Walls and objects merging in section


I've been struggling with sections for a while now and thought I'd ask how to solve instead of manually working around it every time. It feels like there should be a simple way of solving it, I just can't figure it out.

My problem is that walls and slabs keep merging with objects in sections. It's great that walls, slabs and roofs merge, but I would like to be able to decide what should merge and what shouldn't. I've tried different layers with different intersection numbers, doing it with graphic overrides, but I just can't get it to work. I should add that I want it to work with transparent fills.

Thank you

I have the same problem and anyway the outlines of the elements are merging even if the fills are different.

There should be an option to not merge lines, because in section you want to show how a floor outlines a beam outlines a profile etc. basic architecture presentation.

I have no idea why something like this becomes so difficult.

Hi all,

I am scratching my head about how to make this work too, it seems like none of the above works for me either. Has anyone found the holy grail yet? 🙂

Still looking?
