Drawing Disappeared, need help to recover.

Hi there,


I'm a Graphics teacher and my students have been drawing object for their end of year projects on Inventor 11, one of the boys was drawing and then his work disappeared. It's all still in the side panel so its still there, but the Zoom All tool does nothing and all of the objects visibilty is on as well. Its stumped all of the teachers here and its probably really simple as well, any suggestions?


I've attached the drawing if that helps?

First, this is a model not a drawing...


It appears that there is something radically wrong with sketch 16 at the bottom of the model tree.  Deleting this sketch brought the model back into visibility.  There is a parameter, d92 associated with that sketch which has a very strange value, see attached.



Not sure what the intent was since I can't get the sketch to show up.  however, deleting this sketch seems to repair the model.

model disappeared in assembly

I'm having a similar issue and am wondering if someone can hekp me out.  I used the orbit command and the entire assembly disappeared.  However, when I double clicked on a sub-assembly in the browser, the sub-assembly would appear but when I double clicked the entire assembly in the browser, the entire assembly disappears again.  I checked the model paramters and everything looks OK. Very fustrating.

System specs, sounds more like a hardware issue. Does selecting the home icon bring it back?
