Issue with 3D Items Highlight Box and Size Accuracy
Read 842 times

I keep having a reoccurring issue when I try to draw in 3D. TurboCAD Pro Platinum 2017 is what I am using on a Windows 10 Professional computer.  Sometimes the highlight will be the same exact size as my 3D item sometimes it will be a little bit bigger.  Any ideas as to why the highlight box is not the same size as the 3D object?   3D box is a 3 1/2" X 15'-10" polyline that was simple extruded to a height of 1 1/2".  This issue seems to affect 3D objects I am working with.  It does not have any effect on 2D items.

As per you other topic it could be your Coordinate System setup... I always set mine to Entity CS. You can see with these comparisons attached that World CS does not show the correct size due to a slight rotation as highlighted in the Entity CS option with 0.001 and showing the correct dimensions in the inspector....

I have switched these settings and still get the same issue.  My gut is telling me it is something graphics related.  I don't have this issue with 2D objects, only 3D objects.

This is issue with 'Simple Extrude' extents if pen width  > 0;
i.e option 'Geometric select edit' does not work correctly for 'Simple Extrude'.
