strange cross section added when rendering

Recommended Posts

As you can see from my attachment, squares appear in my rendering through my table legs. Anyone have an idea why this would be?

It is interesting, both the fact that they are rendering this way and their location within the drawing. Are you sure you haven't left a square used for crating the top of your legs on the ground plane and it's rendering this? Does it appear in another rendering mode? Hidden Line perhaps?

If you post the file either here or through PM I'm sure someone here can assist, at the very least re-render and see what's going on.

Are your legs created as hybrid symbols?

If so chances are your 2d element has been converted to a planar graphic living on the Layer Plane (Symbol Definition Plane) within the symbol.

Edit the 3d component of the symbol

Select the Planar Graphic

Change from Layer Plane to Screen Plane in the OIP

View in Top/Plan view to confirm the relative position of both.
