While working with Assemblies in Inventor 2011.A user is unable to open/view two parts of worm and a worm gear.

Only a worm is displayed.


The user can however see a worm and a worm gear under model browser.


What could be the problem and how can this be fixed.I have so far tried repairing the installation without uninstalling the software.



The user follows this path to open the above mentioned.


New-Design-Spur Gears-Worm Gears and accepts the default settings.

Spur and Bevel Gears open their assemblies without a problem.


Kindly assist.

I found a fix for the problem,....

The computer was also developing some problems, so we formatted and did a new installation.

Evereything now works fine.
