Nothing shown after playing with persistent section cut

Post by MrE10 »

Hello

So I've played around with the new section cut feature and after trying the "Keep only cuts visible when closing" hook I don't see anything anymore. No matter which body I show/hide, nothing is shown. Reopening FreeCAD didn't help neither. Any idea what I could do? Is there a way to "reset" this?

thanks a lot

all bodies are invisible (why: I don't know)
I made them visible one by one: kicking the space bar

Tried dozens of times... did never work for me 🤷‍♂️
I finally restored the file from backup.

Well done, Thanks.

You could add the info to the first post to make it more visible, but this is a minor issue.

General note: please provide a _simple_/small file to demonstrate a bug.

To your issue, in your screenshot I can see that no cut was ever made.
That you don't see anything is because you hided everything.

Take for example this state:

You won't see anything. Why? Because when you look into the Body container, all its items are hidden:

FreeCAD_0RX8fLrThw.png (15.77 KiB) Viewed 166 times
Make e.g. the last item visible and you will see something.

Concerning the section cut, once you created one, you will see it in the model tree:

And if I'm not mistake the cut is made based on what is visible so I don't thing you'll be able to make a cut until you make at least one object visible
