Does ArchiCAD offer depth of field to 2d elevations and sections

Anonymous

Does ArchiCAD offer the ability to gradually fade out elements that are distant when looking in elevations or sections? This is something which is great in Revit.

No, there is no such built-in feature.
Usually, this effect is approximated by placing a Gradient Fill on top of those parts of the Section/Elevation that are farther from the Section/Elevation Cut Plane.
The Gradient changes from a White Pen to a Transparent Pen, thereby creating this gradual fadeout effect.

Not a gradual fade out but it does have a 'Marked Distance' option in sections and elevations, that automatically reduces the pen thickness and colour in the marked distance area.
There is only one such distance are though for each section/elevation.

In AC21, there were a number of editing improvements, so you can break and offset each line - Section/Elevation Line, Marked Distance Line and Depth Line.

I just found this great video by the Boston Society of Architects/AIA, with Christopher DeOrsay from Campbell Smith Architects, presenting some gradient fill technics on AC24.
