I am working with two parts that were built using scan data as reference geometry. The scan data was imported using scan to 3D. I have an assembly that contains both parts and a few others.
Here's the thing: everything seems fine, and then after a period of time the scan data/mesh just disappears - from both the assembly and the underlying part files. Happens to both of them at the same time. The "mesh" still shows in the feature tree, but you can't show/hide it (that option is gone from the menu). Solidworks no longer even recognizes it as a mesh/point cloud file - if you go to the "Scan to 3D" menu the edit options are grayed out (see attached screenshot).
If I load a previously saved version of the files, everything is fine, so it is definitely related to the file itself.
Any thoughts? Any help much appreciated, this is a real bummer - the only way to deal with it is to revert to a previous version and redo any lost work.
Thanks in advance!
