world of Vectorworks. 


The first thing I suggest is to inspect the transparent walls, in top/plan view might be best, and verify that they have a solid fill. HTH.

Thanks RGyori!


Yes, they have a solid fill as per their class (see attached).


I have then a texture applied on one of the wall side (not as "per class"), the overall and other side texture is "per class", if that makes sense ...

Sorry for the delay, I figured out that the "gradient" fill was causing the issue. I guess it has to be solid. Thanks for your help RGyori.
