Stairs and Railing MVO


Hello, i'm having problems visualizing my 3D model for Stairs and Railing on my project.

They seem to be affected by some MVO status but everything is in default and turned off.

I have a base model for terrain with BIMcloud associeted buildings in different files, in the file of the building everything is fine in 3D.

Only in my main file I have this issue, and not only for associeted files, but if I try to make new stairs they also apear this way.


Thank you!



hi, this looks same as the issue another user had. I'm not sure what is the solution tho.

Archicad 25, build 4013

odd. haven't seen this with any of my files.


this isn't a setting in the stair itself?



like when you can override the MVO & have the display of the stair set by itself?

No, the settings are set to go with MVO 

But even if it was so, the stairs in the other file is fine, it's something wrong in some viewing settings in this main file


Even tried to make new stairs with pre-made settings:

very odd glitch...

having gone to the forum link in mija's response, i wonder if the fix to this would be to save the Teamwork file back into a solo file, do a "Open and Repair" operation on the solo file, then re-upload it to the BIM server.


does that fix it?

Yes, i tried that too and nothing worked
Also updated my Archicad to build 5010 and still no change

So, I figured something out, but I still believe it is a bug (or i'm just dumb)
If I go to a view with set MVO (fit for exemple to a 1:500 scale) chage to default and then come back to the 3D view, it works fine!
But if I don't change the MVO before going to 3D, it will stay with the wrong MVO even if i change it on the settings.


Even saving the 3D view will not make a difference, if i go to my floorplan with 1:500 MVO and then go to my Test view with the right settings, it goes back as beeing the faulty stairs.


For now it will do, but hope they fix it soon.

Thank you for your help sir.
