[Equest-users] Issue with drawings zones in wizard

I have come across similar issues when a zone accidentally had two vertices with the same point.  Sometimes it helps to run the simulation, then open the BDL file and search for “Error”, or “Warning”.

If you are still using Equest 3.64 it has a limit on size and this may be your problem.  The limits were expanded in the latest version 3.65.

You can combine similar zones without a loss of accuracy and simplify your model.

Hope this helps

So I have a new project in which I have completed drawing the first floor outline and zones.  See below image showing the completed floor plan.

However, when I go to the detailed mode, many of these zones are not defined.  It looks like they just do not exist.  See below image.

Has anyone encountered this issue before?  I’ve tried re-drawing the zones and nothing seems to be working.
