I had to redo a couple of detail views on a drawing and now those views look fuzzy. What could cause this? And how do I fix it?
I have had this on a couple of drawings when I zoom in and out, but the screen usually snaps
back to normal like almost instantly.
Did this just start happening? Does it do it to mre then just this drawing?
Have you tried restarting your computer?
I was working on this drawing and realized I had it named incorrectly. So I saved it as a new drawing number and then renamed the assembly model I was working with also to match. I then deleted the old models, since they were incorrect. Now when I open the drawing those two view are fuzzy and at first all the views were fuzzy. I closed and opened the drawing and thought it was fixed when the views cleared up. But those two views were still fuzzy. Could it be looking for the old model to reference to?
Yes, check for the references under File menu > Find references.
Yes, if those were detail views specifying specifics from that old
model it could definately be the cause.
How did you rename the files? I use Solidworks explorer
or I RC on the file in windows explorer and rename this way.
If you haven't gone too far why don''t you start over and rename them using one of these
methods and see if it helps.
I called in to tech support and I guess I had those views set to draft quality. We set them to high quality and they cleared up. All the references were still there and named correctly.
When I renamed the files, I opened the model and did a save as and did the same with the drawing. Then I deleted the wrongly named files.
Is this what you set?
Mine is always set to high quality so I never give it a second thought.
Weird that just these views were set that way and not all of them.
After thinking about what I said before if the view couldn't find the model it would show up as a
dashed lined box with an x through it.
Views can get set to draft mode if the drawing is rebuilding views and you do a save. You can get the prompt asking if you want to save some views as draft mode - I always click the X in the corner of the dialog which forces it to finish resolving the views. If you say yes, it will save some views as draft mode.
