I have created detail views with technical illustration. I saved my files and open again. I realized these detail views missing as you can see in image. How can i fix it? It depends on what?
When a client had the issue the following was told to me:
The issue appears to have been caused by a use error. If you select one of the 2D images generated from the digger, then look at the properties you will notice that the "Texture > Map path" is empty. This path points to the location that the created image is saved.
The image generated by the digger is saved in a location determined in the Composer Preferences. If the image is saved in a location that automatically has its contents deleted after a period of time, it is likely that this location has been deleted while working, , causing the 2D image to be lost. Also if this folder had been manually deleted the file will have been lost.
To determine this location select "File > Preferences > Advanced Settings" and browse to the "Paths" category. The location where the image is saved is "PathFolderWork".
If this location is altered, Composer must be restarted before it takes effect.
Something to bear in mind is that when the file is saved as a .smg all of the property information, geometry, and view information is collected from the local locations and saved into a single file. When this is opened in a new Composer session the files are effectively extracted to a new temporary location often, "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Temp\%smgfilename%". Any new views created in this session, using the digger are then saved to a user defined location, "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Temp" until the file is saved and composer closed, ending the session.
Unfortunately the only way to get the images back (if they can't be located on the customer machine) is to create them using the digger, and updating the views.
So try to see if you can browse to the pictures location and see if the 2d pictures are there. Then you manually need to link them.
If this problem happens more then once please contact your Soliworks Reseller.
With kind regards
I am going to assume you have already tried to open and close it again to see if that helps. The few times this has happened to me that will work. If not select your detail views and update them. Once that is done save your view again. Far as I am aware this is just a bug.
Thanks for your answer. Yes i have tried to open and close many times. I will pay attention about update detail view before saving . However can i bring back these view any method?
I am fairly certain that you are going to have to update your detail views individually to bring them back. I am unaware of a fix to get them all back once this has happened. Last I was told this was a bug but I haven't had it happen to me in awhile. You may want to call your VAR and see what they have to say about it. Please let us know what they say or if you find a better solution.
ı have the same issue
some times when I miss views in drawings, I do a CTRL+Q to do a forced rebuild and the views come back. Have you tried that?
Thanks for your answer. The VAR has given to me exactly same answer.Derek Parks However how can it delete these file from temp folder? My customer said that didn't delete manually.
Think we may be on separate pages. The digger and detail views are too separate things. IMO the digger is worthless and full of bugs. I would just stick to creating details views in the technical or Hi resolution workshops.
