Why does part of my object missing

A. Your part is missing from your post. The image does little to help us help you.
B. What exactly is your situation and your question?
Please refer to this: How do I do this SOLIDWORKS Forum thing?
There is nothing missing but looks like you changed the display of the part, bodies or the features. So first check and make sure the display is set to shaded with edges
no, a part of the dimple is missing.....not sure why because the opposite dimple is intact
created dimples on part but once i wrapped them I lost part of one of the dimples....not sure if this is a glitch or what
Everything we say here will be just a guess...a shot in the dark.....
There are at least 4 different reasons why your part might be showing up like that. And until I can see the part, they are just a guess to which one might be the cause.
1) Your display settings are set to wire-frame as Deepak Gupta already said.
2) Your solid body is set to transparent:
3) The appearance of your part is set to transparency:
4) The material that you applied is set to transparent:
There are probably other reasons.....but until I have the part in front of me...its just a guess
Expand the Solid Bodies folder near top of your feature manager tree. Are all bodies visible, or has something been hidden?

Well attach your file as Dennis has mentioned to find out the issue.
How can I attach a file to a forum post?

Hi, you didn't pick the radius feature it looks like that to me. Or your part isn't cylindrical to the center line?
Evidently ALL your clue receptors have been switched off.
so here is a different view that shows the missing part of the dimple better...

OK then.....it might just be a reorder of the history tree that you need. It looks like something downstream of the dimple cut it off. If you can, figure out what did it and drag it above the dimples. See if that works.
unfortunately Dan this is the last thing I created on the part so reordering would not work....that's why I'm a bit baffled as to why it would cut the one dimple but not the other...

Can you share the part?
Dan, here is the part
It appears to be cutting them off at the edges of the surface that the Wrap is projected onto. I don't know enough about working with Surfaces to fix it, but I'm sure someone else can help.
Yeah... it's odd that it will cut the dimple on one side but not the other....that's what makes me think it's some kind of glitch
I have no idea why you resorted to using "Wrap" when all you were creating was a simple Boss-Extrude. I don't know why it fails, but when created as a Boss-Extrude it works just fine.
I did it as a wrap because eventually those dimples will cover the majority of the surface of this part and on the curved surfaces it is easier for me to create this feature....if there is a better way I'm all for it
OK....I cannot open your part at all! It doesn't give me an error message or anything.
I even rebooted to see if there was an issue there. Just nothing. I hit File Open, and select the part.....and nothing happens. Solidworks doesn't even do any thinking.....its as if I had done nothing.
thats odd....I just opened it from the post on here
Thank you for helping us help you.
I saw strange visual artifacts within Wrap4 when editing that feature. I tried deselecting faces and reselecting them, in various orders with same results.
I rolled back to first feature, edited sketch, selected chain, and used Fit Spline to remove the endpoints and thus the edges between selected faces later. This, naturally, blew up the whole tree and caused me to step by step a fix with each feature and sketch along the way. When I needed a direction for the linear pattern to replace the former edge which drove that, I then rolled back to the origin and added an Axis from primary reference planes, then used it to roll forward and drive the linear pattern direction. Axes are far more stable than edges, generally. I attach part and image.
Unasked criticism: You really would do better with fully defined sketches along the way.
thanks for helping with this...it's greatly appreciated
LPattern2 broke and I couldn't get it to reproduce. (So I just suppressed it and moved on)
Thanks again Tom....since you had the best fix I thought maybe I could pick your brain. I had changed the pattern of the bumps to more linear, pretty much starting from scratch. I was applying fillets to the bumps and noticed 3 of them did some strange things (see screenshot).
On the original part this was not an issue so I'm not sure what has happened and why distort only three of the circles.
