Hi,

Have been using auto hybrid tool for some joinery items recently (reception desks etc.). Brilliant tool for generating elevations, worth alook if you're not using it BUT, when I go to EDIT the hybrid, the graphic of the model geometry diappears from the screen. It is still there if you hover mouse over it, but not able to edit it. It also disappears in the sheet viewports. Anyone else had this issue/ know of a possible cuase or even better remedy?!

 

I'm up to date on VW2018/ SP3 and new pc/ graphics card (this issue was there in VW2017 also I seem to recall).

 

Thanks in advance!

Mark, I'm having the same problem with Auto Hybrids just as you've described.

The 3D geometry disappears and become corrupted after I try to edit them.

I'm also running 2018/SP3 and haven't found a solution yet apart from avoiding creating new hybrids...

Thanks for response. Good to hear it's not just me!

My work-round is to copy the 3d object onto a new design layer, but really not ideal as you end up having to re-generate sheet layer viewports when you delete the auto hybrid, but really not ideal; not an efficient workflow!

 

Be good to get a Vectorworks view on this!

Rather frustrating to see this was an issue over 2 years ago?! Makes you wonder if these tools are tested by real users before they are integrated into new release software?

Best practice is to ungroup the auto hybrid before editing.  Then remake the auto hybrid.  Just be sure to make your AH settings for that particular piece the default before ungrouping.

Thanks Grant, tried it and seems to work.

 

For VW consideration:

It would be much more intuitive if the edit tool worked (if it doesn't work to edit auto hybrid, why is it there?)
