walls visible on multiple stories?

Anonymous
Not applicable
I have a split leve reno. i have a foundation story, groung floor story, and main floor story. i need the walls on the ground floor to also appear on the main floor, but not on the foundation story. the only choice i have in the wall default settings is "show on home story" or "show on all relevant stories" if i choose home story the walls don't appear on the main floor or foundation, but if i choose all relevant stories, they show up on the foundation story. so how do i deal with this?

Can you use layers to turn them off at foundation level?

i suppose so, but it seems a bit cumbersome. i'll try it though. it's better than anything i had come up with.

Try adjusting the cut plane settings, how far up/down you see in the View settings.

To use the Floor Plan Cut Plane, the Wall's Floor Plan Display must not be set to Symbolic Cut, and the Show on Stories should be All Relevant Stories.

Thanks everyone. i had to play with the stories to get some of the walls actually below a story and others above, then it seemed to work.

Digging up another older tread. Almost a decade old!

 

I have walls on storey 4. They continue up from storey 4 only.
Below storey 4 is storey 3 and 2. The particular wall does not cross either of these storeys.

 

Then, on Storey 1, I need to create a ceiling plan which should show the walls of storey 4.

I can't seem to figure out how to do this.

 

In short:
I need to show walls which has a home storey 3 storeys above the storey I need to show them on.

 

Any advise would appreciated.

Change your FPCP settings to show 3 above for that plan View with the walls you are wanting to show set to Relevant Stories? That is if you do not have anything on stories 2 and 3 that are set to Relevant Stories...
