Need urgent help !! My 3D doesn't show anymore.

The model exists, the elements are there because I can select them, move them and do all the setiting on them in 3D window, but they are masked/ invisible. The 3D screen is completely blank.

I tried to select one element in the plan and isolate it in 3D window, it does show up, but when I hit the shortcut to visualize the entire model, then it turns invisible. The problem is only with this project. I opened other projects and they works just fine.

Plans, sections and façade work properly.

I checked 3D styles, Graphic substitutions, Layer combinations, Views options, Renovation filter, etc. nothing seems to work.

Thanks for helping me out to get back my 3D.

I know you say you have checked the 3D styles.
But can you see the 3D if you switch to the 'Vectorial Engine' in 3D styles rather than 'OpenGL'?

Unless I am missing something, it appears your model view and renovation status is different between your two snapshots (as shown at the bottom of the screens). Perhaps that is presenting some significant visual variation?

Thanks for your answers.

The 3D indeed shows with Vectorial Engine.

In the pictures a recent back up back of the project that works fine.

I found the problem. It was an error in the project because of two parallel walls that were intersecting to infinite. Thanks to Barry I could observe those walls in 3D Vectorial Engine. Once I deleted the walls, my 3D is back.

Thanks. Cheers.

Glad you found the answer.
It seemed odd that you could see one wall in OpenGL but not all.
I had no idea the vectorial engine would show you the problem - I was wondering if it was a video card or driver issue.

I could see many walls and object if I isolated them in 3D but when I was selecting all the model, including the two infinite walls would cause the error and everything was dissapearing.
