Re: Visibility Issue in Drawing Environment

I know some things loose visibility if they fall out of the margin,  usually happens on refrenced parts,  didn't know it could happen with a pattern.

 

Worth checkin.

 

 

 

Save the assembly as a copy,  and remove all but the pattern.


post the assembly, part, and drawing,  we can figure it from there.

Hmmm...   The pattern has a visibility seperate from each element,  and parts have their own.

 

did yo check all three?  well two anyway.  as we know the root pattern object is visible.

 

 

 

If the assembly is too big to make a copy or if you think the size of the project may be the culprit,   demote the pattern temporarally and try it by itself in its own assembly.

I was really hoping for one of those "Just wait until the wind is blowing out of the East then stand on your head for 30 seconds singing Kumbaya..."

Wait, one last thing to try. Make that view shaded just to see if the part will show.

When you're in the drawing environment only components have visibility settings. Patterns and pattern elements do not. (Yes, I checked anyways)

The pattern is of one lone sub-assembly. I have the sub-assembly detailed on another sheet and it shows up fine there.
