"No print" - line-weight -- Thanks McNeel

Sorry to disturb you, but I wanted to give a “thank you” to McNeel for adding the option to set an object as “non-plottable” through the “line-weight” - properties".

I have no idea how long this had been implemented, I’ve just noticed it and I’m thrilled.

It’s been around for quite awhile, I’d say at least since V3 when Rhino first started to get some printing tools…

What?!
I’d swear that this was one thing that Rhino has lacked for years.
I have no idea how this is possible.
For years I’ve been placing objects that I don’t wanna get printed in separate layers or adding transparent materials.

Well, this is Rhino V5 - so earlier than 2012 at least, probably much earlier - I don’t have any older versions than V5 installed here any more.

“no print” is mentioned on page 8 of this Rhino 4 guide: :slight_smile:

Edit : If I read this correctly it was new in Rhino 4 : https://www.rhino3d.com/download/rhino/4.0/release/changes

Yep, looks like you nailed it…

So that would mean that it was added sometime between 2003 and 2007*.
*assuming it was added some time during the beta phase…

Well… Sorry for being a moron, and I’m sorry for making requests for this - i’m sure I’ve done it a couple of times.

Don’t be sorry, I “discover” stuff all the time that I thought was recently added only to find it’s been in there for quite awhile…
