Missing details in elevation and 3d windows

Bob Moore

Started a new project in Archicad 22 and the grids don't show up in the window and doors in the elevation even though They do in the library view.

Have I changed a setting by mistake? It worked on the last project.

Thanks

I don't use the standard GS windows, but there are 2 things that may be the cause that I can think of.

Is the grid (I call them glazing bars) on one side of the glass only?
If so turning on transparency in the elevation settings may help.
If transparency is not an option, is there an option for grids to both sides?

Or is it a 3D Level Of Detail setting - either in the MVO or in the object itself.

The grid (muttin’s, glazing bars, mullions) is set to throughout and the transparency is on.

I’ll check theMVO settings.

Thanks.

I change the MVO setting to FULL DETAIL and it worked

Also, what window library so you use?

Thanks again

The old "Full detail in the MVO" trick!

The company I work for has its own window objects.
Loosely based on the GS windows way back from version 6.5.
But they have been heavily modified now with new features and new windows created as we need.
Much simpler than the current GS windows in that there are not so many macros calling other macros (if you have ever looked at their scripts).
We don't have all of the options such as ganging, return skins at reveals, Level Of Detail, etc., but we find we don't really need any of this with the residential homes we build.
