Associating objects with a Wall and Presentation Mode

Postby MartinSilber » Mon, Mar 24 2008, 12:01PM

Hi...couple of Newbie questions

1) How do I associate a countertop to a wall so when you do "Hide wall and associations" the countertop goes away too.

2) I am working on a kitchen design and at some point presentation mode went wonky. There appears to be a lot of "ghosts" in the cabinets. Meaning, the Window (as in a house window, not Microsoft) is appearing in some of the cabinets and you can see the insides of some cabinets. When it start to renders it looks like it will be good, but when it finished it is not. Any thoughts?

Martin,

1) In Detail Room, select the countertop and Associate to Wall. Then (from the Help Manual), make sure the cabinet is NOT associated with the wall, or it will also be hidden: Start in the Custom Layout main workspace with one or more walls: Associations include cabinets and other items that have been associated with the wall.

- Right Click on the wall

- Select Hide Wall and Associations


2 ) You don't mention it, but have you rebooted yet? Sometimes memory is used up, and a reboot is the only way to get back to normal operation.
