I am trying to use Rhino 7 to draw 3D math/physics schematics to be used in a paper; however, I am having a lot of trouble actually getting a high-quality image file out. I have scoured the internet on the different ways to do this but have mostly been unsuccessful. My main problem is that when using “ViewCaptureToFile,” the line widths and points in my drawing change significantly based on the resolution I choose. Using the viewport resolution gives me an image that has accurate line widths and point sizes but the overall quality is too low to be used in a paper. Thus, when I try to scale up the resolution, the image quality obviously goes up; however, the line and point sizes decrease proportionally with the resolution.
For example, the following export is at the standard viewport resolution. The lines and points are the correct size, yet the resolution is too low.
On the other hand, the following image is the same figure but with the resolution scaled up by a factor of 3. The resolution of this export is right about where I need it to be, but the lines and points have shrunken way too small.
I would like to know if there is any way around this issue other than having to manually increase the sizes of each object each time I want a different export resolution. I also am wondering if maybe I am not taking the right approach for developing figures for a paper. I would greatly appreciate any help with my issue and/or any suggestions anyone might have regarding my overall workflow.
Thanks so much for your time!
