3D Object Fill in a section view possible?

Recommended Posts

I wanted to know if it is possible to set the options of a 3D Object (an extrude for example) in a way that the Extrude would show a fill in a vertical section view, like floor slabs do.

Hi Phileas

First your extrude must have a fill and secondly you have to go into the advanced section properties and choose "Use attributes of original  Objects"

Use the attributes pallet


on the design layer you will have to be in open gl rendering mode to see if a 3D object is filled

@Hans-Olav worked perfectly 🙂


I wanted to thank you for helping me so much recently, I'm quite a newbie to Vectorworks and still learning
