There are some missing lines in the Plan and Section views. Why?

There are two reasons why some lines might be missing in the Plan and Section views:

  • 1. Document units absolute tolerance: when there is not enough units tolerance in your document, the plan and section views don’t show all level of detail they could. Go to Rhino Options > Units, and set the Absolute Tolerance to 0.001, for example. After that, select the Plan and Section views and update them with the _vaUpdate command VA_Update.jpg.
  • 2. Tolerance factor: unlike the Make2D command, the vaPlanView and vaSection commands can simplify the 2D drawing they generate in order to save time when there is a big model with a lot of detail to represent. You can change this level of detail by editing the Plan view/Section view “Tolerance Factor” value, that you can find in the Plan view/Section view properties, in the Rhino properties panelproperties. The smaller this Tolerance factor is, the more accurate the 2D drawing will be created.
