Looking to see if anyone has run into this. Using Creo 2 and I am working on some large assemblies. When I load the assembly that I am working on into my workspace all the solids come in as surfaces. I have been dealing with it for the last couple weeks. Typically it was just the parts/assemblies that were already in our Windchill system or the customer supplied parts/assemblies. Yesterday when i went to save Creo told me to regenerate the top assembly model to save, when I did the parts/assemblies that were showing as surfaces all of a sudden showed up as solids! Woohoo, I thought it was fixed, until i loaded the entire assembly again today and all of the parts I created showed up as surfaces (these parts were showing up properly yesterday). I tried a regen and nothing happened.
Thanks. Tried it. No change. Any other suggestions?
In Reply to Mark Peterson:
I would check your Config.pro setting for "capped_clip".
Yes - Display the model as solid when shaded and clipped (or sectioned). No - Displays the model as surfaces when shaded and clipped. That is the config per WF4. I never even knew this was an option till I got to my current job where it comes in real handy to see internal features of a solid.

I had a not-helper help out by creating shrinkwraps and replacing assembly components without being asked. Messed up a bunch of drawings that had sections that needed to be replaced with sections that did HLR on quilts.
Perhaps someone decided to help out as well.
To clarify: there are no shrinkwraps or sufaces actually in the assembly, they are all legitimate components modelled as solids and assembled, and I doubt it is a config issue because it is only 1 assembly that has the problem. Other people in the office have just started seeing this occasionally. I see it everytime I work on this one assembly.
