I have successfully imported a step file (3D Box model) and decided to hide it to view components better. I now want to restore the 3D transparent box but I can't find anywhere to access this transparent non existent unit in order to remove the transparency. I am not at all able to select it. Please help! The board still shows components that it clashes with.

So I figured it out. At the bottom of the altium window -> PCB -> PCB List ->The 3D body is susally on Mechanical Layer 1, look for bodies with opacity of 0, double click and edit!!!!

You can also select it using its pink box on Mechanical 1 in the 2D editor.

If your problem is resolved, please mark the thread as [Solved] for future reference.

No you can not select the pink box, because that disappears along with the 3D object if the opacity increases to 100%
