There are 5 or 6 surfaces in the attached dwg. When i export via NWCOUT or open the dwg directly in Navisworks the largest surface is missing. It is on the same layer and has same style as other surfaces that do export correctly.
Has anyone encountered this before and found a solution? I have done a search and come up with nothing.
Thanks in advance.
Dang, that one surface is stubborn. I tried several things and could not get NavisWorks to read it.
Finally, I assigned a style that shows the tin, extracted the triangles and then created an NWC of those. That worked so you see the surface in NavisWorks, but it's not really a surface, it's four thousand 3d faces.
I don't know why this is happening with this surface. I suggest you create an Autodesk support incident and see if they can tell you what's going on here.
Sorry for the delayed response but I have been on leave. Thanks for spending your time having a look for me I appreciate it. Its certainly a strange occurance, I will open a support incident as you recommend and report back any solution. Otherwise i will extract the triangles as a crude workaround.
I discovered that when someone else logged onto my machine for the first time and started up Civil 3D, they were able to view the surface correctly in Object Viewer and also export to Navisworks via NWCOUT.
I logged back in and tried switching my profile within AutoCAD but still came up with the error.
Therefore i saved all my AutoCAD profiles/settings/pgp files etc and cleared the registry for AutoCAD against my windows profile on this pc. For me this meant deleting R19.0 folder via the steps below.
Start - reg.exe -
HKEY_CUURENT_USER - Software - Autodesk - AutoCAD - R19.0.
Above solution worked for me. Other users in my team have had same problem since Hotfix 3 was installed.
