Mesh problem

Not applicable
Any thoughts on how this happened and how to fix it? The mesh shows up as (mostly) wireframe in the 3D window as well.

I have seen something like this in a TW project and in that case was a SEO problem. Apparently there is a point were if you have too many SEOs on a mesh AC is unable to generate the 3D of it. It looks like a bug in the current hot fix since for that project I never had that issue before and it was started in AC15. My solution was to split the target mesh until it started to show again.

Two things to check:
1. That the Mesh does not have any point(s) below its bottom plane.
2. That the Mesh's layer is not set to Wireframe.

You should add a Signature to your Profile (click the Profile button near the top of this page) with your ArchiCAD version and operating system (see mine for an example) for more accurate help in this forum.

The strange bit is the offset between the selection dots and where the wireframe is showing up. I think Eduardo may be right on this. I have seen odd behavior after too any SEOs have been done to a mesh, or after recursive ones. It is also possible to mess them up just by dragging a node so the boundary crosses itself.
