Walls - Toilet Partitions

When you are modelling Toilet Partitions, because they fall under a standard wall category, they show up like a big thick line in a floor plan because they are so slim. It would be much nicer to see them as 2 thin lines…..

This is where your View Filters come in handy.

Create a view filter that looks for any wall that contains the word ‘Toilet’, then we can apply it to the view template for plans and reduce the cut line weight for these walls and voila, thin lines for our toilet partitions.

It still may read as one line bit it is much thinner at the larger scales.

This process can be applied to wall cladding or linings that are separate walls in your model. A good naming convention is the key to ensure your filters work.
