3d cutting planes

Anonymous

Well here I am stumped (or stupid) again.
Through: Archicad stuff site:http://archicadstuff.blogspot.com/
I Tried:
1. graphisoft.com
2. archicad-talk.graphisoft.com
3. archicadwiki.com
4. tr.graphisoftus.com
5. selfgdl.com
6. archicad.ca
7. onland.info
8. archiradar.com
9. parch.com
10. digitalvis.com
11. archicadselect.com
Also, of course, tried all the normal suspect keys and mouse combinations.


Read the wonderful (not) manual.=>go to AC help, (don't pass go, don't collect)
Go to help: Nothing there, so, here I am again.
Oh, should say, I tried a hammer on the keyboard, that almost did it.
Tried shaking the screen upside down, (nice colors man) but, didn't help.
Wiki got:Your search query "3d cutting planes view size" didn't return any results
Did I forget the secrete code, again??
Anyway, without any further adieu, my question is how in the name of:___do you change the view size in the dialog box?

My view use to be larger, but I forgot to pay the gods, and look at what they did to me.
So how do you change the size of the 3d cutting plane view? Please?

It's absolutely useless at this size.
Thanks
Bier

HI Barry
Thanks for the lead to the post.
However, after reading,, trying and rereading it 2 more times, I have to say it's not working for me, (maybe I'm the exception?)
I've expanded the whole dialog, (which of course does not help).
I've tried to expand the side view I'm interested in and that does not work either (see the "expansion" griper shape of the curser) in attachment.
Sorry, griper did not show up in image.
And of course tried the 3d marque, all to total failure.
And to ad further insult to injury, GS bad boy team has the whole damnn thing regenerate not once, not twice, not three times, but four, just for trying to expand the view I want! What a bunch of S#!t.
The team that controls this should be fired!
Even if there is a way to do this, it's just too, too, damnn hidden.
If anyone thinks I cussed too much over this, ha, I really wanted to use the F-word.
Where in the world is the GS explanation on how to expand the individual view so they are not totally useless?
Anybody know?

Strange.
I draw a marquee in plan, view that in 3D and then open the cutting plan dialogue and it zooms to what I marqueed.
This was in version 12 - latest hotfix.

But I noticed that if the marquee crosses something that continues for some distance past the marquee (wall, slab, mesh), the cutting plane dialogue still zooms to the extent of the cut off elements - even though it doesn't show them.

Selecting just the items you want in plan and viewing that in 3D seems to work.

While this might not be true in PC, the 3D Cutting Planes Dialog can be stretched larger for more accuracy.

It can be done on the PC as well.
Not only that, but also the dividing bars between the 3 view panes can be moved to resize them to your needs.

Bier,

You're being too specific when searching. Use more general terms. It can only find an item if someone else has used exactly the same terms in the thread as the search you are doing. A search for "cutting planes", for example, brings up lots of relevant threads using just the standard search facility.

Thanks everyone for trying.

HI Barry,
I’m am also 12/ latest hot fix.
Thanks for the reply and your attempts to help, but still it does not work for me, for some reason.
Took note of your comment, so I deleted my basic mesh to only have this medium size house show,
with nothing extending out anywhere, still view is tiny.

Tried selecting in plan then: Show selection/marquee in 3d, no go.
All still show tiny useless image in dialog box.

I know it’s got to be something I did to make them so small, because although they are never large enough
for my taste, they certainly were at least barely usable, like this is useless.

Dwight
I have dialog box stretch to max as per screen shot.

Laszlonagy; as per my previous explanation, expanding the individual 3 orthogonal views does not work.
For some reason, the gripper that is suppose to do this was showing on my screen as I tried, and when attempting the screen capture, but as
per my second post, it did not show up when I did the screen shot.
That is related to my rant about when I try to expand one of the three views, all that happens is that
the three views start to regenerate in sequence, counter clockwise, AND THEY EACH DO THAT FOUR
F-ING TIMES!; while I wait, and then it does NOT expand!

Peter, your right, you got me on that one. I know better than that, but I was at the end of so many searches without any specific help from them, I was at the end and giving up.
Now at the GS wiki: I’ve tried; 3d cutting plane, cutting plane, cutting planes and get nothing, yet other parts of this wiki are working, (did that as a sum check).

But nothing that anybody has said or has searched has worked!

And I’m still there, hanging by a thread, ouch that hurts.

AND, please, would someone please, please, please, point me to where G.S. explains how to expand the 3d Cutting plane view, in their point of view??
Thanks!
Bier
ps
This has been my most hassle free model in 12 so far, until this debacle showed up.
