missing (mirrored) 3d symbols in section backgrounds

Question

I think I just found a bug:

I have a section with background view enabled (only visible lines). unfortunately mirrored 3d symbols are not displayed. if I mirror the symbol, the geometry appears. funnily enough, on the 2nd and 3rd floor, which are simply layer viewports of the 1st floor, the symbols are displayed correctly...

 

can anyone confirm?

I could not resolve this problem yet. all vertical same looking elements are the same symbol, I have no idea why they are not all showing when mirrored. has no one else encountered this error?

I made a file illustrating the problem. can someone please confirm and add this bug to the list of things to fix? this is driving me nuts, do I really need to create a mirrored symbol of the same geometry? vectorworks really need to fix their geometry normals issues!!!

Hi P04,

 

Try editing the symbol's Front 2D Component and delete the object within. There does appear to be a bug in displaying the Front 2D component properly, but the geometry you have there for that symbol does not look like it was intended to represent the 3D component.  Simply deleting it should correct the problem.

Hi Matt

 

Thank you so much for that solution! I have no idea how that geometry was added to my 2d view since I never edited them (only the plan view). it's interesting too that the original geometry is displayed correctly while the mirrored geometry is not...

 

Again, thank you!

You're welcome!

 

Yes. There is a bug having to do with the Front 2D Component.  I'm submitting a bug on that now...
