The model disappears when rotating

Postby ariane4 » Thu Nov 11, 2010 9:02 am

The thing is that when I use the rotate tool, or zoom in the model, the lines start to be cut weirdly and the model disappears more and more. So i can't get a close view or walk through my model properly, and I have to zoom out again to see it fully. Is there a way to fix it ?
Thanks for your answers

Hi Ariane,

I think you mean Orbit tool, not Rotate but anyway it sounds to be the clipping issue with SU. Check out the ideas under the link and see if any is relevant for your model (especially if you have imported CAD stuff)

Cool! I deleted the imported file and the problem is almost solved : The model still disapprears when I look at it to some angles, but I can zoom in closer so its much better
Thanks Gaieus

Imported files can also be "fixed" - there's just a couple of things to take care:
  • when importing, check out the import options and make sure NOT to preserve drawing origin.
  • While there, make sure to import with the correct scales
  • finally if the imported group has its origin somewhere etremely out - it can happen if there is some reference geometry there in the original CAD file - delete that geometry, explode the group and while everything is selected, regroup again.
Always a good way to use Zoom extents (Shift+Z) to see how "large" your model is. If you seem to zoom out too far away, there is some problematic geometry somewhere. Press Ctrl+A to select all and see what is highlighted blue (beside your model) to identify the culprit.
