Viewport Clipping Issues

How do I make this stop happening? The closest I can get to anything is about 30’. My model is dead on the axis intersection.


#2

This is called ‘camera clipping’ , click ‘zoom extents’ button to fix it. (Or move your model closer to origin)
Check this article for more info: Clipping and missing faces


#3

I did everything instructed on that page and it didn’t change anything.


#4

Are you in perspective or 2 point perspective?


#5

Allowing us to work with the model would help us help you, if you’re at liberty to share the file.


#6

In perspective. Pro Field of view 30 degrees. Model is too big to share.

Model is too big to share.

Too big even for the 3D Warehouse.


#9

I’ll delete some things and save a stripped down model so you can see it.


#10

Actually, deleting the large-scale things fixed the clipping. I drew a plane out 15000’ to simulate the ocean. I’d like that to show in the renderings. How can I do that without the clipping? I can work in it for now, but I would want to add the ocean in for the renderings as it’s an ocean-front house.


#11

And now it isn’t clipping even with the full ocean plan in there. Go figure.


#12

Thank you for your responses. The model seemed to fix itself after I saved a version to export. Guess it got jealous and decided to act right.


#13

How about using an image as a backdrop (vertically)? Or, if you just want a blue plane stretching to infinity, make the ground in your style blue.


#14

I have similar problem. Only slightly different. All works perfect until I activate the group i want to work in only then clipping starts. (version 17.1)


#15

There is probably something in the group (leader text, hidden edges…) that is far away from origin.
Make the group a component and save as (right click), then investigate the component file, to see what is bothering, (zoom extends, turn hidden geometry on, check model info, etc )
When done, reload the component by the edited file

There is no harm done in updating your version to 17.2


#16

Thanks for the tip. It did not solve the problem but is an nice way to work anyway. So very useful tip.
I found something on Youtube and that helped a bit I have changed the camera’s view angle to 15 in stead of 35 and that made working better
