Bridle autoconnect mode has not found suitable connection points

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know why the autoconnect doesnt work here?

I also cant connect manually in 2d, I need to go 3d to get it to work.


Eveything is on the same layer. Other layers are imported ifcs.

I created my own structural member since i cound not convert the existing ones.

But I need to have the layer, where the structural members is, active for it to work.

This is normal. VW is not supposed to interact with inactive layers. 
When I'm working with specific items from a crowded layer that I need to interact with, I'll move them to my current layer, do my work, and then move them back.

By active i mean selected. All layers are visible. But this is only the case in this project.

If i start a new document i can create the structural members on one layer and my bridles on my rigging layer the bridle tool works perfectly.


Could it have something to do with layer elevations?
