Problem with PDF output and Image Output

Hi McNeel , I am using Rhino 6 SR20((6.20.19322.20361, 11/18/2019))(Refer image 0 for rhino version)

,Since 2 weeks I’m facing 2 problems with rhino 6
Problem 1: Rhino layout PDF - i’m having problem with layout printing, my detail viewport not matching with my lines and annotation after taking PDF. It will show fine in rhino and print preview, but the PDF results in above mentioned problem( refer image 01-05)

Problem 2: Rhino ViewCapture with Clipping plane- clipping plane edge line doesn’t match with geometry . (Refer image no 6 )

I dont know why this is happening in latest version of rhino 6 ,these are the ways of presentation if not working nobody can present any thing using Rhino
please help me out of this problem as soon as possible

Hi Ranjit -

As you can see in pictures detail view port and view is slightly shifted I analyzed the shifting position
it is shifting

  1. aprox -3.038 on x direction
  2. Aprox. +3.882 on y direction
    when i am shifting Detail View-port ,my layouts print is coming at exact position of boundaries
    Is there any displacement setting for rhino view port so that i can make it correct
    i hope this study will help you find me a solution
    Regards ,

Hi Ranjit - are your objects far from the world origin? Can you post a small file that shows the problem, or send to (if confidential)
Please include a link back to this conversation in your comments.


Hi pascal,

i hope this will let you know the problem .

Hi Pascal,
For the above Issue I found solution that when ground plane is turned on then this issue is happening . If we turn off ground plane images are neat and actual .

Image with Ground plane On

Image with Ground Plane off.

But it should go with ground plane as well.
Also if possible there must be option for clip selected geometries.
