Sometimes a part magicly turns faces invisible.

Breaks mates if they use this suddenly invisible face.

Not transparent, not display change, just random invisible faces.

Ctrl Q is the only way to get faces back.

did a Rollback Quadro driver from 376 to approved 354 yesterday cause i thought this may be the cause.

Example happened today.

Suddenly after all morning with assem open.

Magic invisible face appeared


open part


Ctrl Q rebuild fixed



Has anyone else seen behavior like this?
