I'm having a problem with the Update CAD Geometry option in Impresion 3. I've used this without fail previously but now if I change my CAD drawing and go to update the geometry, the option to update (all 3 options) are greyed ouit. Has anyone come across this before or know why this would happen?

I have had this happen twice. Once when I had a blank impression file open and thought I was in the one I wanted. The other is when there was a problem with my impression file. Unfortunately I never found a fix for it. I had to start a new one and re-render it. I could however after that update the geometry with no problems, well aside the problems that feature has but I was able to do it.


Have you tried starting a new impressions file and importing the cad file into it and then seeing if you get the same result?
