We have created reinforcement for any structural element (i.e. slab, column, etc) and linked it inito another file. Here we can't see the reinforcement bar in solid form and also we can't change the view visibility graphics in 3D view for the reinforcement model.We have attached a screenshot for reference.
Hi. Please check the visibility settings of the linked model. If it is set to By Linked View, then you need to make the modification in the linked view and reload, otherwise, simply set it to By Host View. In the end you could always use custom settings for the link.
If this solves your problem, Please Accept As Solution.
Hi. A couple of comments.
1- When you set the visibility state of the linked model to by host view or by linked view, then you need to make the changes in the visibility graphics dialog of the host model or the linked model. When you set it to custom, then you can choose to do any of the options by either linked or by host. (there are other options as well for certian tools).
2- You cannot edit the visibility states of anything linked directly from the properties palette. (Also applies to elements in your model if they already have a view template applied).
Other than that, I can't seem to see what might cause the problem (other than that the linked model is also divided into worksets)
If you have it set to by host view, then it should look 3D solid.
Thanks for your feedback. Can you please tell us the procedure to see the solid view for the reinforcement of the linked file.
Steps to follow: (for your reference)
Is there any option to resolve this issue.
Hi. Please follow this procedure.
1- Create file A.
2- Create file B.
3- If the slab hosting the reinfocement is in a workset then you need to make sure you specify the correct visibility settings for the workset itself. See 4.
3- Link file B into file A.
4- Set the visibility of linked file B to by Host. If there are worksets, set visibility to custom and set the visibility of the workset to by host.
If this doesn't work, then let me know and I would recreate what you have on two files to see what might be causing your problem. It would be better if you could attach your files for someone to check.
Hope this helps.
If u have a web based harddisk (such as dropbox), you could place them there and share the link.
