The fill colour of certain parts (typically concrete parts) have the cut symbology set to use a solid fill. In some situations this fill can obscure linework in the Forward View.
One solution is to modify the parts involved.
To do this copy the part(s) concerned to the project dataset and modify the Cut Patterns symbology.
In this example from the Swedish dataset the Grundplatta (foundation slab) part has the Cut Fill Toggle set On using colour 14 (grey when the default colour table is active). right-click on the part and select Copy:
Expand the project dataset tree (which will be empty if this is being done for the first time on your project) and past into the right hand panel of the dialog|:
This will automatically create a new xml file and family to contain the duplicated part.
Edit the Cut Patterns properties: Untick Cut Fill Toggle; Tick Pattern; Change the Pattern Type to patterning and in this example the pattern Weight from ByLevel (5) which is far too heavy, to weight 0 (patterns generally need to be weight 0).
Then move to the right and set the pattern properties appropriately, in this example:
For other patterns the cell scale may vary, or you may wish to change the cell angle or scale to suit your own conventions or preferences. Generally both spacing values will be 0 unless the pattern selected is designed with a particular spacing in mind.
Save your changes to the dataset. Note that the original family is now highlighted in blue and the copied part in red to identify that a duplicate part exists in the project dataset. The properties of a duplicate part will always override those of the original.
Usually the symbology of elements using the modified part(s) displayed on screen will update immediately depending on the Model you are working in. Cached views will need to be updated to see changes.
