I just upgraded to Autocad 2011 and I'm having problems with my osnaps when working on a 3d solid model. I'm working in a SW isometric view and I'm trying to snap to an endpoint that is "hidden" or behind another solid object. I can't get my snap to snap to anything that is behind other solid objects. The face or edge of the solid object that is in front of the object I'm trying to snap to will highlight instead.
I'm sure there must be a setting somewhere that I need to change but I haven't found it yet. Any ideas? I'm getting frustrated!
Switch to 3D wireframe and you will be able to grab the previously hidden endpoints.
When that happens, 2D wireframe WILL work. I forgot they changed the behavior of this in 2011 (I've gone back to 2010 because of issues with 2011).
Not sure if it's a permanent fix but a reboot has my osnaps working correctly, for the moment.
I'm hoping this was just some flukey thing and not a problem that is going to come and go.
Thanks for the help!
