Well, now we have Levels visible in 3D (2019) and Internal Origins in 3D (2020.2), which can also be visible by default.
There is a simple solution to prevent this happening:
Default 3D ViewTypically, when you create a new 3D view, it has almost all categories visible, including Scope Boxes, Levels, Room Separation lines, Base Points and now Internal Origins. These can be very annoying in 3D views - particularly the Origins in perspectives.
Here is a procedure to prevent this:
- Go to a default 3D view
- In Visibility Graphics, turn off the visibility for Room Separation lines in model categories
- Turn off all three Origin sub-categories (Internal Origins visible in 3D from v2020.2)
- Turn off the Scope Boxes and Levels category (Levels are visible in 3D from v2019);
- [Optional] turn off other datum and view control categories like grids, reference lines, sections, elevations (in case they become visible in 3D views in the future)
- Create a new View Template from the 3D view – called ‘3D Default – do not delete’- [NB. “do not delete” part of the name is to prevent accidental changes later]
- Untick all the ‘Include’ boxes except for V/G Overrides Model & Annotation
- Click OK to close and save the View Template
- Go to the Type properties of the 3D view
- Set the ‘View Template applied to new views’ property as your new 3D Default view template
- Untick the ‘New views are dependent on template’ property – this means it just turns off those categories, without permanently applying a view template;
- You will subsequently be able to change other category visibilities;
- All new 3D views and perspective views will have those categories turned off by default (scope boxes, Levels, Origins, Room Separation lines etc).
