Lagging and Weird Glossy Object

I found the file become super lag suddenly. And the object turn very glossy in shaded mode but I didn’t change any setting. Also, the glass material also turn transparent in shaded mode which is not the default setting I got. Noted that the file is just 450Mb. Any idea?

Hi Jack- I am taking a look - note you have posted your file in a publically accessible link - is that what you intended?
The posted file is missing many many blocks so it may not show the problem - it seems OK here.


Oh yeah I forget those linked block. The problem is fixed now after I turned off my cpu for some time, maybe it is a little bit overwhelming. Thanks

Hi, I actually have a similar issue with Rhino no matter what model I open. I tried restarting my computer and even reinstalling Rhino, without any success.

Hi Cyrille - can you please run the SystemInfo command in Rhino and post the results?

Hi Cyrille - I would get this working correctly first - if that does not do it, we’ll look at the various plug-ins. Make sure your monitor is seeing into the RTX card and not just the Intel gpu.


tried to reply to your message to tech support but it bounced as undeliverable.

feel free to call us at 206-545-6877

see below-
it looks like your graphics card is not working correctly.

3 possibilities-

  1. your graphics card has failed and the hardware died.

  2. your graphics driver in incorrectly installed and needs to be replaced with a clean install.

  3. your graphics card driver settings are non typical and are allowing the intel card to take over.
