How to hide a wall temporarily?

Recommended Posts

Hi

How can I hide a wall temporarily?

When I try Visibility Tool, they only hide Class or Layer

^ This.

 

Basically just workarounds.

Or using the Clip Cube.

 

I think there are still traces of legacy objects hiding in VW

@Pat Stanfordknows how to access it.

 

But I would also love to have an option to temporarily hide

selected objects. I have that in Bricscad and got so used to

selective hiding.

Love me some Clip Cube, tho it can be a bit finicky to play with.

Try right click on wall and hide objects. It will appear again once you change a classes.image.thumb.png.ded7351da322a82d24257a0c70c3738e.png

Thanks @Jonathan Pickup, I did finally figure that out. Finicky also in the sense that I need to orbit to odd angles/views to both select and move the relevant face.

I haven't experienced that,

once the Clip Cube is Selected and therefore activated,

I was able to approach the CC edges from different directions

to activate the CC Face I needed, including occluded Faces.

 

And temporarily deactivating snaps

(or moving cursor outside of geometries)

may help with correct Face reposition.

But I think you will get a feeling for it and I mostly just snap

to a suitable located object and just repeat if I was off.
