Lines visible through surfaces in Rendered viewmode

I can’t find the setting to turn this back off. I must have turned this option on by accident.

So all lines (curves, isocurves, surface edges, …) are visible through surfaces. I would like to turn this back off. Thanks in advance!

Is it Xray all wires ,In display settings?

Hi Nosaj

No it isn’t… Good guess though

Does this happen in any file - even a new blank file, draw a box or something? Or is it specific to one file? Do all display modes do this or just one?

Yes it seems to be like this in any file. Only in Rendered display mode. Not in Shaded. (Also in Wireframe mode obviously). I don’t use any other display modes.

Anyone have a clue which setting I should change?

Dank je, Simon -
By default, the Rendered display mode shouldn’t show any wires and the background in that image also looks like a customization. What happens when you, in Rhino Options -> Display Modes select that Rendered display mode from the list on the right and delete it? (You might want to make a copy first if there’s something that you want to keep). When you restart Rhino, that display mode will be recreated with the default settings. Does that change the display?

Hey Wim,

Yes that worked. The newly automatically created Rendered mode is not showing wire through other objects anymore.

The copy of my old Rendered mode is still doing it… Still pretty weird. No idea what could have caused it?

I just compared the new and the copy of the rendered view and I found the problem.

It seems that “Draw locked objects behind all others” Is causing this. Even though the object I was referring to arent locked, it still seems that Rhino is drawing all wires over them?

Hey Simon -

I’ve modified those settings here in Rhino 6 with a similar scene but am not seeing that behavior.

You might try updating the drivers for your NVIDIA Quadro P2000 GPU and/or disconnecting the second monitor to see if that does anything. Beyond that, I’m afraid that display issues in Rhino 6 are no longer attempted fixed.
