Skins in composite walls - visibility




is there a setting that makes a skin (ei. wall tiles) part of the composite but can be turned off from showing in the plans. For example I want wall tiles to be part of composite A1 (solid wall with wall tiles), but in my floorplans I dont want to see wall tiles, only solid wall. At the same time I want to have an option to turn the wall tiles on for schedules.


Kind regards

Sounds like you want to look at Partial Structure Display.




The composite skins can then be set as 'core', 'finish' or 'other', and you control their visibility with the Partial Structure Display.

Be aware though, you need a new set of dimensions for each PSD, as they are linked to each display.

Thank you, that makes sense.
