2D Fill not alligned to slab

Hello!

 

One of the easy questions I think!

How come my 2D fill is not willing to allign to my slab? 

I want to have a slab of insulation - is there any way to make the 2D fill fit into the section of this element?

 

Thank you!

Yes it must be a composite for the 'fit to skin' option to work.

And as Steve says, you can have a single skin composite.

Could be a Building Materials setting?   Try Fit to Skin.   2021-10-27_11-32-44.jpg

Unfortunately it doesn't work the way I would wish it to work, since the fill is displayed in the way I l've presented on the s reenshots. This concerns the section views, not the plan views. And does not affect the composite structures. The slab I have modelled is a single layered one. 

?  Yes - the setting I am showing you does control how the patterns are fit to skin or to an origin in a Section.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t8ilMVxnmaU

Can you think of what makes this work?  🙂   in the video, they are both moved together up and down in a SECTION view.   One has the Building Material Fill Orientation set to "Fit to Skin", the other Building Material Fill Orientation is set to "Project Origin" .  In case the video does not work or some, the Fill/Building Material in one slab changes as the slabs are moving up and down, the other one does not.  This is controlled by Building Material settings.

The little trick is to use a (1) skin Composite 🙂   Then the Building Material setting for Fill Orientation can be set to "Fit to Skin" so it can stay looking like you want it.

Yes!

 

Thank you all for your replies. 

The answer for my question is that this option doesn't work for a single layered elements in section views. You must use a 1 layered composite structure for the fill to allign to the layer. 

That is a pity in my opinion, but hey, it works!

If you need to scale your fill, use the 3rd option.

Oh, that is an actual slab element not a 2D fill... Doesn't that setting require the use of composites? Only walls in Plan do not "require" this. So the issue here would be that Ged has used a Basic Slab rather than a Single Layer Composite?
