Disappearing Faces
« on: Mar 27, 2024, 14:52:43 PM »
I found some older threads on this topic but nothing definitive-what could be causing this? Played with all the graphics performance settings and no luck. Noticed I can make it happen by switching between open drawings after shading or orbiting in one then pop back in the other drawing and faces gone....Thanks in advance for any input!

I just got a new machine with a AMD Ryzen Threadripper, 128 GB ram and NVIDIA RTXA4000 card. It is happening much more now than with my old machine >:( And IT is baffled-

Looks like the same issue I am having, the fittings are actually disconnecting from your service. Are you in 2024?

Yes,24. There are posts from many years ago with the same issue-a couple suggested a cache issue.

Seems it is a profile thing. If I have 2 drawings open that use different profiles repeats every time I switch between drawings. Multiple drawings open with same profile-no issue.

I remember faces missing in a 2d view once. I think closing the view and reopening cures it for a while.

Well I thought we narrowed it down to the profiles. It surfaced again with 3 drawings(L1,2,3 same job profile)open. It seems if the drawing is open and sits idle it produces same result once you pop into it. Two drawings with two profiles switching between them I can make it happen immediately. I played with all the graphics settings, updated driver etc.
The only way to bring the faces back is to close and reopen the individual drawing......

Have you set the CACHEMAXFILES setting to 0?

Exiting a shaded mode to 2d wireframe produces this issue consistently with 2 drawings using 2 different profiles same session-
