VW 2017: Objects Become Invisible When File Opens

Recommended Posts

Hi Gang,


I am having this issue in my 3D model where walls will become invisible when I open my file. I have all classes turned on, in view I have classes set to show/ snap/ modify others. I can hover over the walls and they glow so I can select them. I then have to go through and select each individual wall and change them to solid. It is a real nuisance. Any thoughts as to why that would occur? Also, it becomes problematic select all as I have visible walls with a fill meaning if I select all  everything is solid even objects with texture fill.

Hmmm, I am not sure I am permitted to share the file as it belongs to my employer. Not sure how to strip it back that I am not violating any company policy.

Well, I think it was a class thing. Once I changed the classes of the walls it stopped doing it. Thanks for the help!
