Can someone help me!
I'm trying to plot in Hidden view but pipes, pumps and other objects are missing when plotting.
I have attached two pictures of how they are shown in paper space and plotting view.
Are the pumps and pipes AutoCAD MEP objects or Fabrication CADmep objects? Any chance of attaching the drawing so I can test here?
They are MvParts and yes they were created with AutoCAD MEP using Content Builder. I can not attach unfortunately but I've attach a sample drawing with the same issues.
I downloaded your files and experience the same problem with your custom parts. However, if I insert an out of the box part (like a base mounted pump) into the drawing, the out of the box part hides just fine. I'm thinking that there must be a problem with how you created the part. Do any of the custom parts that you have created hide correctly? Can you provide steps on how you built your part?
The funny thing is that now everything is working, now the pumps are shown.
But, still like that drawing that I send you has the same problem now.
I'm confused right now, I just don't get what is going on.
Here are the step of how I built my parts:
Manage > Content Builder > Under "All Installed MvParts (US Imperial)" I have diffrent folders for each custom part that I have.
Select a folder, then click" New Block Part" > Add "Name" and "Description" > "Ok"
Select "Type", "Layer Key", and "Subtype" from the MvPart Builder > "Next"
Click "Add Part Size"(square with plus sign) > Select your part form the list > "None" > "Generate Blocks" > Select "All Directions" > Ok > Next
Select "Generate an Image" > Generate > Next
Right click > Add Pipe Connector > Set all your connections > Ok > Right click on your "Connections" > Edit Placement > Set "Connection Type", "Connection Diameter" and "Nominal Connection" > Select position of your connection/s > Click "Ok"
Click "Next" > Finish
I'm not good at giving steps as you can see
