Another Exterior Elevation that shows the Siding thru the Exterior Doors
SoftPlan Version:
2018

Bill, I have another Elevation that shows the Exterior Siding thru the Exterior Doors. The 3D view doesn't show the Siding thru the Doors. Have you seen this problem?

 

Thanks

Rick

Elevations

Elevations are just hollow shells. As a result you can see all the way through the house to the other side. If you want to use textured elevation images you can increase the opacity of the glazing to 100% so you don't see through the glass.

I set all the Glazing to 100%. I think you can see that on the Windows in the Screen Shot. The 3D view is all correct. I have attached another 3D view.

 

Thanks

Rick

Doors

Are these custom made doors or doors that came with SoftPlan? It could be that the glazing is not placed properly in the elevation opening for the doors. I can't really tell without having the files.

As a temporary work-around you could place a plane behind the windows to block the view to the rear of the house. If you place the planes on a layer and turn the layer off you won't see the plane in the plan but it will still show in 3D.

I made them from Doors and Windows already in the System Library. I just added Transoms above them.

 

Thanks

What happens if you insert the same doors but without the transoms? If they work correctly without the transoms report it to SoftPlan tech as a bug.

I just made another door without the Transoms, and it worked as it should. I was going to add a Transom to it and see if I still have the same problem. I'll let you know what I find.

 

Thanks Bill for all of your help
