Model looks hollow

Creator

Dear All,

 

I have made a model which suddenly appears like it is hollow. But it still behaves like a solid model (weigth normal, selecting is normal). 

After I made some changes to the model it somehow changed to a hollow looking model. And now even after the first extrude action it already looks hollow.

It must be a graphical thing I would say. Updating, cleanup and restarting doesn't help.

What could it be?

Is the sketch profile closed? Any very small curves?

I have no small curves. And the sketch is closed. Also the extrude solid feature works fine.

A cross-section also shows a normal solid part.

Hi Michel,

Since you have already checked if it is a solid body so as a precaution can you run an Examine Geometry check (provided it is a graphical issue) on your model? Look for any sort of geometric inconsistency.

Also if you export your solid model in another part file...do you still get the same graphics issue?

Check your Section view settings.

it looks like you have the show caps turned off.

Smiley Happy I was also thinking of the section clipped view...but the 3rd png shared by Michel made me think otherwise.

The examine Geometry didn't find any errors on the concerning extrude.

 

I have exported it to step and imported it again. The step file model is just fine. A solid model.

Did you check your section view? maybe that is still on?

Show cap is turned on.

But it also shows a hollow model when not using section view.

Perhaps you are in a partial shaded mode and that face isn't shaded?
