AutoCad :: Hidden Lines Won't Stay Hidden When Plotting

Aug 3, 2011

I'm drawing objects (walls, platforms, etc.) in 3d made up primarily of extruded polygons. I want to be able to plot these objects in a way that hides all of the lines which are obscured by other objects. Currently I have my viewports set up with a 2D Wireframe visual style and a Hidden shade plot. This isn't working for me. I'm still getting all of the lines in the drawing visible no matter what.

Here's the strange thing: It seems to work perfectly fine in plan view, but not in front view. Also, it's worked fine in the past. It seems that the problem has gotten progressively worse over the past year or so.

I'm using AutoCAD 2008.

AutoCad :: Plotting Hidden Lines

Jun 14, 2011

I'm opening a drawing created in AutoCAD 2008, which is plotting hidden arcs as solid lines. Straight hidden lines are dashed as normal. I've attached both the paperspace view and the plot preview to show what I mean. The outer radius is showing as dashed in paperspace view, but appears as a solid line when plotted. The straight line leading to it is dashed in both views.

Feb 10, 2012

I'm laying out a drawing. I use a visual style with facet edges and occluded edges dashed and intersection edges dashed. To give my lines hidden fo fabricators to know witch way to face angle iron and so on. But here is the big problem i do a veiw port with 4 shots 1 isometric solid 1 top hidden lines front hidden lines and right hidden lines. so first time i plot it, it will work fine then i go back to plot then the lines ither become not shown at all or they will be solid. even know the veiwport still shows them as hidden lines. If I delete the veiwport and make a new veiport all over again it will work for a single print then will not show it all over again.

AutoCad :: Hidden Visual Style

Oct 25, 2011

I use the hidden visual style when I plot my MEP drawings and I keep having this issues (sometimes it's worse than others) of piping that is on a layer that is off/frozen still blocking a visible line.

It looks like there are wipeout's going over my pipes when in fact it is a pipe not shown.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Visual Style Hidden Line Scale?

Sep 13, 2013

I'm trying to plot 3D objects with hidden lines.  I've set the viewport SHADE PLOT property to "Legacy hidden" and set my visual style to 2D Wireframe with 2D Hide-Occluded Lines linetype set to "Dashed".  The hidden lines do appear, but I don't like the size and spacing of the dashes.  Is there a way to add "Hidden" linetype to the selected visual style?  Or perhaps there's a way of adjusting the linetype scale for visual style occluded lines (similar to LTSCALE or PSLTSCALE command)?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Change Visual Style From 2D Wireframe To 3D Hidden Nothing Is Changing

Apr 13, 2012

In my model i need to display in 3D. When i change the visual style from 2D Wireframe to 3D Hidden nothing is changing.

Its not a problem with the software as if i draw a cube in the model this changes but my model still does not.

Also the model is imported from Tekla Structures in the same way as the 20 a week and this is the only one which i have had problems with.

AutoCad :: Monochrome Plot Style And Plotting To PDF

Aug 9, 2011

I am using the monochrome plot style and plotting to PDF. My text looks great in the Plot Preview, but once actually hit 'Plot' the line weight of my text and dimensions appears super thick and heavy. They are also assigned to the lightest line weight in the layer property manager.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Plotting To Pdf With Shadows And No Face Style

Jun 19, 2013

I am creating a 3D model and have my selected view within a viewport on layout space.

My prefered visual style for the model is with no face style (i.e only isolines visible) with full shadows on. This looks perfect on layout space.

When plotting to pdf - it looks nothing like as shown despite setting the viewport shade style to as displayed or the selected visual style and the shadows don;t show.

As the pdf option is not providing the desired output. Is there something I am doing wrong or is there a way to render the model whilst showing no face style/material?

AutoCad :: Plotting Edit Plot Style In Layers?

Aug 1, 2011

I'm trying to revise my template that I use as a base for all drawings. I would like to have layer colors in models space, and alter the plot style for the individual layers. For example, My ctb is grayscale, and generally the prints work fine. However, I'd like to set individual layers to display as the layer color yet print black. Othere I'd like to display in colour but print in the grays of the grayscale. However, in the layer manager the plot style is grayed out and I can't change it.

AutoCAD LT :: Plotting Line Weight Defined By CTB Plot Style

Feb 27, 2008

I'm trying to plot a line weight defined by a CTB Plot Style, but the weight will not show in AutoCAD or print.

Here's what I've done;

-Set the line weight in the Plot Style Table Editor, Color 9 @ 0.40mm. Grayscale has been turned on.(All other settings have been left as default)
-Tried various combos like;
-selecting "Display plot styles" & "Plot with Plot Styles" in pg setup
-selecting the "Plot object lineweights". (It also turns off "plot with plot styles" and prints in color (though grayscale is on)
-LWDISPLAY has bee turned on
-Neither model or paper space reflects the change.
-Line types work fine
-Changing the same line thru the Properties Manager does the trick, but I would like to set it up properly thru the Plot Style

Back Ground Info;
-Both the dwg file and Plot Style are new and created from scratch.

