I have a surface below the horizontal plane with an object above which I am using to cast a shadow. (The attached is just a demonstration. In the main model I am trying out an awning over a garden so there are objects both above and below the horizontal origin plane which is set to the house floor level.)
However, the horizontal plane through the origin is taking shadows as shown. I have tried all the different ‘Default Styles’ but the only one that appears to not have a ‘hidden’ horizontal plane that takes shadows is the X-ray style which does not give a normal observer’s view. The other styles offered appear to relate to the look of the model lines and features rather than the scene.
Have I missed a setting or a style somewhere or is it not possible? I am trying to avoid moving my whole model above the ground plane (there are a lot of components) but moving the origin down could be an option if that is possible.Demonstration Model v1 (shadow).skp (238.3 KB)
