Does section tool work on groups and components of walls ?

Postby jwhida » Tue Feb 06, 2018 10:02 am

Hi,

I am not sure if i am doing something wrong, but when i group walls :wall-tool: , they no longer generate section fills.
If i explode the group of walls and recreate section hatching the section fills appear.

Am i doing something wrong or is section hatching only created for first level objects ?

Hi jwhida,

Thank you for your post.

At the moment the Section Hatching Tool only works when it has direct contact with the first/top level of the walls. If you are wanting to group your walls together, what I would recommend to do is to add the section cut plane inside the group as well and then create the section hatching whilst you're still inside the group of walls.

Would you be able to please let me know if this fixes the issue you're having?
Kind Regards,
Grant
