Objects are invisible in one of the views


#1

Strange thing here.
One view port somehow stopped showing the model.
trying to set different views makes no difference,
the thing is only affecting this one, [the other viewports are normal]

any ideas?

Looks like a damaged viewport.
If it were me, I’d start a new file using the same settings, then copy/paste the entities into the new file.

Hi John
Copy paste into a new file restored the view port to normal behavior.

just curious, if there’s a reason for this? a small bug of sort?

thanks a lot.

Hi John
it would be very helpful to know the reason for this?
The problem with solving this by copying the geometry to a new file is that I seems to have lost all my History links.
forcing the redo of many surfaces.

Is there a way to do a “copy+Paste into a new file fix” while maintaining the history links?

Hi Akash - do you still have the original (bad) file? Can you send to tech@mcneel.com?

Hi Pacal.
thank you
yes I still have it. but a computer reboot seems to have healed the sick viewport…
wish I thought of it at the time…[ I did do a Rhino restart then, which made no difference]
do you still want to see the file, it’s too large to email ?
