  • Anyone ever used this?

    "Percentage of remaining objects to draw."

    You have the option of 100, 50, 20, 10 percent.
    I'm asking because not only do I not see any true use for it but also because it seems like such a waste of time and effort.
    Time and effort for both those that build PC-DMIS, and for a programer.

    If you do use it, please tell me more. Am I missing something?

    Thank you all for your answers.

    I have this set at 50%. It hides the CAD while rotating it. Speeds up movement of the CAD model on the big ones.

      It helps with really detailed CAD assemblies.... they can sometimes take what seems like forever to rotate.
      Lately, it occurs to me
      What a long, strange trip it's been.

        Really, I have some good size files "88,179kb" and have not had any problems to speak of. Are you displaying more than just the probe tip i.e. (Extentions, TP20, PH10...) along with your part CAD?

          I have my set at 10%. My files are typically around 150mb. All it does is draw fewer surfaces while you have the mouse button depressed when spinning the model around. Less work for the computer means things happen on the screen faster. Once you let go of the mouse button everything redraws regardless of how you have the option set.
