Elevation: Railing Segment Contour

Lingwisyer

Hi all,

Is there some way to remove the contour line between railing segments?

I have turned off all the Post and Inner Post contours and set them both to zero size yet the divisions still show in elevation and section. The posts are required to be visible for fixing spacing by post, which is a known design flaw, but none the less...

You can reduce the width of the posts to 0.01 mm. If you go below that, it will default to 10 mm.

Reducing the post height to zero will break the distribution by post. I have left them at 5 mm in height which still works.

No matter how much I try I can not set the post width to less that 10mm.
I can adjust the top height so it is offset from the top by the height of the segment - making it zero height - but not sure if this will affect the fixings.
If I adjust the height I don't see any lines for the posts in elevation/3D.

What I have done though, is open a standard post object, and commented out all of the scripts.
Then saved this as my 'Invisible' post.
Use this and you will see no post but will still have the ability to use fixing based on post position.
