Hi. Way back when I was first getting started with VW (last year), I setup a shortcut for clipcube (control+shift+C), because I like to use it quite often. However, I did not realize that there was something wrong with the behavior until recently when a colleague explained the way that it is supposed to work. Normal behavior: When you select an object and choose the Clipcube command from either the view menu or the toolbar button, a new clipcube is generated around the object that is selected. Abnormal behavior: When I activate a clipcube using my shortcut, it ignores any selected objects and simply toggles on the last known clipcube location. If there was no existing clipcube in the current view, the new clipcube that is generated is always very small relative the objects in the design layer, and it is located at the internal origin. This is highly frustrating when I'm working on large models and am far from the internal origin. Not sure what exactly triggers the change in view, yet, because it seems to do it all the time. Maybe it's whenever I change the current visibilities? Anyway, I now know that if I use the menu command, the clipcube generates where I expect, so this is not an urgent problem, but if anyone has any insight into why this is happening and how it might be fixed (hopefully in the next patch?), I would be very grateful!
Hello Everyone, I may have changed some setting for renderworks camera or something else happened but now all the orthogonal views in one of my files appear to have a cutting plane that does show the whole model. It may be a tiny bit of setting but its really annoying. Please guide anyone who has the same experience. See attached a screenshot. Thanks
I am using the clip cube to focus on one section of roofing that needs to be discussed and I want to export it to 3D. However, if I try to export to 3D pdf or to web view the whole model gets exported which makes them useless. I tried the trick of creating a Section VP of the clip cube and putting it on a separate design layer and then exported but still, the same thing happens, the whole model gets exported. The only other option I can think off is to copy the file and delete all the extra information around the point of interest. Is it too much to ask that the clip cube view can be used by the export 3D pdf and export web view?
