This is definitely a software bug, and very annoying at that. Sometimes the vents and drains will appear in only one single layer of the fill, and then get covered up in subsequent layers. I have sent numerous examples to 3D in hopes that they will resolve the problem. Previewing all layers with vents & drains will let you be aware of any problems, but I have not found a way to get them to build; I've tried several different things, like editing the z value of the vent or drain in the *.V_D file, shifting the part in Z..... I gave up.
3D, please fix this!

Has anyone experienced problems with vents and drains in Lightyear 1.1 ? I
create them, then occasionally they disappear and I have to drill into the
SLA part. Currently I have to view the slice files to check. An ideas or
suggestions are invited.
