Change the rendering of parts and components

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
    Parts wireframe / Components wireframe

    Object outlines are displayed, surfaces are not. Objects are transparent.

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

    Parts shaded wireframe / Components shaded wireframe

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

    If you use the DirectX rendering and have set XS_HATCH_OVERLAPPING_FACES_IN_DX to TRUE , the overlapping surfaces are visualized in rendered wireframe views.

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

    In this DirectX rendering example, the overlapping surfaces are visualized.

    Parts grayscale / Components grayscale

    Objects are shown in grayscale.

    If you use the DirectX rendering and have set XS_HATCH_OVERLAPPING_FACES_IN_DX to TRUE , the overlapping surfaces are visualized in grayscale views.

    In this DirectX rendering example, the overlapping surfaces are visualized.

    Parts rendered / Components rendered

    Object surfaces are displayed. Objects are not transparent.

    If you use the DirectX rendering and have set XS_HATCH_OVERLAPPING_FACES_IN_DX to TRUE , the overlapping surfaces are visualized with a hatch.

    In this DirectX rendering example, the overlapping surfaces are visualized with a hatch.

    Show only selected part / Show only selected component

    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.
