Complex profile wall disappearing in elevations and perspectives

Keckelhoff
Participant
Hello - I have some walls that keep disappearing in 3D mode and exterior elevations. However, they show up on the floor plan. The walls are complex profiles and are set to SEO with the site mesh. You can see below that the windows and doors in the wall are visible, but the wall is missing. The adjacent black metal wall is the same complex profile. It is not a layer issue. Any ideas?
Thanks so much!

It could quite possibly be that T&G detail.

I would not model to that extent in a complex profile.

I would just set the external profile. similar to the ship-lap boards on the other side, with just a small 'V" on the outside.

If you really want the horizontal join in section, then I would simplify it to a single horizontal join, I think you have to leave a small gap if you want individual boards and a small 'V' on the outside.

 

The T&G will never be seen, except in a section, and it would have to be a large scale section before you could really see it.

Then I would use a simple 2D overlay for the large scale sections.
