I'm documenting some kitchens and I was wondering, is there a way to have the floor plan cut plane to "cut" through objects and not see them as if standing above?
In "normal plans" you don't want to, as it is a representation and all you care from the cut plane to cut is "structure" and partition (walls, slabs, stairs etc". If you have your cut height at 1100 and all your furniture are cut it will obviously look weird.
But on a joinery plan, I want that table to be cut at 800 and only see the cut extend of the legs (and add some annotation for wheels). Is that possible somehow? Does it only depend on each object's GDL? (all joinery on the screenshot are Ci Cabinet, the display can be set from MVO). Is there a neat workaround, out of modelling the whole table with slabs and columns or duplicating it and using SOEs?
Thank you, Barry, I reckon that's my best shot here, turning into a Morph and working out the display. I've not seen any object that allows you to choose their cut plan and attribute from MVO than Ci Cabinets. Are you familiar with these guys? Quite awesome stuff!
Pretty clear from the left side, I got 3 duplicated views with different MVO, one at 800 AFFL, one 1100 and one 1800. COmbined with specific layer combo for specific anno and object displays set right, you can potentially do CD doco for joinery.
I haven't yet explored all of @Podolsky 's incredible template yet, he might have created such objects. That template allows you to control all labels visibility directly from MVO so I wouldn't be surprised to find more on that topic.
You're right, it is more like the Cabinet's floor height cut plan, not related to the view's C-P. Quite neat as it allows you to control how one cabinet displays independently from the view's cut plane.
I'm just starting with Ci tools, cabinet electrical windows and door and I find them quite handy if one wants to add a level of BIM workflow without having sufficient GDL skills to code this kind of monster alone.
