Clip Volume tools in Bentley Raceway and Cable Management help in creating section views and create drawing based on the section. After selecting Clip Volume, using Create Drawing option the section view based on the clip volume selection can be created.While working with large drawing files having many graphical elements and components such as 3D cables, it becomes time consuming to create drawings for section views. In many drawing files containing visible edges alert message is displayed “ Visible Edges Cache is out of date for one or more attachments” because of which the drawing creation process takes a lot of time. Drawing creation process takes a lot of time as it starts processing visible edges cache. By changing the visible edges display the drawing creation processing time can be improved.
1.Click on Yes to synchronize Cached visible edges display when the alert message is displayed.2.After defining the area for clip volume in the model, right click and select Create Drawing.3. In the Create Drawing dialog, go to Visible Edges section. 4.In the Visible Edges there are two display settings- Cached and Dynamic. In Cached visible edges mode the snapshot of geometry edges is stored when cache was generated hence, while drawing creation cache is reloaded which takes lot of processing time. In Dynamic visible edges the geometry edges are dynamically reflected immediately during drawing creation hence, the processing time is very less. Select the Dynamic visible edges setting.5. Click OK to create the drawing. The drawing creation process will be faster when working with large drawing files having many 3D cables and raceway elements.
