Hello - so… if I understand, fills do not show as solid with the clipping plane - I can’t remember 6 months ago at all, but is it always, sometimes? Any object? If it’s not any object, please post a file that has an object that shows the problem. There are a few clipping-plane-fill-related bugs on the heap as it is, I can’t tell if this is a separate one…
Here’s a thread on this topic which goes back 4 years and includes quite current posts .
I have accepted that clipped fills will not work on my system at the moment (I draw them in layout space with a hatch), and it appears that there are others for whom they never have. Sometimes they display in a project (usually not in perspective) but they never print. This is unfortunate because they’re a crucial tool in displaying cross sections in drawings, especially the complex ones which Rhino offers unprecedently refined tools to create.
I believe that fills will appear and can be reliably captured in/from Model Views directly, But not as part of a layout.
Pascal, what do you say? I notice on of the posts on the other thread I link to has “Section Tools” listed on his system report (in a post) yet he’s reporting it doesn’t work for him. Can you confirm Alan’s recommendation?
At least it seems to be consistently printing in the correct color, which is a huge improvement.
What I’m after in the above print is a solid green fill on the architectural shapes, which are set to render in section as a solid fill.
I welcome any workarounds for these problems:
The result contains unwanted shadows which display with one set of anomalies and print with another. (Items A, B, and D.)
The human figure objects in the rendering are set not to have a solid fill. They display without them but print with them
Part of a furniture object displays unclipped and prints clipped…
In my personal experience the clipping plane fill will not work when you are trying to clip an object that is not a closed poly-surface of brep. If its a complicated poly surface try checking your edges and fixing any micro edge loops
