Though I solved the previous problem, now I'm facing it again in a different form. I'm calling the "good working" object as a macro in another and even if I put the MODEL SURFACE in the calling script the lines still don't appear.
Do you or anyone else know any limitation of the MODEL SURFACE function when called in a macro??
Thanks Guys, It was actually my mistake. AC merged the parts because I used a PLACEGROUP ADDGROUP solid element operation on top of all. This had actually nothing to do with the macro call. I'm starting to really like the control over the section cut. I think I can finally make my curtain wall object generate a CD level of details automatically.
since it gives me even more control. I'd really love to use symbol fills to automatically represent a part of the section cut (like in the attached example), so that it's not actually generated as 3D geometry, but rather "mapped" as a drawing detail in the section window over a simplified contour element. My current issue is that I cannot seem to be able to set the local coordinate for the symbol fill which would be key to this great workflow. The COOR command only seems to affect the 3D window not the section cut.
Does anyone know how to set the local origin for a section fill set by the SECT_ATTRS???
