RBE3 elements not visible after migrating to FEMAP 11.3

[ Edited ]

When I open a FEMAP 11.2.0 model in 11.3, all of my RBE3 elements are either excluded or just not visible. They have a mix of DOF, if that makes a difference. The RBE2s are visible.

 

I can list the elements and they seem to still be there. They are included in the solution. Just not visible.

 

Any workarounds?

 

There is also a strange black diagonal line in the model which is not selectable. It is only visible when elements are shown.

Try turning off performance graphics and see if that fixes it.

If not, then you may need to update your graphics card driver.

Turning off performance graphics did fix the problem.

 

I'm still not sure if performance graphics is faster or slower on my machine. It seems the same now, but when I first switched it on it did seem to speed up dynamic rotation a lot.

 

Edit: Performance graphics are way faster (30 FPS vs 6 FPS). Aside from this issue with the RBE3 elements not displaying it is much better. Is there something I can do to use performance graphics and see my RBE3s?

We've seen a couple of these with FEMAP v11.3.0, please try upgrade to the latest graphics driver, this has fixed the RBE3 problem for several FEMAP users.
