3D PDF

Unread post by RaudMees »

Hello

When I am creating 3D PDF, then centre point is somewhere far away. When I do something in PDF, then project fly around and very hard to centre it. Its version 6.20 and 6.21 issue. In 6.17 worked fine. Any ideas?

Strange... same project ( same settings (layer - visibility), different result?
Try to save as a xt file and compare to see if it's a transformation issue maybe ( just to check )

with camera properties you have the option to choose select model within the 3D PDF. that allows you to select a part of your model to function as center of rotation.

Both tricks worked. Over x_t and playing with camera in PDF Reader. For me it looks like saving point is not based by current. Tried with several cases, no result. When I do simple detail from sketch - working; driver block and some elements - working; full unit with connectors, doors, hinges - out of space.

it looks like a component keep a source element ( invisible for you) far away from your "visible" projet so the export PDF consider it.
the only solution is to send the projet to support to identify the problem.
Do you have any invalid élément?
is your project close to the absolute CS ? an invalid element could store it at the 0 point and if you project is 4 meter away from the 0 point your zoom will be wrong for you.

There is no invalid elements. All good with them. Also all components are created top of ACS to my own CS. I will do that hard work and after adding new component creating 3D PDF and I hope I have some luck.

Any chance to simplify the project keeping this bad boy and export the project ( and provide it to me) I will handle the rest.
Thanks
