I am using a mix of ORTHO views and the <view> command for a drawing set. the ortho views that I imported into the SSM work fine, all geometry shows up. The views I have from the <view> command and the SSM, some of the piping geometry
does not show up. all of the piping is on the same layer. same properties. just some do not show up.
Also, the views always plot as <3d hidden> regardless of what I set and save them at on the sheet. As a trial, I changed one sheet to <shaded> and plotted it showed as <3d hidden> then changed to <2d wireframe> and plotted it showing <3d hidden>
I am running out of ideas.
anyone have a suggestion?
Can you please provide us the drawing and also a screenshot of the plot settings.Please also attach the plot styles, if you are using any.
what email should I send the drawing to?
couple of things to check/try/play with
on the properties tab of the viewport you can set 'shade plot'
also top left area of print dialogue box has shade plot drop down
different combos between these can affect the output
although, the views generated using the ortho part of plant arent viewports looking at the model, they are like using solprof...you get what you get, no adjusting display settings, they are a snapshot of a view in the model with hidden edges removed
ok I can change how it plots and it's working properly again - strage that happened in the first place.
thanks for pointing out the <shade plot> in the properties.
The geometry is still missing in <hidden> <3d hidden>
it shows up with <wireframe> and <shades of grey> etc. during plots
Visually everything is ok in the viewport.
This is the first time I have used ortho views ( new to plant 3d )
I have always used <3d hidden> with views with the sheet set manager with no issues.
it's a bit upsetting that Ortho views and the SSM are not compatable. ( cannot linked ortho views to the sheet view tab )
Still having some of the geometry missing in hidden styles but visible on wireframe and shaded style plots is strange.