If it was a printer issue, it would still show in AutoCAD correctly, right? I've searched various help tools, but seem to be going in circles.

AutoCad :: Plotting In Conceptual Visual Style - Poor Quality

Nov 6, 2013

I have tried this on 2 different machines which are running AutoCAD 2012 & 2014.

The 1st image below was taken from the print preview and shows a Conceptual & Hidden view. Why they come out blocky?

The 2nd image was taken from a screen shot which looks ok.

The 3rd image shows my print settings which created the print preview.

I have tried reducing the quality in the shaded viewport options section but it doesn’t really work.

3ds Max :: Hidden Line Style Doesn't Display Texture Maps In Viewport

Apr 9, 2011

It appears various people are posting things that are posted in the Readme. For Nitrous these are:

• To prevent issues with Nitrous, ensure you have the most up‐to‐date system drivers. For specific details, see the sections about 3ds Max 2012 / 3ds Max Design 2012 found at URL....
• Applying Unwrap UVW after painting in 2D with Viewport Canvas and painting on top of the Unwrap UVW can sometimes cause 2D paint to fail.
Workaround: If this occurs, apply an Edit Poly modifier on top of the Unwrap UVW modifier.
• Civil View parameters can cause a program error when modifying surface parameters.
• Object Color display will show the object’s material color when set to object color.
Workaround: Enable Use Environment Background and Display Background in the Viewport Background settings (Alt+B).
• Locking the computer can cause the viewports to stop responding in some cases.
Workaround: If this occurs, restart the program.
• Mirrored or negatively scaled objects might display face edges incorrectly.
• The Soft selection Shade Face Toggle does not always properly display the shaded faces.
• MassFX constraints can cause Dummy objects not to display in Realistic mode.
• Body Objects display tessellated/triangulated edges instead of the proper Body curves.
• Back faces display as transparent.
• Hidden Line style does not display texture maps in the viewport.
• Tone Mapper used with a Skylight set to use the mr Physical Sky environment will display a black background when enabled.
• Enable Gamma/LUT Correction does not work on stylized viewports.
• Very large textures (10K x 10K) can cause a program error. Workaround: You can control texture sizes with MAXScript:
NitrousGraphicsManager.SetTextureSizeLimit 512 true
NitrousGraphicsManager.SetBackgroundTextureSizeLimit 1024 true

Or by modifying the following keys in 3dsmax.ini:


You need to restart 3ds Max after making these changes.-Eric

AutoCad :: Dimensions In Drawing Cause Hidden Lines To Be Visible

Aug 3, 2011

Problems I'm having with hidden lines being visible in certain viewports and not others.I've dimensioned my drawings in model space, which I prefer, and put the dimensions on a separate layer. However, including that layer in the viewport causes the hidden lines to be visible when plotted. If I turn that layer off, everything works great.

I have dimensions for the same object in plan view that I'm showing in a different viewport that works just great, but in the front elevation viewport it gets all screwy.

I can dimension in paper space just fine.I prefer to dimension in model space whenever possible.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Style Update (or Style Update Check) Upon Open Of A Drawing?

Nov 21, 2013

I am wondering if it is possible to do a style update (or style update check) upon open of a drawing? 

The example would be that I have stuff made from way back that the colors/dimension sytles ect dont match the current standard and upon opening a file where they are not current, it would either prompt to update immediatly OR update automatically with no prompting (preferred method).

I am doing a massive amount of updates from old files recently and to save myself 1 - 3 clicks per drawing would be wonderful.

AutoCAD .NET :: Process Multiple Drawing Files With Interface Hidden?

Apr 19, 2013

I am trying to create a C# program to do batch Title Block attribute updates on selected AutoCAD drawings.

What I would like to do is keep the AutoCAD interface hidden, and just display my custom form which would allow the user to select the drawings that they wish to process.

And then the custom program would load each drawing behind the scenes and update the Title Block attributes, but the AutoCAD interface would remain hidden.

Is something like this possible with AutoCAD 2010?  Are there any examples doing something like this (showing a custom form at startup, etc.)?

PS We do have newer versions of AutoCAD available if needed.  Our engineers use AutoCAD 2010, but we could use a newer version for this standalone tool which would only be used by 1 or 2 people.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Showing Hidden Lines In Drawing File

Can we show or hide the model edges with respect to Features or parts. I think, there must be only two options. ie. "Show all hidden edges" or "show all" and "Hide all edges".

AutoCad :: Hidden Line Or ISO Dash Lingers And Carries Into Drawing

Sep 5, 2013

Many is the time that I need to have hidden, or dashed lines added to a drawing. I do this by putting LTYPE in the command line then loading the dash or hidden line that I want. The problem is that long after I have done this, I get a dashed line on any line that I attempt to draw. Even if I dimension something, the arrows and lines are also dashed lines. I go back into Modify Properties and LTYPE and attempt to delete the line types that I have added and I am not allowed to delete them.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Hidden Lines Of Specific Parts In Assembly Drawing View

Oct 24, 2011
