- I am detailing a kitchen and want to include above and blow kitchen counter plans. When i set the cutting plane lower than the counter height, i still don't see the cabinet sides... What am i doing wrong?
Thanks a lot!

@Polar Bear Archicad's 3D objects typically only ever show a top down projection on a floor plan, they don't respond to cutting planes. Your best alternative is to create a 3D Document with cut planes at the required height, this usually works depending on your expectations from the 3D model and what has been included by the developers.

After responding privately and by videoconference to POLAR BEAR, here is the principle of easy 2D personalization of an object. 1 - Select and open object 2 - Create a boolean variable (ex:"varr")
3 - Into "2D Symbol" draw your 2D personalization of the object on the layer "1"
4 - Into 2D script write these lines of code :
IF varr THEN !If the condition "varr" is validated then ...
FRAGMENT2 1,3 !Call of the 2D drawing found on layer "1" in the "2D Symbol" tab
ELSE !If the condition "varr" is NOT validated then ...
! Here keep the native 2D script of the object
ENDIF !End of IF command
5 - If you want or need to customize the object personalization interface in order to integrate this new variable, just add in the interface script :
UI_OUTFIELD "Here my own 2D", 0, 0, 100. ! X,Y,text field width
UI_INFIELD "varr", 0, 15 ! X,Y
