Artifacts on display

I am getting lots of artifacts on all displays in all render modes.
They disappear when i zoom in.
I cannot select them.

Hi @JasonP,

Are you using this week’s WIP? Please paste the version number here by going to Help -> System Information. The information looks something like this:

Could you also post a screen shot showing the bug? If you have a scene which reproduces the problem, could you attach it to this thread?


I didn’t realise you could attach pictures by dragging.

Interesting. Does this only happen with this file? If not, then it would be helpful to know how to reproduce this.

If this is the only file with this behavior we would need to get our hands on the 3dm file. You can upload it here, or if you don’t want to post it publicly you can upload it via this page

Please write my e-mail into the recipient field (I’ll send it as a PM).


No,It happens with other files,They are rhino 5 files that i have moved to the WIP and have imports from the horror software that is vectorworks.
I exported the VW files to Rhino 3dm.

Uploading file now.

Oops, i sent it to the tech email.

@JasonP I got the file.

I have created a bug report for it.

As a temporary workaround, type the command name TestGlTessellationShader and change Enabled to Off. This will make rendering slower, unfortunately but it will get rid of the artifacts.
