    Visibility of services, cable trays

    Hi there. I'm having fun with the view range in my RCP. There is a ceiling grid & tile at 3000 afl throughout most of the floor. There is an area with no ceiling, i.e. exposed slab above, therefore the services (cable trays, etc) should be visible. However when I change my top range to include the cable trays, they also show through the ceiling tiles (circled in yellow below). I just want to be able to see them in the exposed slab area, as one would when looking up.

    Thanks for any assistance.

    Use a Plan region

    Plan Region OR change your view discipline from one of the service types (i.e. Electrical, Mechanical, Plumbing) to Coordination. The "service" types shifts a large number of elements into displaying as an underlay which is another reason why you'd see cable tray above ceilings.

    Thanks Robert. It is already set to Coordination. I guess a plan region is the answer - it just seems messy.

    Change the view discipline to Architectural and that problem goes away
