Hatching Cut Surfaces in Section Views

Postby elsordo » Sat Jul 25, 2020 2:25 am

I have an interesting problem I would like to solve.

When applying a section cut to an ARCH model, say of a house, the section cut goes across walls and structures that are constructed from concrete, wood, dirt, ... And all of the cut surfaces are hatched using specification provided by the "Cut Surface Display" property. In essence, all cut surfaces are displayed identically irregardless of their material.

Is there a way to have specify the hatching on a per-cut-face basis?

This is not possible in the current version. I have started work on it a couple of times, but it has so far always been bumped by higher priorities.

Thanks for the reply.

FC has become a very useful tool.
