Visibility state not visable
« on: July 15, 2009, 12:25:45 PM »
OK, what I mean by this is can you create a visibility state(s) and NOT have the ability to change them manually in the drawing?  I tried making the visibility state marker invisible in current state, but that didnt work.  Where I am going with this, is I would like to duplicate some ADT functionallity where you have a 2D view in plan, and it switches to a 3d view when your viewpoint moves from 0,0,1.

Any ideas?

Wow, that's a good idear. 

Doesn't changing the # of grips to ZERO eliminate it enough, or am I on the wrong track?

I haven't tried that, ummmmm, how do you do that?

You can still get around it by changing the vis-state in the properties palette.

Yes, but I am not expecting the bumps on the log to look there

For those interested, here is a sample of my 2d-3d block.  The best way to see it is to set an iso view, grip the dwg and use properties to switch the visibility states.

Pretty wicked.  How're you going to accomplish the toggling based on view?

nicely done. I thought I was the only one working with 3d dynamics

I am revamping my Substation design tool for the 3rd time, and I thought I would add this functionallity.  Currently, I am only doing it through the push of one of my buttons.  If a user changes the view w/o using the correct button, nothing happens.  I want to add the ability to have a reactor that senses the vpoint change.  The problem I have not looked into yet is Shift-Wheel rotate.  Does that update vpoint right away or is it hidden somewhere.

What are you doing?  Arch or otherwise?

What sort of functions have you managed to execute with dynamic blocks in 3d?
