GDL: prism_ elements don't get executed in cutaway view

Robert Nichols

I have a base cabinet library object that we created for our own use. For a typical base, the sides, bottom and top of the case (not the countertop), and the kick pedestal are created with the PRISM_ command. For some reason, and I think this is a recent development, the components of the cabinet that are created with the PRISM_ command don't show when the view is constrained by a marquis in cutaway mode. The door faces and other parts that are generated with BRICK commands show up fine. When I simply select the object and elect to show it in 3D (i.e., no cutaway mode), it shows up complete. I've attached a screenshot of both the correct and troubled results. Any ideas?

So the doors, side panels and kickboard are all one object?

That cabinet to the right, is that the same object or a different one?

What happens if you rotate the view in 3D?

 

I am not aware of anything that will make a PRISM_ not show if displayed via a marquee.

This was my own fault. Bad code. Sorry to wave the red flag.
