Failed subtractions

Recommended Posts

I keep getting failed subtraction in my 3D drawings. I don't think it's a ram issue because the files a typically 500k or less.

I detail custom cabinetry and my drawings are very detailed with all of the parts drawn in 3D. It doesn't always happen in all files, but when it does, it's very time consuming to redraw. Also all of my parts are tied to records so of course I need to re-key all this info also. If anyone has an idea as to whats going on, please let me know. Thanks

P.S. System is AMD anthlon 650 w/128 megs

Vectorworks 8.5.2

Failed solids can be edited via the edit group command. Sometimes editing and exiting will cure the problem, and sometimes it will reveal what is the problem (you've hidden the classes of all of the components, for example.)
