idw folded model

283 Views, 4 Replies

I was creating an idw, which I have done for years and I am not sure if I clicked on something, my model and dimensions have dissapeared and I am left with a blank blue screen. If I look at the "browser bar" it shows that the part has been folded? Is there a way to undo this?

Thanks for the help. Not sure how I did that.

I can't tell from your post what is happening-- can you post the files or at least a screen shot?  References to idw and dimensions suggest that you're working in a drawing, but references to model and blank blue screen and folded part suggest a sheet metal part.  So, I'm confused, which is a common occurrence.

I am attaching a screen shot, you can see the screen is blue and the idw is not visible. It says the part is folded?

OK, it looks as if your drawing sheet is panned/zoomed out of the graphics area.  Can you get it back by using the Zoom All tool?  

 

As for the part shown as folded, that's normal.  You have the choice when you place the view of a sheet metal part whether you want the folded or unfolded view.  In this case you chose the folded view.
