Why can't I pick this point?

unhandled

#1

I am trying to pick the bottom of a hole for a “point to move from”, it will Osnap to the center but won’t pick it when I LMB.

Cannot pick the center of hole.3dm (5.7 MB)

Hi Don - see if the setting in Options > Modeling aids > ‘Center snap to approximate arcs, circles and ellipses’ makes any difference.

Pascal,

It makes no difference.

Thanks,
Don


#4

See how the two further points away don’t display the Osnap type, not sure if that has anything to do with it or not.


#5

If I am in ghosted mode it works.

Hi Don - it may be the ‘Snap to occluded objects’ setting in the same page as before…

-Pascal


#7

Yes, turning on “Snap to Occluded Objects” allows me to pick that point.

That seems a little buggy.

My $0.02,
Don

Hi Don - without Snap to occluded but a cleaner/more accurate render mesh, does it work more as you expect?

-Pascal


#9

Yes, if render mesh is set to smooth and slower, this works as expected.

Thanks,
Don

Hi Don - OK - that makes sense then - the render mesh does the occluding and if it is chunky like you had it, it will cut across the actual edges of the surfaces in pretty large areas.

I think I reported similar things previously - even with not-so-coarse meshes… Somehow there needs to be a tolerance here or a different system, as it is not at all obvious to the average user what is going on or the remedy…

Whoa! There’s no need for name calling! :wink:


#13

Yeah, sorry, after I posted that I thought it might get misinterpreted… :grimacing:
That was simply a general statement…

But I guess you want someone else to think about it then?
