Hi!

 

Your issue is to have the views on top of each other?

Or you found some errors in dimensions, etc?

 

All you have to do is arrange again the views position...

Seems the updated version has a workplane (or some surface) visible and it's outer edges are making all the views shift.
Can you try turning that off and see if everything falls back in place?

Please set your your Inventor Graphics to use Software Graphics and Compatibility Mode.

Tools tab -> Inventor Applications Options -> Hardware tab

 

Please try this and let us know if it makes a difference.

 

Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving.

Hi

 

-Niels- has it.

 

For future, create a design view rep in the assembly/part. That has the surfaces visibility turned off.

I find that sometimes I don't have to do anything, just create the view rep, I have found that the default view rep can become a little indecisive at times when it comes to showing/hiding surfaces. This in turn throws all the views out and creates chaos, but turn it off again, and it all pops back into place.

 

Naturaly, set the drawing view to the new view rep.

Thanx to all for the input!

 

I have turned off all planes in model and there was no effect on drawing views. The planes show on drawing view but not in model space.

Any reason for that? It seems that these planes are causing my problem but how do I fix this?

 

Thanx again!

Hi

 

Just double check, I am not aware of workplanes causing such disruption, they normally show up as lines, surfaces useually display such behaviour.

 

Did you create A design view rep, turning off the visibility of the Work planes and surfaces?

 

After doing that, change the drawing view to reflect the new design view rep.

 

If it still does not update, check to see if the "Associative" checkbox is active.

If none of the above work, then we have to look deeper into the issue.

There is the manual way of doing it.

switch off the associative option

Find the offending workplane/surface in the Model tree.

RMB switch off "visibility"
