Renovation filter problem

Hello everyone,

I am facing with a very strange problem which kind of become a big problem!

I am trying to  show a plan that shows comparison of demished element(yellow color), new costructed element (Red color) and existing element with original color and setting. to show you clearly my situation I  made a simple example of a window in wall. if you see the first screenshot 1 you can see that in plan view everything is fine and I can see the demolished window in the existing wall with right color. but when I go to elevation view, somehow very strangely the windows is diseapered and I am just seeing the existing wall with just opening of the windows and i dont see any windows(Screenshot2). However, If i change the wall to be in demilished phase again I can see the window (Screenshot 3).

I would be very thankful if someone knows how to solve this problem.

Good day,

Ehsan

it means that it can be either 2 things you walled up the previous demolished window or you have an empty opening. do you plan to place a new window?

In the end what is your Objective?

Hi ryejuan and thank you for your answer. Actually both of them are wrong.

What I need to see is wall (which is existing and not demolished) and a windows which is demolished from the wall. but i need to see all the window in yellow color. to represent that there was a window which is demolished.

for this specific task you need to create a new renovation filter.

usually it is set like this, see image below.

you need to create a new filter for this to work so it won't affect other views that you are using this current filter. see image below.

if you noticed I changed the filter settings. Hope this helps you.

Thank you so much sir,

The problem is that with this filter setting I cannot see anymore new elements. However I need to see both new and demolished elements in the same elevation view.

Dont know how to fix it. tried so many things and still nothing.

what I need to see is like the screenshot that I have attached now.

as you can see it is both visible new element ( red color) and demolished element( yellow color). but as I couldnt see the demolished element, I had to draw it manually using line tool.

ehsanheydari:

 

I don't think what you want to do is possible, because when the New is turned on, it will fill in the Demo openings with New wall (this is easier to see in 3D if New is set to Override and the Surface override is active). I think all you can do is turn on Demo with New off, copy the windows, then paste them (they will be lines) into the elevation when New is on.

 

You should add a Signature to your Profile (click the Profile button near the top of this page) with your Archicad version and operating system (see mine for an example) for more accurate help in this forum.

Hi David,

Yes that could be also an option but it is very strange that there is no option for seeing both of them together.

by the way thank you so much and thank you also for the tip about signature

You need to set several things. 

1. Graphic Overrides.  See image below for reference.

If you want your Grid lines to be in black lines you also need to add that in the combination but mainly your criteria would be set in this way. 

(** take note that it will be transparent in your elevation so you need to take care of the elevation horizontal range)

 

2. Renovation Filter. See image below for reference.

What the red line represents? A new window or new opening?

yes practically it is showing the new opening because the window is demolished.However I dont want to see it and I just need to see the demolished window with yellow color
