Black viewports


Downloaded rhino 6

The windows (view ports ) are all black … how do I see what’s going on ?

First thing to do is try updating your video drivers…

You can also run the command SystemInfo inside Rhino and post the results here.

Looks like the driver date is from 2010… I don’t see the actual graphics adapter type. Would try updating in any case. Old Intel integrated graphics cards/drivers are not well or not at all supported in V6, so even after updating, I don’t know how well it will work.

Updating he drivers worked
