SHOWING WHAT IS PLACED BELOW THE ROOF

Cadimage Coverings Pen Settings

When you need to show what is below your roof and have a Cadimage Covering applied you will need a transparent background pen for the plan view.Screen Shot 2014-09-18 at 11.32.20 AM

Select the covering and open the Selection Settings. Under the Cladding tab go to the view attributes and set the background pen to 0 Transparent. This can be repeated for edge conditions pen settings to create “transparent” flashing, gutters, ridge and barge elements as well.Screen Shot 2014-09-18 at 11.33.05 AM

The result is a fully transparent roof element in floor plan view.  This will allow you to view elements below the covering in model space as well as on the sheet with multiple layered plans.
