After using Cutting Planes to create a nice looking cut-a-way view, the render mode changes from Shaded Illustration to Smooth.
Is this a bug in V2013? Is there a way to make it work?
by using a cutting plane there is no possibility to use rendindering styles like technical or shaded.
Look into the Helpfile Ribbon Interface > Author > Cutting Planes there you find the following:
pardon, but this is no bug it's a Feature ;-)
There are a few bugs I have run into regarding the way cutting planes display but not this specific one. Try to shut off the cut or cuts in the collaboration tab and turn them back on to see if that solves your issue.
Now I must apologize to SolidWorks for implying this "feature" is a bug.
Next time, I will pay more attention when I read the help. JW
Exactly this "feature" is causing me massive problems.
I strongly urge SolidWorks to remove the so-called feature.
A way around this is to publish using the Technical Illustration workshop and uncheck the "Color Region" before you click "Save As".
