Faces disappear/become transparent after export to PDF

Hi all—
I’m trying to export a scene to 2D PDF, but some of the faces disappear or become transparent.
Any idea as to why or what to do??


#2

Go to SketchUp’s Preferences and disable Hardware Acceleration. Do you then get the faces?


#3

Yes, I tried that but no luck :\

I also disabled transparency in style settings


#4

Interestingly, the same components exported just fine from a different model.


#5

That is weird.


#6

Did you update and save your style then update the scene that used that style? i.e. you didn’t have this over it


#7

That doesn’t seem to be the problem, no.

The only thing that’s worked has been copying it all into a new file.


#8

How large is the model causing the problem? Is it something you could upload or share a link with us here? At this point we’re just guessing…


#9

The original that didn’t work was 65MB—although I don’t quite know how it got so large, particularly as we have much more complex models that are quite smaller (this model was not all my doing).
Even after Saving As a new file it only drops to 55MB

The new file copied+pasted is only 24 MB.

Unfortunately I can’t share, but thanks for your insights.
I’ll go on copy and pasting into new files unless folks have better ideas.
