  • Reduce or increase the graphics resolution

    Hello everybody,
    It's good to back on the forum! I will maintain absolute nudity soberiety while on the forum, I promise.

    But, now it's time for an actual PC_DMIS related question. How do I go about reducing the resolution of my CAD as it is viewed on the screen? I know that it is possible through the settings editor, but, I can't remember which line to look for. What I am talking about is the appearance of the CAD model. For an example I would refer to the way that a CAD model looks when viewed with the default settings in PC-DMIS. The ID's and OD's are round in appearance. There is a setting that allows for a person to reduce the resolution (my term, don't know if it is correct), where by the ID's and OD's take on an appearance of being rather "boxy" or having chopped off edges (not a round hole or stud).

    Speaking of this, is there a way to change the tolerance lines within an analysis view? I am trying to prove myself correct in that, 1.) the analysis view tolerance lines are not controlled by the CAD resolution but by the amount of points making up the ID, and 2.) the analysis view tolerance lines are not a changeable item.

    Any help always appreciated. Hope I made sense.

          Welcome back James!

          The only way to affect your so called "resolution" of the CAD i know of
          is the tessellation multiplier in the OpenGL-Options.
          Hope that helps.

                Yes, the OpenGL settings and Tessellation. Edit:Preferences: the last Item in the list is OpenGL

                This is something I adjust occasionally when the CAD files are not showing surfaces.

                Lately, it occurs to me
                What a long, strange trip it's been.

                  Thanks John!!!

                  That is the direction I needed. I haven't looked for this stuff since I think before 3.5. And prior to 3.5 you had to go through the Settings Editor. Now I can access it through the open program. I knew someone here would point me in the right direction.

                    Yeah open GL. the smaller the tessalation value the greater the resolution. As for the analysis view just change the "multiplier" in the dimension window or the Analysis window. The default is 10. The bigger the number the highte the "mag".
