why can't I see my curtainwall in plan?

Question

First time using the curtain wall tool.  I have modeled it in place and it appears correct in 3D but doesn't appear in the plan views.  I've put it on its own class and have it on for the viewport - nothing.  I've checked to make sure no components classes are shut off and I still have no idea how to get it to work.

Any chance you could throw that curtain wall into a file by itself and post it so I can take a look?

 

The curtain wall doesn't display anything in 2D if it doesn't have a 3D height set, but other than that, I am not sure what could be going on without seeing it.

If it didn't have a height it wouldn't show in 3D, which it does.  Do you want the whole file to look at?  I'm sure you'll consider it a mighty mess.

If the whole file can be uploaded directly here, that works. If you would prefer, I can also send you an upload link.

@KBallantyne It appears the wall is set up to be above the cut plane setting. If you increase the cut plan up to 10' or so, it will then display in top/plan properly.

I'll give it a go.  Thanks.  I would chase that for another week and still not think of it.  Sometimes it's the easiest solutions and all it takes is to know what box to tick...

Cheers
