Disappearing lines (renovation + section)

BrunoMCP
Participant

Hello to all!

At my office we've been noticing that when we use renovation filters some lines that should be visible in section are not.

Between an existing mesh and a new wall, for example.

If the polygon of a demolished mesh and an existing one coincide, I understand why there would be no line, but I don't think the wall should have anything to do with it.

This is best explained by the pictures attached.

Any thoughts?

Try changing the override filter settings and place a checkmark into "Do not intersect" option of the To be demolished part:

Hey

I've been trying to replicate the issue, as I don't remember where the issue was.

The "Do not Intersect" option does make a difference, but only if you don't make both Existing and Demolishing not intersect, strangely enough.

Personally, I don't see why would mesh and wall ever intersect.

Attaching pictures for reference.
