How do you do a 3d or Elevation with only showing the framing and not any exterior finishing. I just want to see the stick framing of the house.

Open your 3D drawing and open the "options" tab. Click on "load Material File (black arrow) and select stick frame. That will remove most of the components. Click on Extraction options (red arrow) and turn off everything else you don't want to see and turn on the framing components you do want to see. When you are done you just reset your extraction options and load the default 3D material file to revert back.

WBR, I believe you mentioned you were on version 14. I haven't used version 14 in a while, but when you go to build a 3d model and the dialog box opens, make sure you check the box for the framing area. Then you can edit any of the surfaces to shut off their visibility. There are different ways you can get the same result - I did the rendering below in version 14 to show you an example.

One word of advice, if you have set textures, colors, and material definations be sure to save them to a new material file prior to do this or you will lose all that work. I learned the hard way.

Matt, as Martin said above, you have to CHECK the FRAMING section of EXTRACTION OPTIONS

Hello there, I tried what Martin said and it worked out and now I don't know how to reset it. Can you tell me step by step on that?

Thank you

How can I go back from extracting frame to having all the materials turned on, without going to he "Material" and selecting one by one the options that were turned off?

Reload the default material file.
