    Default Disapearing Assembly

    I have a complex model that has disapeared. I know this sounds like a newbie mistake but it isn't as simple as the visability being turned off or the parts being suppressed. The assembly has a lot of components and it was working fine when I closed the program. The next morning when I started to work on the project again...the model was gone. I have attatched a picture so you can see for yourself. Any help would be appreciated.

    Try right clicking on one of the parts and choosing 'Find in Window'.

    My first guess is that there's a part inserted far away from the rest of the assembly, so when you Zoom Extents, you zoom so far away from the part you can't see them anymore.

    I'm inclined to agree with Johnathan, but just to make sure, have you tried opening an old version of the assembly, just to see how that behaves?

    If you look in the new uploaded image, as I highlight items in the browser I can see where they should be displayed as wireframe. I know this isn't a zoom issue since I can see the wireframe of all the parts.

    Can you save a copy of the assembly and delete all but one of the parts?
    Verify that the problem still exists and then zip and post the trimmed down assembly and part.

    If when you start this experiment so that someone else can check the problem and...
    If you delete all the parts except one from the assemby and the problem suddenly corrects itself then go back and delete parts one-by-one to try to isolate the problem.

    If virtually everthing in the assembly is proprietary and you cannot release then simply add a box dummy part and repeat above. If you don't discover the solution post the iam and dummy ipt.
