    Hi Mike,

    I am getting inconsistent results for door openings on my floor plans.

    As you can see from the outside doors in the image below, some of the door openings are showing up and some are not. All door openings are the same height at 6’8″.

    Also some windows are not showing up. Seemed to work fine on 2019 pro, but after I updated to 2020 subscription, the openings are not showing?

    Hello Duncan!

    First, be sure that your are using the ConDoc PRO drawing set.  ConDoc LT is loaded on a fresh install by default.  My guess is this is the issue.

    If your windows aren’t showing, you can adjust the height of the section plane.  first go to the plan scene that doesn’t look right.  choose view > section planes…  Move the orange one until it is cutting all of the windows/openings.  No need to update any scenes, they remember which section plane is active, doesn’t matter that you moved it.

    Any wall that is below an opening will add to the hatch and close up your openings.  This is rare because usually models are sliced right at the finished floor, so openings shouldn’t have a wall below.  It can happen on exterior doors or multi-level structures.  You can drill into this wall, group just the portion that is below the door and add it to the 3d graphic layer.  It will no show in plan, but will show in section, elevation, and perspective.

    I seem to be getting the same section plane set up no matter which drawing set I pick.

    In the image below there is a model done in 2019 version and 2020 version on the right. Both are using the Arch Pro drawing set using the existing conditions plan from the Plan Generator.

    In the 2020 version I get this section plane configuration in plan, section and elevation?
