Composite Fills in v17

G D Tune
Participant
Is there any way of altering the way a composite fill shows in section as opposed to plan. For example - using a 'glass fibre insulation' fill in a wall is great for sectional view, but in plan I just want to see a solid fill (less detail) Can this be altered by adjusting it to a scale, or by the viewset parameters? (Don't want to loose the whole composite though - ie wall, cavity + cladding)

thanks
Geoff

Model View Options have the ability to show or override cut fills, but not change what they are, unfortunately.

One possible work-around, though, could be to have pen sets adapted to do what you want. You could have a unique pen for your insulation fill, and in the Pen Set used for plan view make that pen the same colour as its background.

Hope this helps.
