  1. I've set a viewport's shade plot to "legacy hidden" but after I save it automatically returns to "as displayed". The VP shade plot settings will not hold. Funny thing is... If i flip to the MS tab and save, then back to the PS tab, the VP shade plots are retained at "legacy hidden". But anytime I save while on a layout tab the VPs all return to "as displayed". Has anyone encountered this before or have any advice on fixing it? Thanks in advance! David System - AutoCAD Mechanical 2014
  2. When i try and plot my 3D model in the Hidden style, so it simply looks like a black line drawing the plot comes out weird. The plot for some reason adds a thick black line around my entire plot, and makes all the other lightweights look faded out. How can i fix this??primary bar 3-Layout2.pdf

    ACAD MEP - Plotting

    In desperate need of help! Is there a 'special' set up for plotting in MEP? What I want to do is have shadeplot "hidden" on my viewport but keep the duct centrelines. We don't want to send our client 2D wireframe type drawings AND we don't want to have to manually re-do the centrelines.
  4. I am having some difficulties when printing via dwg to pdf a rendered shade plot viewport in a layout. However, there is no problem using realistic shade plot. I am using the following materials: Metal | Alumininum (Anodized Blue, Anodized Blue-Gray), Plastic and Glass and the result is not good as all. Can anybody help me on this? I am also looking on a tutorial on strategic place to place light for even more realistic rendering. Examples.dwg Example Rendered.pdf Example Realistic.pdf
  5. I've read several threads about having problems with lines that are supposed to be hidden or obscured continuing to show up in paper space and plotting, but none of them have been able to help. Here's the situation: I'm drawing objects (walls, platforms, etc.) in 3d made up primarily of extruded polygons. I want to be able to plot these objects in a way that hides all of the lines which are obscured by other objects. Currently I have my viewports set up with a 2D Wireframe visual style and a Hidden shade plot. This isn't working for me. I'm still getting all of the lines in the drawing visible no matter what. Here's the strange thing: It seems to work perfectly fine in plan view, but not in front view. Also, it's worked fine in the past. It seems that the problem has gotten progressively worse over the past year or so. I don't know if I changed a setting without knowing it or if there's some software problem or what. Any ideas? FYI, I'm using AutoCAD 2008.
