Issues with visibility

Hello everybody,
I have used Rhino fpór quite some time already, but I never have had such a problem, which is why I hope somebody can help me here. For some reason I cant see anything I am doing in any viewport. I can create objects, lines, curves etc., but they dont appear in the viewport, until I zoom so close that it is impossible to further work with them. If I get so close, everything new I make is invisible again, so zooming in that close doesn’t help either way. Zoomed out, though invisible in the viewport, I can still select and delete everything. I haven’t made any changes to the settings (default settings), nor has my system changed. If anybody could help me, I would be very glad.

Hi Carl - most likely, an object has been created in outer space. If you cannot see anything at all, then it may be hard to locate - I would try turning of layers and then running 4view ZEA until something shows, most likely the object will be on the last turned off layer.
If you cannot sort it out, please send the model to , to my attention, with a link back here in your comments.


Thanks for the quick reply!
Unfortionatly it is a completley new file with nothing in it, where I have first noticed the problem.
Though I did just notice, that if I zoom in far enough, everything remains visible. Is there mybe a setting for viewport view distance or something simular?

Hi Carl - try this - File > New and choose No Template (just to eliminate that possibility - a messed template file) If that does the same thing, check the display mode in Options > View > Display modes, and with wireframe or shaded or whatever you are using selected hit Restore Defaults. If that does not sort it out, please run SystemInfo in Rhino and copy/paste the output here.


Unfortionatly that did not do the trick, so help yourself, I guess.
And thank you for your help!

Hi Carl - in Options > View > OpenGL page, try moving the slider to the left one notch or two - if that does not fix it, un-check GPU Tessellation.


Moving the slider down two notches did the trick.
Thank you ever so much!
