What am I doing wrong, I double click the detail perspective, turn off dims layer and dims vanish in ALL the 4 viewports.
I try again this time with the persp detail view not active and dims vanish in all 4 viewports.
So how do I turn off a layer in just one viewport and not affect the visibility of that item in the 3 others others ?
You say I have been told this already, so I will peruse all my threads again and see how its done, but what was wrong with my method above ? Do tell me here.
update… I have looked through all posts on layout I made this last week and nothing has been said on how to turn off a layer for just one pane. I was told I could delete the geometry in perspective detail pane, but that didnt work, it vanished in all panes.
make2D is no use to me, I need my plans in shaded mode, Make2D is lines, its buggy, I used it many yrs ago and dropped it like a hot potato, . the results are scattered about, I have to bring them all together, I had to edit out bits, add in bits, no way no use at all for this job. I have something like 20 separate components to plan up, . Layout view is the best approach BUT i cannot control visibility in the separate panes and when manually aligning the panes, unless I find out how to auto do so, I keep messing up the scales, iI wish it auto aligned.
What I am doing with this is exactly what it needs, the graphical way it will be submitted as a set of plans totally understandable at first glance, for folk who need such, not a set of spidery lines which would involve the user having to have knowledge of how to read engineering drawings, line only plans would make this hardwork or not followable. All the components and sub components are all different colours so as to make 100% easy for seeing all the details easily and make it understandable.
It is not the subject matter that folk here ever deal with.
I cannot say what this is but its not for an engineer, its not for CNC, it wont enter a factory, Its exactly what is needed for the recipients to recreate the item, using their own workshops, plywood, steel, items purchasable, sewing machine needed, material, straps, all sorts of skills needed and will be made by a team where pennies count, to go on display to the public. No shop floor guys, no processes you envisage. I have done so before and its highly praised and totally followable, it works 100%, followable by the lowest brain set.
Its not a CNC thing, miles away from that sort of thing, would cost thousands if it were given to a factory., maybe the brackets in it could be but the cost would be prohibitive. I might get some bits that form 2% of it and another that is a complex component that would make life easy also 3D printed for them.
If I was to show this here I would lose control over the marketing, its copyright and all too often ones project appears elsewhere and control is lost.
The world is so darned sensitive I would propably cause myself grief by showing a photo of this on the net.
I know exactly what I am doing, my client base for this and what they need. I have discussed it with them and its to be in the same manner as other work I have done which is exactly what is needed and 100% understandable when looked at.
