WTF?!? body gone? but I can see it. all color codes lost

Not sure what you guys changed, but now my body is missing from the design tree and all the color codes are missing, however I can still see my model. CAM is angry because the body that was assigned to the setup is now missing? Opening any previous saved versions nets zero change. 

 

WTF?

Welcome To (the) Forum 🙂

Can you share the file?

Well, Like most of my work, I have an NDA and am not supposed to be sharing these things. I am going to put money on the latest update buggered this thing all up. 

 

Here it is. When you export and then import, you get a body back, but the rest of the work is still lost. 

 

I have over 70+ additional models similar to this i need to manipulate, so I really hope it doesn't trash those too.

When I opened your file, it was in "Base Feature" modification:

Was this intentional, or is it possible that this was accidentally saved in this state? If you don't exit Base Feature modification and go back to Manufacture, this is what we're greeted with (even after regeneration):

However, finishing the Base Feature edit and going to MFG will give you this:

Why? Well, I'm not 100% sure, but I suspect it's that it's now a different model as far as Fusion is concerned.

Seth, 

I don't think I have ever been in this "base feature edit" mode before? I am not sure how that would effect previous saved work? If I even go back and open the 1st save from when I imported the step file. 

 

Do you know how I may be able to get my color coded surfaced back etc?

I'm not seeing anything in the model about color coding the surfaces, sorry. I don't think those are retrievable..

Was this a customer supplied step file with color coding attached to it? Could you share that STEP?

Seth, 

Here is the original file. 

I had to remove the modeled jig-jacks and FCS work holding.

Well, I don't think there's going to be a way to bring that model in (with the coloring) AND retain your toolpaths..

 

Fortunately, it's a short task to apply colors to your model, sucks as it is though....

That model is fairly simple. There are others in this package that have quite a lot of detail and color variation. 

 

I am not so much concerned with loosing the tool paths. I am more concerned I have 70+ more I need to modify, where I don't want to loose that information.

And you're certain that all are missing this info? Do they all present in the same manner? (Base Feature being edited when you don't even know how to do that)

Seth, 

I went to modified as well as added some tool paths to another model, saved, exit, reopen and I did not have this problem again. 

 

Perhaps I got into the base feature edit mode on accident? other? I am not sure.

That's my suspicion. When you have time, check out your other files and see if they are all in good shape
