Is there a setting to determine solids vs surfaces?

Participant

Is there a setting to determine solids vs surfaces?

Publishing Pro-E WF4 via cadworker... Windchill 9.1 M050.


When you use sections in PV Lite there is no solid material, in other words it looks like what it would if you sectioned a Pro-E surface model. Is there a setting or preference that determines this? Any help greatly appreciated.

Looks like this (solid) in our PV 9.0 clients. Not sure about Lite for either 9.0 or 9.1 - we don't currently use.

Please enable 'cap section' option from the tool bar. This would give the similar graphics feedback as in ProE.

For an unknown reason, PTC moved the cap section out of Lite version in around the M020 or M030 version of PView 9.1. Since that version, you need to have PView Professional to have Caped sections available.


We've reported to PTC it was to be in the Lite version (no way to pay for this feature). Hopefully, I've seen in the pre-prod version of PView 10, that caped sections were back to Lite version.
