Problem with viewpoints
« on: September 30, 2015, 08:51:27 am »

Hi guys,

I'm back with a new question.

I'm trying to use the new viewpoint managing system.

So, I created a viewpoint with a section box in Pyrosim, and ran my simulation .

The simulation works perfectly, but when I open SMV, and choose my view, the building just disappears....

is there something I did'nt understand?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

BR

You might need to hit the 'q' key once or twice to switch smokeview out of CAD mode and into obstruction mode. The latest version of PyroSim changed Smokeview's default viewing mode.

I didn't read your question carefully enough before posting. Second attempt: If you can see the geometry in that view in PyroSim and it isn't visible in Smokeview then there may be a bug in the way PyroSim sends the view info to Smokeview. Can you share your PSM file?

Hi Charlie, and thank you for your answer.

My project is a building of a great and well-known NGO, so I can't post the psm file on a public forum. Is there any way to send you my psm safely?
