How to control shadows in elevations with Graphic Override?

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi, I've been trying to turn on and off shadows in my different elevations through the use of Graphic Overrides, I've made a special hatch for the shadow that I've selected to be transparent in my override but it doesn´t seem to work. Is there any other way to do it?

kind regards Fredrik

Hi.

Look into this:

For the shadows, use a rule

Criteria:
Element type: 3D element (so it doesn't change other drafting fills, like story level markers)

Override Style:
Fill type: air space or background (override drafting fills)
Fill background pen: 0 (override drafting fills)

But I think there might be a bug in the elevation tool, because looks like you cannot control the shadow in marked distant area.

Best regards.
