    Default Different Visual style in drawing - see through

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    hello there, long time no post.
    i got a little question on visual styles.
    is it possible to use different style in the same layout? i explain,
    when using MVIEW to define the drawing you can define the Shadeplot too right? so how can i doo to define an object as "see trough" when i define my space as Hidden?
    this would be very useful to show detail behinh wall for instance

    Any idea? i'm open to every idea.

    thanks in advance

    I have just looked at the Visual Styles Manager, styles are independant for each viewport.

    Does that help ?

    sorry no, i'm looking for a way to set see trough on an object base.
    ie; to see detail behind a wall , inside furniture etc. but without having to do an exploded view.
    thanks again.

    You can try to copy the view port and then set 1 to display as shaded and then set the second to wire frame. After that use the drawing order to place the wire frame on top of the shaded image.
    I did not have time to test it but I did something similar to this before.
