I have an assembly file I made in Inventor 2011 that I published to DWF. When I view it in Design Review 2013 not all the parts are visible. If I zoom in on the area that they are suppose to be, they magically appear, but can't get a good view of the whole assembly that way. This trick doesn't work for all missing parts. I have tried to hide/unhide the missing parts, but that does nothing. Any Help?
I would like to share this with my customer, but I need it to work on my machine first.
i have seen this happen on my own workstation at times especially after spinning the dwf around and zooming in and out a few times, when i have set dwf/ design review in perspective view mode.
i suspect it is probably more of a video / graphics issue.
if you have it set to perspective try setting back to normal & also probably i would try it on different workstation, updating graphics drivers etc. for comparison.
Thanks Mark. I tried changing to perspective view and back couple times with no change. As for the video card, I don't have an issue inside Inventor and how can I guarantee my customer will have the correct video card. Just doesn't make sense to have a free viewer for everyone to use if everyone has to upgrade their video card to use it
I tried a couple other Assemblies and they seem to work, their not quite as big either.
just as a test, try dragging the file into internet explorer for comparison.
and see if it performs any differently.
Dragging the file to IE doesn't change anything.
This morning I have made some changes to a few of the parts in the assembly. I just tried exporting to DWF again and a few more parts disappeared. I went back into Inventor adjusted the current view and re-exported. Now I can see all but one part in Design Reviewer.
Now after playing with opening that missing part and re-saving, changing current view, changing publish options, closing and reopening Inventor... I have more missing parts than my original.
Just noticed that if I export file to 3D pdf using tetra4D add-in, the same problem shows up. Smaller assemblies export fine in both DWF and 3D pdf. Must be Inventor problem, not DWf viewer issue
