3D Label Legends not displaying in Clip Cube Viewport - VW2019

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I've just moved over to VW2019 SP2.  I'm having a problem with 3D label legends displaying in Viewports which are made from a Clip Cube.  If I make a front elevation Viewport on a sheet layer without the clip cube, the label legends display fine.  If I use the clip cube to make the viewport, then they disappear.   

 

File attached.  Any input most welcome!  Thanks.

It appears that any text in a clipcube viewport will not display with Hidden Line or Dashed Hidden Line. Other render modes seem to work fine. WiIl you file it as a bug?

Hi Mark,

 

Thanks for the quick reply.  Good to know I'm not going mad!  Will file as a bug.

Hi Charlie,

 

Thanks for having a look at this.

 

Yes it's a section viewport made from a clip cube where the issue is showing up.  

The file you uploaded displays the 3D legends ok, but it's not a section viewport from the clip cube.  I'm trying to use a section viewport to isolate a small part of my drawing.

 

Did VW support offer you any explanations/fixes or workarounds?

 

Interestingly, if I export a PDF of the sheet layer with a section viewport, the 3D Label Legends shows up.  It's just on the screen where it's not visible.

 

All the best,

Hey Cookie

 

Have you had a reply from VSS on this known clip cube bug?

Hi LX1,

 

No not as of yet.  The last message from VSS was nearly a week ago.  I've just chased them up again.  

 

I presume you can replicate this fault as well?

 

Cheers,

Hey

 

I can confirm that this has been a problem in 2019 SP1 and SP2.

 

Maybe it is just me but I use clip cube for creating viewports all the time and seeing 3D label legends and dims is essential.

Likewise, since it's introduction 'section viewport from clip cube' has been indispensable for me. 

 

I haven't actually seen confirmation from Vectorworks that they recognise this as a bug yet.  In the test file I sent VSS they deleted the section viewport from the clip cube, replaced it with a standard viewport (in elevation) and told me it was fixed...

So far I'm not having any problems with 2019 2P2. Make absolutely certain that all the relevant Label Classes are visible in your viewports though....

No problem. It is worth saying that this is made with a brand new label legend in SP2 for this test

Hi Mark,

 

Thanks for sending that over (So promptly!)

 

The issue I'm having is with section viewports made from clip cubes:  (Your file has standard viewports in it, not section viewports).

When I make section viewports made from clip cubes the 3D legend does not display in hidden line, but does in other render modes:

File attached.  Have a look if you have time and let me know what you think.

Ha. How right you are. Sorry, I didn't read all of the thread properly. For now, you could play around with the lighting in OpenGL and set it to 10,000 to effectively get a white-out and the use Foreground Hidden Line which does seem to work..... For that to work, you will need to set your lighting fixture textures to non-black.

Will you submit this as a bug?

Thanks Mark

 

That is a good workaround for now!

Hi Mark,

 

No worries. VSS had exactly the same response as you at first. I’ve been in a very slow email exchange with them over this issue. (Two weeks so far...) I’ve yet to get an acceptance from them that this is a bug. It’s very helpful to know others are seeing the same behaviour. 

 

Interesting workaound. Thanks for that. I’ll give it a whirl!

 

cheers,
