    Arch wall is showing up on top of my metal stud framing.......

    I am showing metal stud framing inside of this wall and the wall is always showing up on top of my studs/headers etc.

    I want the framing to be on top of the wall........ is there a way to change this?? there is no send to back command on these object because they are 3d.

    Is there a hierarchy option that I can check off to show struct columns and framing above walls??

    See attached screenshot!!!

    No but I'm pretty sure it will print okay.

    Just tried to plot it... it plots exactly how is look onscreen with grayed out wall on top of metal stud framing.... I guess i will need to get into the wall layers and set different materals to them but this is way more work than I wanted to get into here.

    Can you create a filter to set the arch walls to transparent?

    You need to select the column and then unjoin it from the wall. (Modify|Columns tab >Geometry>pull down Join to Unjoin).
    Classic trick, but does the job. This always happens when an element is placed fully into another element it automatically joins.
