When saving an new object which contains the Primitives 70>Ellipsoid 70 with cutting plan "on", the cutting plan does not "save" with the new object.

Hi Jay,
Post the script. I've experienced this on a number of occasions and have learned that many times you need to add that parameter to the script, however when I've used the SEO and saved from the floor plan it usually saves and places as intended.

Thanks for the help Jeffrey. I am still mostly working in AC 7.03 (no SEO).
Here is the 2D Script for the object:

Hi Jay,
The reason your part will not work is that it is calling the ellipsoid which is actually a sphere that contains a parameters script which is not available to the "new" object, unfortunately a simple copy and paste of this info will not work as the other shapes that are called have the "same" parameters.

Try this and play around with it until you get the correct dimensions. Paste this in the 3d script of a new object, you must create a new dimension parameter ( r1 ) for it to work. Unfortunately I have never been successful at masking the lines that split the two ellipses but maybe someone else here can help us both with this.


ADDz r1*2
r2=r1*2
cutplane 90

ELLIPS r2, r1

ROTx -180
ELLIPS r2, r1
cutend
DEL 2

ADDz r1/3*2+2"
ROTX 90
CYLIND 2",r1/3*2
DEL 2

ROTz 90
ADDy -r1
ADDx -2 3/4"
BLOCK 3/4", r2,r2*2
DEL 3

Paste this in the 2d script window until you have all the parameters worked out and then create a 2d symbol as I'm assuming that this direct vent's size is set.
