Hi,

Is it possible to make a concrete slab transparent, so I can see through it?

Thanks.

Put it on a layer that is setup to wireframe for 2D or change the BMat to glass, or do both.

Yes good idea I changed it to blue glass and it is what I want.

But I still want to know how to put it on a layer that is setup to wireframe for 2D!

Change the following icon for the layer and the slab will be wireframe in sections and elevations

Hi Ejrolon,

I prefer changing the BMat to glass because I can see it in 3D, because wireframe is only for 2D.

Thanks very much for the help.

I don't think so
Wireframe is for 2d and 3D

or...

You can create a Graphic Override too 😉
