I'm trying to create an RCP using a 3D document, and I didn't like that the grid lines are displayed as a solid line, and I couldn't do anything to change the line type. I want the line to be dashed.
So after a few hours of trial and error, I have copied/pasted the grids from the floor plan to the 3D document and now the grids are displayed as I would like them to be displayed, but then, those grids are not displayed in the floor plan at all. So now I have two sets of grids that are not connected in any way...
I would like to have the same grid system that I can control from the floor plan and from the 3D document and be able to show the grid lines in the 3D document as a dashed line.
Is that possible?

btw, can someone change my username from "filip" to "Filip"?
After some more testing, I've found out that this method works only with the 0 ground floor, and 1. 1st floor, everything below ground floor and up from the 1st floor, gridlines are not visible in the 3D document.
Gridlines are visible in the floor plans on all stories, and that setting is set in the gridlines settings - show on all stories
So, I'm back to square one with one more problem 🙂
The Grid element is a GDL object. Thus, its 2D representation can be different from the 3D representation. In this case, when we generate a 3D document, it is generated from the 3D view, this is why the Grid's 2D linetype does not appear in the 3D document. There is no option to change the linetype under 3D View options either.
I hope this explains the situation. Unfortunately, we don't have any other workaround that copying the grids from floorplans and hide the generated grid in 3D views or 3D Documents (there is an option to hide the grids in 3D under 3D View options)
If you have any questions, feel free to ask me again!
