Slabs & Door Visibility in Plan

Recommended Posts

I'm doing my first VW project using the architectural template. Why do floor slabs obscure the doors and their swings in plan? Both were created on 1-Floor Layout. If I delete the floors, then I can see the doors. Thx.

Thanks Robert. Interesting… so this 2-D view is not necessarily showing me the 2-D representation of three dimensional objects!?

Top/Plan view is a drafted view of the 3D objects. It allows you to have some graphical control. You can create viewports in Top/Plan (drafted view) or Horizontal Section (strict spatial view.)

So if the 1-slab layer is turned on, how come I can't see the slabs in the 1-Floor Layout view?

 

And if the walls now reside on a different layer, you have to draw poly lines to create a slab?

Have a look at your Design Layer Option drop-down menu in the Navigation Palette. It might be set to Active Only, Gray Others, or Gray/Snap Others.
