Why does the window line disappear from the brick part?

Windows are made of prisms.
And the window lines disappeared from the brick part.
I would like to know about the rules between PRISM and walls.
Where can I study?

In this picture, the insulation has a window and the brick is another wall with an opening in it.
It seems like you just need to specify a core, but if you specify two cores, only one will appear.

So you have two separate walls next to each other?

If so, then it is no surprise, as the window can only belong to one wall.

The brick (red?) wall has no idea the window is there.

Maybe you could try display order, but I am not sure if that will work.

 

But I don't really see a problem.

It may look strange when you zoom in and see it on screen with the colours, but what happens when you print it.

Unless you are printing a very large scale detail in colour, I don't think you will notice a thing wrong.

thank you.
You are saying that your opinion is based on the value of the display order.
I will study more and then tell you.

I don't really know, I am just suggesting it as an option.

If they are 2 separate walls one may be displaying on top of the other.

Windows and doors do not have a display order, because they are a part of the wall.

But the walls themselves should.

I can't say for sure if it will work or not without trying to set up the scenario for myself.

And as I don't have your window object or wall composites, nor have any real idea how you have modelled it, that would be almost impossible for me to replicate.

So just making a suggestion for you to check.

thank you.
What I am saying is that I will test several things based on what you said and ask the question again.
Thank you always. ^^
