One of the issues we struggle with is detail layer visibility, which has made it impossible to adopt Rhino as our primary CAD system. When you have 20 layouts with 60 details, managing layer visibility in details becomes almost impossible. A simple layer visibility change in model space can affect visibility in lots of details. Saving layer states is buggy so that’s not a viable solution. A solution to this would be a RhinoScript that looks at all details’ layer visibility settings, then sets model space layer visibility such that each layer that is visible in any detail is visible in model space (and if not visible in any detail it is off in model space). Before I jump in and try to create a script, I’m hoping someone has already written one. Has anyone done this?
Of course the best solution would be the ability to ignore model space layer visibility in details, but as far as I know that option has yet to appear.
