Another problem I’m struggling with (opening an old project from 2016/R5) is that although I have removed Edge Softening in all individual model files, Rhino still tries to soften edges when opening the Worksession holding these files (and many radii are too big, and it’s slow and… so on).
And the problem is the following:
- The Edge Softening setting is not actually cleared in the files (despite me clearing it)
- Or, the warning text is not reporting the file name in which the softening radius is “too big” (so I’m trying to correct the wrong file)
- Or, the Worksession keeps a cache of settings which is not correctly updating this setting when the individual files are modified.
Example: I just cleaned up all Edge Softenings in the following file, and then updated the Worksession file, but the softeing is still active… :
The individual original files are from R5, perhaps R6 simply doesn’t recognize the correct property (Edge Softening) so as to be able to clear it?
All the (attempted to remove) Edge Softenings takes forever although there should be none left in the entire project. Puzzling.
This type of “clearing old properties” problem happens to Blocks as well (Sometimes impossible to remove layers holding a Block definition which is not visible in the Block Manager. Workaround : Export Everything else in the model, expect for the haunted layer(s) into a new file.)
Lotsa clean up still undone in R6… But we are slowly getting there.
