Curved flag set? Curved pgon? what are these things?

Not applicable
Rather sporadically when i try to either look at my project in 3D or look at various objects. I get an error message that "curved flag set for body without any curved pgon" What does this mean? and how do i fix it?

Can you give some information on your AC version and system spec?

Curved flag set for body without any curved pgon.

Is this a clue to what's going on? Also my archicad just quit on me. But it does that on occasion so...

(also I figured out AC meant archicad... sorry about that)
You appear to have an object placed that is causing this error. The flag is referring to a portion of GDL code that tells an object that it is curved, or is not curved.

You probably placed an object or change the parameters of an object that was not completely error proofed in it's coding. Try marqueeing half of the project and viewing it in 3D. If you get the error then the bad part(s) are present in what you see. If not select the other half of the project. Continue selecting halves of halves until you identify the problem part.

If the error message gives you an object ID then you can also isolate all objects with that ID and repeat the above process with a much smaller group.
