So, i am looking for the “best” way to show “hidden” lines in LayOut as dashed:
Lines below ground shown as dashed.
This was done by exploding the viewport, selecting lines, setting to dashed.
But that was cumbersome, as some lines were extending from below- to above- ground, so they needed to be redrawn as 2 separate.
So, i guess that’s a common problem with a number of ways to address?
What i tried out and/or was searching for:
I was hoping for a dashed line-style in SU, and then stack a viewoprt with that above one with solid lines…
But it seems there’s no way for that.
I think the dashed-line plugin in SU won’t help, because i also need to show the bleow-earth stuff as solid lines in other LayOut pages.
I tried Style Builder quickly, but that’s only for Sketchy line-styles… Trying to create a dashed style, i found out these styles are always scaled to fit, so this will never lead to a CAD(-ish) look.
But here it seemed to me just this was achieved:
Tried to use the hidden-line option in styles, with a temporaty surface between camera and object, but this shows also hidden lines inside the building, i guess to only get the lines of the face i would need to combine it with a section-cut, or actually multiple ones, as the building face is not all on one plane… not practical i think.
I have read
But that is more about lines that ARE dashed, and not about a way to SHOW all lines AS dashed…
