EAP Section Weirdness

Recommended Posts

Can someone tell be why these two different EAPs show up differently in section? The EAP profiles are all similar types of objects yet some get hatched and some don't.

Part of the issue seems to be caused by objects that cross the x axis zero point within the profile. Removing that one object helps but doesn't fix things entirely.

My current project has quite a few EAPs and this is one of a few issues I'm trying to solve. Any insight would be appreciated.

On the "unhatched" profile, if I "Add Surface" the two profile objects - the rectangle and the sculpted shape, all is well...

Thanks Wes. That's a good workaround but I would prefer to keep the profiles separate if possible. I would also love to understand why this particular geometry is different.

Perhaps this is a bug then? Since clearly multiple shapes are possible?.

How 'bout this...if you zoom way in, the profiled section is separated from the main square shape whereas the shapes, etc. on the left are all touching and therefore are homogenous...is that the right word???

And then if I move the sculpted object out, I get this...seems there's something going on with the multiple profile objects and EAP...

Yup. Its definitely a bug. Two objects can't touch as far as I can tell. As soon as they do one of them won't hatch correctly in section.

The objects on the left in my original image actually have the same problem, they're just too small for it to show and I didn't notice.
