  • Show Path Lines And The Cad Model

    When I Run The 'show Path Lines' My Cad Model Becomes Transparent. If I Have A Small Part With Allot Of Scans And Move Points, It Is Very Hard To See Because You See All Your Scans Through The Part. In Older Versions You Only Saw What Was On That Side Of The Part. Does Anyone Know How To Turn The Transparency Off. I Tried The Lighting Area But It Didn't Work Either By Me Not Selecting The Right Areas Or That It Is Somewhere Different Than Here. Maybe There Is A Setting In The Editor Or Controller. Can Someone Help Me? Also, How Can You Make The Path Lines Larger In Size?

    Edit-Graphic Display Window-Lighting Materials-Lighting tab-Uncheck "enable transparancy"

    Run-Programs-Pc-dmis for Windows-Setting Editor- Find: DrawPathLinesRadiusInMM change the "value". -Save Settings-Close

    Hope this helps

      CHANGING THE LINES WORKED GREAT - THE CAD DID NOT WORK IN THAT I ALREADY HAVE THIS OPTION UNCHECKED, I THINK WHAT I AM ACTUALLY ASKING FOR IS THAT THE PATH LINES ARE VISIBLE THROUGH THE CAD. THE CAD IS NOT TRANSPARENT, BUT THE PATH LINES CAN BE SEEN THROUGH THE PART. IN 3.5mr2 I COULD RUN 'SHOW PATH LINES' AND THEY WOULD ALL BE THERE BUT I COULD NOT SEE THEM THROUGH THE PART. THE WAY IT IS NOW, I SEE EVERY LINE, CIRCLE, SCAN, ETC. FROM EVERY VIEW AND THE SCREEN BECOMES VERY CONFUSING WITH ALL THE LINES BEING SHOWN. I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THIS TURNED OFF SO THAT ONLY THE LINES VISIBLE ON THE SIDE OF THE CAD YOU ARE LOOKING AT ARE VISIBLE AND THE ONES BEHIND IT ARE HIDDEN UNTIL THE CAD IS ROTATED AROUND.

        UNcheck this if you have it "on"

        viewsetup>show lines over surfaces

        if that isn't the fix then I would have to say the graphic card/pcdmis are choosing what to show with regard to the memory available....just my opinion

          It Was Already Unchecked, But I Tried Checking It And Unchecking It But It Had No Affect On My Path Lines. There Has To Be Another Box Some Where That Is Checked That Needs To Be Unchecked, I Just Need Steered In The Right Direction
          Thanks All For Your Help And If Anyone Else Has Any Suggestions I Will Sure Give Them A Try.
          Is Anyone Else Experiancing This Or Am I The Only One?
