Change the rendering of parts and components

You can easily change the renderingprocess of making the model object faces visible

The rendered model object faces can be transparent or non-transparent

of parts and components in model views.

  1. On the View tab, click Rendering.
  2. Select one of the rendering options for parts or components:
    Option Description Example
    Wireframe Object outlines are displayed, surfaces are not. Objects are transparent.

    In this wireframe example, component objects are displayed as rendered.

    Rendered wireframe Object outlines are displayed. Objects are transparent, and their surfaces are rendered.

    In this rendered wireframe example, component objects are displayed as rendered.

    Grayscale Objects are shown in grayscale.
    Rendered Object surfaces are displayed. Objects are not transparent.
    Show only selected Selected objects are displayed. Other objects are almost completely transparent.

    This option is useful, for example, when viewing clash check results in a large model.

Tip:

Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+1...5 for parts and Shift+1...5 for components to switch between the rendering options.
