Hidden Line Renders and Creating Plans
Read 2666 times

Whenever I try to render larger drawings in hidden line mode TC runs for several minutes and crashes. As I write this, I have a hidden line render going for 17 minutes.

If I export the file and SAT and import into Spatial's free HOOPS viewer, it generates a hidden line drawing from the same file in seconds (not very useful--but it does render quickly).

In the HOOPS viewer, I can rotate the model and effectively instantly get a new hidden line render.

I simply am not able to create plans from my models.

Is there some other tool out there that I can use to generate plans from an SAT file exported from TC? I would be able to do profiles, sectional views and be able to do some cleanup on the drawning to get rid of stray lines.

If you get a UE dialog, see this page, Unhandled Exception, on what to do. Support might be able to figure out what's wrong from the saved Details file. They may also want to see the actual drawing file.

When I get to the Save to file step, TC does nothing. Can click the button repeatedly but nothing happens.

I'm not sure what could be wrong, hopefully someone at Support can figure this out.

I tried crashing it today (something easy to do but takes a long time) and was able to get a log file. Just has the same stuff as on the screen.

Can you post the file? I'm wondering whether disabling Part History might help your situation.

It is disabled. The file itself is 30MB.

Brings me back to the original.....is there some other tool that can be used to generate plans from SAT files? So I could generate my models in TC and use something else to create printed output?
