Hi Charles, I wasn’t saying that as a reason or an excuse… more just an observation on my part. I’ll see what I can do to resolve this for you… It turns out that a lot of this has to do with the improved display and its features…the stereo mode feature was just not cooperating well with the new design, which is why we made the decision to pull it (temporarily)… And the issues aren’t just hardware related, it’s the entire “stereo” mechanism in general… In order to get any kind of stereo effect, Rhino needs to render two frames, each from a different camera perspective, and then those results are merged into a single image (either by hardware or by software (i.e. anaglyph)… It’s the process of re-drawing the entire scene twice that needs to be looked at and reworked so that things work better in the new architecture. So we didn’t remove something that was working…quite the opposite…we removed it because it was not working and it was deemed that in order to get things working would have pushed schedules back further than we wanted. Sorry if I didn’t make that clear before.
We will get something working in 6.x in terms of stereo support, I just can’t tell you with any certainty when that will be.
Showing the “Stereo View” tab will reveal all of the anaglyph settings along with a list of views within your current layout… Simply CHECKing and UNCHECKing a specific view will enable and/or disable stereo mode for that respective view.
But not completely: The Parallax slider doesn’t do anything in here. The initial setting was 3.3 (if my memory is correct). The slider only changes the numbers, not the view. So I don’t get a good image.
Hmm, now it works as expected.
Don’t know why… no problem.
I like the panel approach.
Far more comfy than set up in a display mode.
I just received my 3D glasses today for stereo viewing in Metashape of my 3D model of a construction site (built from drone photos). Really nice. Then I got to thinking about doing the same thing in Rhino 6 where I process the model. A quick search on the forum popped up this post and, following your directions, I now have it working in Rhino 6. The 3D stereo view really helps in understanding the details of this site. Without stereo, and even with the 3D model rotated around in perspective view, it takes a while to visualize all the levels of the site. But with stereo viewing, the details really pop.

I use a Python script I created for Rhino 6 to edit the model, make measurements (profile lines, 3D area, volume) and create maps (elevation, slope, contours).
The addition of stereo 3D viewing is a great option. I am sure a hardware based version would be even more impressive but I can understand that it is more complicated to implement well in Rhino 6. For now I can get by with this simple method and would be eager to try out a hardware-based version when it becomes available.
