Your screen might be showing the model differently depending on the Visual Style selected from the pre-list saved in the View panel.
- In our example, the Wireframe style is the one in use. However, if you might like to hide the objects as they appear in real life, then you will have to set your visual style to something like the "Hidden" or the "Realistic" view or else.
- Warning! Be aware of performing hard commands while setting the visual style to one of those indicated previously; A higher performance of your VGA graphical card is probably then required as your pc might crash under those conditions. Use them only to evaluate your work progression and explanatory purposes.

- A-WINDOWS- A-WALLS- A-DOORS,- and A-CONSTRUCTION_LINES layers, if they still ON. Just keep the 3D-WALLS layer ON to use it next in step #3.
Open the Layer Manager or type LA to start the layers dialog box and do the modifications indicated above.
