Hi all. I am very new to this. Been creating a model of a van conversion. I was working close up and the whole model disappeared. Cant find it by zooming. I did retrieve a line of the wheel arch at one stage but cannot find it again. Can some suggest how to get it back. I can’t even see the axis lines.
start with " shift-Z " see anything?
Nope. Tried that. Tried zoom extent. Can’t find the bugger.
Share the .skp file.
How do I do that exactly. Sorry. Very green.
So I’ve managed to download the .skp how and where do I share it.
Drag it and drop it into a reply here.

Thanks appreciate the help.
The camera has moved off to beyond Jupiter, so everything is too small to see. Let me see if I can fix it…

It would be a good idea to spend some time learning about the use of components and groups.
Mate your a legend. How do I fix it if I do it again? I’ll look into it.
The heart of the problem is that you have somehow created a face that has 26 of its edges with enormous lengths (effectively infinite). I’m not sure how you did that. The 26 edges suggests maybe it was a circle that somehow was mis-scaled. Not knowing the steps that made it, I can’t tell you how to avoid doing it again. But while it is there, any attempt to zoom extents will force the camera to step similarly far away. I erased those edges using some Ruby scripting, and got the same thing as @DaveR showed.
As he noted, you have a great amount of loose edges and faces that ought to be wrapped in groups or components, though that is not the direct cause of the problem.
