CAN'T ADD SOLIDS

Recommended Posts

What happens if you run the Add Solids command a second time after clicking OK to the warning? Normally VW will deselect the offending objects and allow you to add those that remain selected. From there you can see what VW didn't add in and figure out why.

Than it won't work either! I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. For school I just needed to place my extruded floors on each other and than needed to add solids and than add a cube around it so we could trim them at a height of 1m50. Like this:

Make sure that all of the objects are solids, no lines or images (I can't tell from the screenshot what object types you're adding) and you can also try just selecting two items at a time that overlap in 3D and adding them individually. You can also post your file and I can take a look.

Is it possible to send a copy so you can take a look maybe?


yep, you can post it here as an attachment or message it to me directly.

The objects have no fill. I broke apart the groups and found that many of the objects inside had a fill of None in the attributes palette. Setting the fill to solid allowed me to add the shapes together as expected.

I'd be curious about this message too. I'm used to the fingerprinting/watermark message but I've never seen this one before. I understand why the copy protection exists between the student and professional versions but to not be able to even open and view the file is new to me. I often get asked to help people problem solve files (colleagues, students, instructors with student files).
