Re: Problems with the 2D view in the drawing

top solid will always orientate parts in a multidraft according to its axis. since you place more than 1 part i assume it just pics an axis since your assembly does not have one. try selecting add to sawing up in the characteristics of your assembly and then adding x an y directions in a manner that...

Re: driver coating and finishing

i'm sorry what i said was not quite correct. yes you can make a text driving but it's not possible to make it control the material. i'll explain how to make a text driver though, who knows it might come in handy. place a text via tools-text-type something easy to recognize like finish or something. ...

Re: Best practices

Re: Undo planning view

you can make a new view and have all the sections transfer to that if you want, that way the rest of your sections wont break. i agree the function is cool, we use it to make our ceiling plans. But apart from what i said earlier i don't see a way to undo it.

Re: Undo planning view

yeah it kept the 3d plane with me as well. but i am wondering why you want this, should you have any indexes or dimensions in your planning view they are sure to break if you would succeed in turning it back to normal. is deleting and replacing it with a new view an option?

Re: Undo planning view

Use the modify element function and click on your view, the view modification window will open. Under "camera" you can select the view you want. I'm guessing yours will be on top view, unfold the pull-down menu where you can select the view and click top again. Then click OK. I just tested this and ...

Re: Best practices

hi quazoosl, For me there are a few "rules" for TSW modeling: -try to keep the number of operations on every part as low as possible. For example, don't extend a constraint block but rather alter the shift on a side. This gives you a model that is less likely to cause errors or long loading time. -w...

Re: Change the default index style?

i think you can change it in the topzdft.cfg as the colour fond and text height are also determined there. however, what code you should use to get a balloon is beyond me
