Glass in hidden lines

Recommended Posts

I just need to know how to make the glass surfaces not to be transparent in elevation viewports.  Thanks in advance

@ Eric Marin...here's a Hidden Line rendering in a viewport which I believe is the default setting for "Create Section Viewport". Is this what you're trying to achieve?

Thanks Wes,  this is my elevation viewport. As you can see, the glass has transparency, that is why it shows the stairs, among other things

The two things that come to mind are: no fill in the "Glass" class or the "Glass" class is turned off in your viewport?

I have fill in the Glazing class and the class is on in the viewport. These are curtain walls made as symbols (in order to be inserted in the walls) Maybe that has something to do? I also checked for fill in the curtain wall panel attributes but still having transparency

With the curtain wall edit tool select the edit panels button select the panels and right click on it to access the edit panel dialog,  make sure the panel has a texture assigned to it.Capture1.thumb.JPG.554452822e54388ce2cc3314216afe9e.JPG579339150_Capture3(2).thumb.JPG.ed42e42961b78804986c3c303cf2aa54.JPG

@Eric Marin...here's a bit of a temporary solution for your curtain wall...in the Panel Settings, DO NOT set the Panel Fill to be "By Class", just set it to have a solid fill.  See the attached screen shot.  I've submitted a bug so that we can get the behavior squared away.

 

Thank you for calling this to our attention

Thank you, Wes, your temporary solution works fine! The only thing is that you have to go window by window changing the panel fill...  Thanks again!
