Window "opening" Line visibility - Horizontal Section

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there is a way to turn off the lines that show up in a horizontal section cut if there is an "opening" in the wall? These lines make it appear as though there is a window which isn't the case. I've tried setting all window components to a class that is turned off but this hasn't worked. This is an opening... there should not be any lines appearing in plan!

AFAIR that is because some Windows default Classes created by VW.

AFAIK it was the "Sill" Class (?)


Which I usually remember from unwanted white lines around Windows

with Opening only, in Renderings.


On the other hand I am a bit concerned why it happens for you exactly

at section plane (?)



But why a Opening ?

Why not interrupt the divided Wall and connect to the Oriel Walls ?

(but I am sure you have a valid reason)

Thanks for your response. I don't know what you mean by Oriel Walls but this is also a film set so built a little differently (if that's what is confusing you)


But the reason behind the opening and window combo is that there is a "bench" below the window at a lower height than the window proper. it's the only way I could think of combining to get this effect. This same thing occurs with an opening in a wall (which I have between two rooms)


Turning the sill class off doesn't seem to change the appearance.
