Turning off hole/extrusion visual

Jambagts

Hi,

 

Is there a way to turn off the markers/visuals of when archicad detects a 'hole' in walls (image 1).  As you can see on the second image underneath the visual of the hole there is a facade (curtain wall), which i would like to be visible in the floor plan instead. Can anyone help me?

Hi @Jambagts 

 

Please, could you share an elevation of that? I cannot understand your need.

Thanks.

I would like the green selection to be visible in my floor plan exports. So I'm looking for a way to turn off the 'hole'/gap/extrusion visual with the line and gray box on top of it.

Hi @Jambagts 

 

There could be many ways to solve this depending on the element types you use.

Let's see an example using a curtain wall: You could draw a two parts wall with different heights, one (A) for hosting the door and the other (B) to be located under the curtain wall.

Another example could be using windows instead of a curtain wall, so you mantain the same full height wall for everything. May be you would need to change the representation for Window A to be overhead instead of symbolic, just check.

Last, but not least, other adjustments in Floor Plan Display could be needed depending on the element's height and floor plan display view range.

Don't forget to check Display Order too.

 

I hope this helps.
