Display Bug | Block ByParent Print Color | PrintDisplay On

@fsalla @stevebaer

Hi Francesc, Steve,

in display mode Shaded and Hidden PrintDisplay is messy.

File setup: Objects inside the block are set to ByParent, they are placed on Layer 1. The block instance is placed on Layer 2. PrintDisplay is on. The objects should all be displayed with the print color of Layer 2.

For Hidden: Hidden displays curves with the print color of Layer 2 and Breps with the print color of Layer 1. Please see videos and file attached.

For Shaded: Surfaces seem to be displayed by display color, blocks by print color.

Thanks for looking into this.

Hi @silvano,

Good news: this Hidden display mode issue is already fixed in VisualARQ 2.11, which we released in less than 2 weeks. It was already reported by another user some weeks ago. If you want, I can send you a PM with the installer for the latest build:

Regarding the Shaded display mode, the shaded part of the surface inside the block should be drawn using the display color, as print color is only used on lines/edges. It seems this is a Rhino bug.



@enric , great news. Yes, I would be very interested in a PM with the 2.11 installer. Thanks!
