Round Walls with Solid Fill Trouble

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I'm having an issue where the round/arched walls in my building are not displaying a solid fill correctly.  In the screen shot below I have three bay windows on the south side (N is up); you'll see the two round walls on the left show an entire circle filled in even though the wall is only narrow arch, and the bay window to the right is showing a white filled ring.  Currently the walls are set to "unstyled" but I have had them set to "10" generic" with a simple fill and had the same issue.  I have tried re-modeling them as unstyled, styled, and replacing the style.  When I first draw the wall it appears correct, it is not until I switch views and come back to my floor plan that the filed circles/rings reappear (which makes me think this is a bug).  I did create saved views for my plans but I have navigated to them without using the "saved view' drop down to ensure it is not a weird visibility setting.  In the plan it is not a big deal to just give the walls no fill but this causes my 3D views and elevations to not render correctly, any advice is welcomed!

Hello E For the sake of your own sanity I have encountered this before. Although in our case our walls are grey so I end up with a big grey circle/s! From memory I think this issue was triggered by the placement of windows in the round wall: taking them out seemed to resolve it. In non technical terms I've either had to recreate the round wall/s and/or fiddle about with the window placement in the round walls to resolve it.

 

 

good luck!
