Studio Reflective Gp shows cut reflection

I have a problem with Inventor 11 Studio. The reflection on the ground made by "XZ Reflective Gp" works in a way that when rendered, it shows a partial or cut reflection of my assembly, see attached .jpg file. I have not found yet where this "reflection depth" is regulated. Please help! -Marco

In studio, go to Scene Styles, select your scene, then on the Environment tab, select the Ground Plane direction and offset.

I tried that before, but as you can see in the attached .jpeg file, the problem is not the degree of reflection or the distance of the plane to the base of the object, the problem is the reflection is not shown entirely on the rendering, it is cut across the bottom of it. -Marco

...and this is also happening to the shadow, as you can see. -Marco

Hi Marco,

Could you post the part?

Does this behavior manifest in all renderings or only of this part?

Have you tried rendering using any of the other reflective planes? Do they
clip too?

When you click on the render button, does the plane appear to be full-sized?

How big is the part?

Do your results vary if you zoom out on the part? Can you get "more"
reflection/shadow to render?

It happens only on this part so far, but I only have a couple of days experience with Inventor studio, so I have done about 6 parts so far

Results don't vary when zooming in or out, the plane looks complete before rendering
