Update 3D models

When the 3D model of an element that is visible in the 3D scene is out of date, its icon in the Object Explorer presents an exclamation mark. The icons for objects, slices, contours , dot sets and paths that are out of date are , , , , . respectively.

To update the 3D model of any of these elements, right click on it in the Object Explorer and select Update in the context menu (see also how to display the context menu directly from the 3D scene.) or select the element in the Object Explorer and click  that appears on top of the Object Explorer.

The option Update All can be used to update the 3D models of several elements in one operation. To update all visible contours, dot sets, paths (and labels if visible) and slices that intersect an object, right click on the object in the Object Explorer and select Update All from the context menu. Similarly, to update all the visible objects of a category together with all the visible contours, dot sets, paths (and labels if visible) and slices that intersect them, right click on the category in the Object Explorer and select Update All from the context menu. To update all visible contours, dot sets and path (and labels if visible) of an object in a specific slice, right click on the slice in the Object Explorer and select Update All from the context menu.
