Symbolic Line Types in Composites

Geoff Briggs
I really like the fact that we can now individually define all the lines in composites. Currently this is limited to the standard line types. Extending this feature to include symbolic line types would greatly expand it's usefulness. For example it would then be easy to get batt insulation to run right down the middle of a cavity, or by using custom contours to build walls representing rock, stone, board & batten and other natural materials.

Yes, you read that correctly, we are in the US but use the INT version.

Good catch, Geoff! I vote for it if only for consistency - user defined fills can be used for the composite skin - so why not user-defined line types? I'm sure I would fine uses for it such as you mention as well.
