I'm trying to drill a hole in the railing wall.

1. When working with the opening tool, opening should not be turned off in the MVO in the structural drawing.
The lower part of a window is an opening in the lower wall.

2. If Window is empty, the window is removed from the MVO in the structural plan, but it is not removed.

Solution

1).

I wouldn't model the railing with openings.

But if you did, you should be able to drag any or all of the openings in plan, elevation or 3D.

 

I would model one long wall along the base, and then add shorter walls above for the piers and end walls.

Add railings in the gaps.

 

2).

For level of detail (LOD) of doors and windows, you can only display as full, simple or schematic in elevation and 3D and various levels of detail in plan.

 

As construction elements in MVO you can show entire door/window, opening only or hide in plan and for openings (with the opening tool) you can show symbol, opening only or hide.

These options only affect the plan view.

An empty window is still a window - you will always see the opening except you have the option to hide it in plan only.

Sorry, I don't understand what you are trying to do.

What MVO setting is the issue?

Question 1. How do you make such an uneven wall?

in floor plan

LeeJaeYoung_1-1655188129801.pngLeeJaeYoung_2-1655188149799.pngLeeJaeYoung_3-1655188199533.png

 

in structural plan

LeeJaeYoung_4-1655188276248.png

If you turn off opening in mvo

LeeJaeYoung_5-1655188417594.pngLeeJaeYoung_6-1655188439467.png

Question 2. I made it with the opening tool, so one of the windows in the stairwell is related to the lower floor, so I have to turn it off with MVO.
If you don't turn it off, it will look like the image below.

How do you work?

Question 3. So I worked with window empty.
However, when I turn off the window in the structural drawing, window empty does not turn off.

In other words, if you ask
Question 1. Is there any way to drag only one of the 5 openings in this plan view?
no upper

Question 2. Why can't window empty be turned off in MVO?
If there is a way to turn it off, please let me know.

yes!
I guess I am only what you think.

thank you so much

AC25 5010 on window 11

That works too.

I would do it this way.

Easier to just adjust the spacing / size of the top parts if you need to.

In the floor plan, I have to draw everything with the Line Tool, right?

No.

You have a Floor Plan Cut Plane (FPCP) height.

You set the wall's Floor Plan Display to be 'Symbolic' if you always want to see them as the composite was created (basically a cut view).

Or you set the wall's Floor Plan Display to be 'Projected with Overhead', and you can control the overhead and uncut line types in the wall settings.

Uncut lines (if the wall is below FPCP) can be solid and overhead lines (walls above FPCP) can be dashed.

Walls that pass through the FPCP will appear as being cut (same as if set to 'Symbolic').

 

You can also set the wall to be 'Projected' - you won't see it if it is above the FPCP.

Or you can make it 'Outlines only' (uncut) or 'Overhead all' which means it will use those line types regardless of the height to the FPCP.

 

See the Help file for info on Floor Plan Display ... https://help.graphisoft.com/AC/25/INT/index.htm?rhcsh=1&rhnewwnd=0&rhmapid=#t=_AC25_Help%2F050_Views...

I gave up after struggling because of this only visible in 3D view.
This line is not visible on the elevation.
BIM seems really tough.

Make sure you do not have any overlapping walls.

The surfaces will heal in elevation if they are the same surface material, but you may still see joins in 3D if walls overlap (i.e. 2 walls in the same 3D space).

Touching or joining is good, overlapping is bad.

Deleted wall.

LeeJaeYoung_4-1655282602535.png

 

What do you think about drawing a structural wall and a finishing wall separately like a rabbit?

 

There are times when I can't use Archicad...
It may be resolved later.
I did the same, but it didn't work...
After a while, if I do it the same way again, this will happen.
Is it because the computer specs are low?

CPU is i7 5820K GTX970 RAM32
Should I buy a COMPUTER?
If you need to buy a COMPUTER
CPU I5 vs I7 vs AMD...
ram?
I don't have money for graphic card, so I'm thinking of 3060 Ti or less.
^^
Please recommend.

I am not sure why you have deleted the wall along the bottom front of your railing.

You need that wall.

 

It is the wall on the side where I thought you might have 2 walls overlapping.

They can be two separate walls that touch or it could be just one wall on the side.

I am not sure what you mean by this.

Always try and keep all skins as one wall if you can.

Otherwise you have 2 walls to move and cut holes in - remember a window or door can only belong to one wall - you will have to cut an opening in the other wall.

I removed it just to let you know which walls are influencing them.

Solved, but sad.

LeeJaeYoung_0-1655288446744.png

LeeJaeYoung_1-1655288485751.png

It was done a long time ago.
Is this now the solution I want?

 

Thank you so much! ^^

AC25 5010 on window 11

Don't be sad. Be 😀

 

It looks good from what I can see.

The top of the walls don't match.

But that may be because they are different composites or complex profiles.

 

You can fix that if you want by overriding the edge surface of the walls.
