Have you ever plotted a file and notice a single line or lines that extend to the edge of the plot (known as zingers) that are not in the design file?
This behavior can be caused by a bad element or elements in the design file. More than likely the end points of the element are corrupt. Here are few things to try:
mdl load verifydgn
Note if in the message center to you are getting errors similar to:
Verify ScanRange error: xlow=9223372036854775807 > xhigh=-9223372036854775808
If there is some remaining, enter the following in the key-in field:
mdl load fixrange
Once again run “verifydgn verify”. Again check the message center for ScanRange errors. If none, try plotting the file.
If the zingers are still on the plot, open the design file in MicroStation, fit the contents and place a fence block around the geometry. Now do a “Copy Fence Contents to New File”. Open the new file and try plotting. More than likely the zingers and your “ScanRange” errors are gone.
