I have lost the ability to create a pipe network in a single drawing. Sorta. I can create a pipe network, and label it, and see it in my toolspace, but it won't display it for any style in any format. I can bring in a data reference and label those, but can not see pipe or structure outlines or anything to that end. I have tried to recover, audit, purge. I am at the end, currently creating the pipe network, data referencing it in, and then just drawing lines between the labels.
Anybody have any ideas?
Silly question but need to ask. All layers turned on and thawed?
Whoops, forgot about my co-worker logged in. But yep. Everything turned on, nothing frozen. I literally saved a new test file, deleted everything, purged, and audited, and the problem still exists.
If you look at your pipe properties, you are using the style Standard. No good. You need to use a template file.
Also, you have no parts loaded in your parts list. You can't see something that is not there. You have to create a part list or use a template file.
I don't think that is the issue Todd as I have opened up the drawing as well and imported all our company settings. Still unable to draw or display pipes.Still tinkering to see if I can find out why this might be happening.
There are no parts in the catalog. You can't draw parts if they are not there.
Sorry about that Todd. I was talking to someone else at the same time I was typing my reply. Fixed my post.
If the Pipe Catalog that the parts list references does not exist on your machine the list will come up blank I think. I know when I imported our settings, parts list and reference our pipe catalog the issue still exists. Makes me think there is a drawing setting somewhere that is causing the display issue.
I copied over a few different styles and a part list from one that works and still nothing for me either. i can then swap parts to the new parts list, and the same thing occurs.
I think I got it.
In the Display Manager Settings, both the structure and pipes are set up to not display.
Type in DISPLAYMANAGER on Command Line and Browse to Representations by Object. Find pipes and structures and make sure General Display settings have Model and Plan checked.
