What would cause my shaded drawing view to get clipped as shown in the attached jpg? How do I fix this?
Outdated Graphics Card - do an upgrade..
Thanks for the reply. I thought the Quadro P2000 was a certified SW card. I'm using SW2015 on a win10 64 bit system. Could it be the driver?
I think the P2000 is still certified, I'm using driver R440 and not having any issues with it.
Just a random guess but perhaps SW 2015 is not compatible with the P2000?

It is certified, but the certification website only goes back to SW 2018:

I've seen view clipping in a couple of scenariosYou have perspective or a camera view turned on in a saved viewYou've repositioned part bodies using either a partmodel exploded view or a move/copy bodies feature.If it's a perspective view, then open the model, activate the view, zoom out a little and then update the view.
If it's a camera view, you can do the same as with a perspective view or you can set the clipping depth in the camera properties (note that camera views can also be orthographic)If it's a part model with an exploded view, you will probably need to the model loaded and the exploded view configuration displayed in order for the components to show in the correct place.
So this has been a bit mind warping. I ended up re-staring my system and re-opening the drawing. I noticed the view that was messed up was smaller than it should have been. It was set to 1/2 scale but was actually smaller than that. I placed another view of the part at 1/2 scale and it was sized correctly with no clipping. Deleted the original and so far so good. Thanks for the suggestions!
Have a look at this Keith, I used to have similar problems on 2014 and the problem was the empty view shells, though not everybody gets that problem for some reason.
Empty view shells in drawing?
Yes! It did have empty view shells in the drawing.
Delete these whenever you can, they were a source of alot of bugs when we started on SolidWorks in 2014.
I never found a way to really get rid of them, I tried recreating my template and it just keeps on creating itself.
