I created a new wall,     it shows in plan, and section cuts, but not in 3d model.

 

Any idea why?

A couple of Ideas,
Check the height/offset
Is the wall being extracted into the 3d model (framing doesn’t show by default)
There is a check box on the common tab for the wall that must be checked. Something like extract in model.
When you edit the wall definition the same checkbox is found in the options. It may be unchecked.

Also, if you are using uncommon materials, they may not be set to be displayed in 3D, so be sure to check the materials list to see if they are checked to display.

A few of the materials (for example RIGID INSULATION) do NOT show in the 3D.

 

Can you post your wall definition (or Screenshots of it) here?

I think i just ran into that today, and as Mark said, in the material Texture edit, the walls and materials of the walls might be turned off. 

 

My issue was that I had the drywall turned off.

I had my drywall set as fibreboard,  turning it to drywall worked.

 

Thanks
