Clipping planes and M4000

I have a problem with object visibility when i use clipping planes.
In wireframe views no curves or edges (wires) are visible inside within the cut area when the clipping plane are active. In shaded view the shade are visible but not the edges or curves.
If i change the “display pipeline assignment” in display options to windows instead of openGL the curves and edges appears. This is not possible in shaded view…
This only happens in my system with a quadro M4000 GPU so I suspect thats the problem.
I have tried to uninstall and install the latest driver without any success.
Anyone have a idea?

Hi - please run the Rhino SystemInfo command and post the result here.

Anyone? Wim?

Hi - I’m not seeing anything wrong in that system information.
I see from the screenshot that you have a modified Shaded display mode (and can’t tell which modifications are done to the Wireframe mode) - does it change anything if you reset the display modes to their factory-default settings?

Hi Wim
Yes I tried to reset to default display modes with no success but when I change the display pipeline assignment to windows instead of openGL (which I guess is the GPU) it works.(but windows cant handle bigger files)

Hi - could you please upload that simple 3dm file and export and upload your Wireframe and Shaded modes that you use to reproduce that behavior.

Sorry @wim I missed your request, I upload the files;
