Hi,

Any idea why i am getting green recyle arrows in browser and green corner incidicator in .idw file.

What does it represent? 

if it comes because of design error then where to look for the mistake.

Thanks.

It merely indicates that the view has not yet finished generating and you are seeing an imprecise view.  Usually these disappear in a few seconds, but may take much longer depending on complexity of view and your computer's processing power.  If they never go away, then there is a problem.

 

Please remember to post your Inventor version and machine specs on the original post.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

I left the computer for more than an hour.  Still nothing changed.  I use inv2013 with 16gb ram. 64bit win7 processor.

Then I saved it as it is.  Nothing changed.  I closed the session.  Restarted inv and .idw file.  now everything seems to be ok.

Thanks.

Anyone ever figure this out? I am still getting these green corners on my drawing. I leave it almost all day and when I export to PDF is looks shady. It seems as if the model will not refresh. weird...

Right click on the view.. Is there an option to "make view precise" or "make view raster"

As Mcgyvr you need to make it precise, There is also a setting your application options to disable this ...so that all the views update upon opening. It will make them take a bit longer to open, but your views will be up to date each time.

I did find in the "Drawing View" windows at the bottom it has the check box stating "Raster View Only". It was checked so I unchecked it and the green corners went away. Good enough for me, thanks!
