unable to delete point group

858 Views, 2 Replies

I am using C3D 2011 x64 on a Win7 64 bit macine.


I am unable to delete two point groups from my Tool Space. Both point groups are empty with no points configured for use with them. How do I get rid of them? When the point groups are selected nothing shows up in the lower window. One of the point groups has the ! mark on it.


Any help would be appreciated.

Not sure if this is it, but did you use the point group do generate a surface?

The exclamation point you are seeing means that the point group needs to be updated.  Even if there are no points in the point group, it still has to be updated before you can delete it.  Right-click on the point group, select Update, right-click on it again, then Delete.  That should do it.  Keep in mind, the All Points point group CANNOT be deleted or edited.
