-I have attached a model
-I wanted to extract mesh faces from the mesh inside of the attached model
-Resulting faces did not copy to current layer but inside of a layer which is part of the attached model
The problem is now i cant even detach the model. nothing happens when i detach it.
I tried to attach the same model again. Two were present at the same time but it didnot help.
That is an alternative method of using Worksession. You are using Worksession. After right clicking, selecting the file to attaching and enter you should see in command history something like:
Worksession: Reading file E:\Downloads E\cesta_model.3dm as an inactive model.
An .rws file is only created when a Worksession is saved. Worksession can be started without involving an .rws file.
Worksession command will open a panel listing the active file and other attached files. Select the file to be detached and click on the Detach button to detach it.
Alternative method to detach non-active file. In the layers panel right click on the “layer” with the name of the non-active file to be detached. A menu should appear with “Worksession Reference” as the first line. Move the mouse cursor over “Worksession Reference” and another menu should appear. Click on “Detach” to detach the file.
I think so, normal behaviour would be that all commands running on an attached model should create new objects on current layer in current model. I have worked like that many times before and there was no problem.
I’ve had a similar minor experience. I think the root cause or the issue is that the source layer of the math data you are trying to carry over from the attached file may be the same as a layer name in the active file. I have not had a chance to validate this yet. I’ll send a n update to @pascal if it occurs again in the new subject thread he’s creating.
