I created a model and added an unwrap uvw and a simple rotating animation. I opened the file today and the model has gone! I can still see the thumbnail of it in the file>open menu, and the materials are still in the library, but the mesh has gone!

Has this happened to anyone else, is there a cure to stop me spending another 2 days modeling it again????????

I'm using 3DS Max 8 with SP2.

Ok check the following things:

Click the Unhide All button.

See if it is still in the scene by trying to select it from the list

Try clicking the frame all and frame selected object option.

If it is, remove the UVW modifier and try converting to an editable poly, select polygon selection and then click unhide all int the ploy roll out.

If you can still select it, try resetting the X Form.

Thanks for those tips, unfortunately they didn't work (tried some other stuff too), I ended up doing the model again (damn deadlines).

Thanks again.
