A user has two elements with two different Part assignments each with a different Definition level but the same Drawing Symbology levels as shown in the images below.
The Level symbology assigned by default are as shown.
A section has been generated like this:
He would like to control the visibility of the two elements independently, but if level A-WALL is turned off from Level Display dialog, both of the walls disappear.
When using Level Display one can’t control the visibility of one element independently of another when they’re on the same level. Instead, the Parts need to use separate Cut Plane and Forward View levels so that they can be displayed independently.
The following changes were made using Dataset Explorer:
Now when deselecting one of these Levels from Level Display, only one element disappears:
Thus one can selectively control Level display in Drawing Views.
Selective control of display of elements in Drawing/Saved View can be achieved in AECOsim CONNECT using Display Rules.
For the same set of walls, a section has been generated like this:
Now follow the instructions as below:
a) Open ‘Display Style’ List. Then select ‘Open Display Styles Dialog’
