Render issue?

Hi, I'm having some difficulties seeing a 3D picture of a series of portals I am constructing. At some point the portals vanish into thin air in the 3D window, while they are still there in the floor plans. Is it something in the settings I need to adjust or am I missing something else? Any tips are appreciated?

I'm using archicad 11 on a mac.

Thanks,

P.S. I'm attaching a jpg of what I'm seeing. Some beams don't completely vanish, other are completely gone. The dimension of the beams are height 500 mm, width 100mm. In some cases I only see a surface in the 3D window and not the 100mm width of the beam. ..... strange....

Check to see if you have duplicate beams occurring in the same spot. Archicad tends not to like that kind of alternate reality.

Thanks Ted,

I had some wall elements of different proportions, however also in this parallel patern, in a hidden layer. I removed these, and now it shows perfectly!

Thanks a lot.

Excellent. So now I look silly, instead of Ted. Oh, well.
