removal of contour lines from walls


Hello group. This image is extremely simple, but my question is very technical.
How do I make the wall have only 1 contour projection line? In this picture, I applied the wall view in projection, continuous projection line and no end lines, however I can't find a way to hide both the outer line and the inner line of the wall profile.
I couldn't find anything in the manual that talks about this.

Walls have thickness and will always show both lines

isn't there some way to hide the interior line?
In my city, project approval only considers the face of the exterior wall.

every time I have to approve a project I have to redo the perimeter with hachure and hide the walls,

Not that I'm aware of.


I recommend creating a wall composite with only one core element, then you can control the pens to only show on the outside on none on the sides. This would require creating a lot of variants if you have multiple thickness. Otherwise draw a fat polyline around your external building as a 2D outline. If it doesnt suit, I hope you are able to achieve it another way. Best wishes.

And just to add that if you do have multiple thicknesses, you can use a complex profile wall instead of a composite. You can control the contour visibility for each edge and still be able to.adjust the wall thickness.
