    Default 3d images in viewports. Ghost lines & images using 3dclip?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Ive been having problems when cutting section views and elevations using the 3dclipping command. in the viewports im seeing ghost objects and lines that do not show up in the plots, but when im viewing it in paperspace, the drawing is filled with the invinsible "Ghost" objects and lines that are in clearly not within the clipping "slice". is this just a problem i am going to have to live with, or is there a variable/command that i can implement to get rid of the nuisances? i can get a screen shot if need be.

    this is what im getting in the viewports. the "ghost" lines and circles do not plot, but im sure you can imagine they are quite a nuisance when trying to annotate these plan drawings

    are they located on different layers? have you tried regen or redrawall? they are located under your view menu or you can type regen, or redrawall(i think)

    neither command have any effect on the ghosting lines. all of the pipe and fittings are in Cadworx and have their own layers.
