Section View Destroyed?

37 Views, 7 Replies
10-31-2002 10:01 PM
Using, I6, I notice that most of the IDW's that I create eventually, if not immediatley, have the section views fall apart. By this, I mean the solid edge lines disappear, the red perimeter to highlight the view is gone.I am left with a few dimensions and a crosshatch. Is there a way around this? Do I have to wait for the patch? I created these IPTs in I6. I need to get these parts to a machine shop now, not on the 15th!
Help Please

Can you post a sample part and idw file to Customer
files so others can see if they see the same thing?

 

Was your idw template migrated from 5.3? 


style="PADDING-RIGHT: 0px; PADDING-LEFT: 5px; MARGIN-LEFT: 5px; BORDER-LEFT: #000000 2px solid; MARGIN-RIGHT: 0px">

Stretch your section line to make the view recalculate. Then stretch it
back.

Yes, I am migrating the template from 5.3. Give me a path or directions to where you want me to upload.

Bill,

What Cory is suggesting causes the view to update. Another way to
accomplish this without editing the view is to select the view and click on
the Update button on the toolbar. This causes the section views to update
correctly in my tests of your data. Or, if you do a Tools/Rebuild All in
the part file, the section view will update as well.
