Question about background image in PEN


#1

Where is Rhino’s ‘library’? I’ve rooted around and can’t find it anywhere. Currently I’m looking for the background image used in the PEN style (so I can use it in the X Ray style) but I’d also like to know where Materials, etc. are stored. I’m sure it’s obvious but I can’t see it.

Thanks.

Render materials (Rhino render) are stored here:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\McNeel\Rhinoceros\5.0\Localization\<language>\Render Content

As to the background for Pen, that is hard coded, so I don’t know if it’s accessible anywhere - the idea is that you’re not supposed to be able to modify it… I looked in the registry and even there there is no path to that image file, so I assume that it’s actually coded into the Rhino.exe itself…

I made those from 2D scans but I’m not finding the original files. It’s easy to get the background as a separate image though. use ‘-ViewCaptueToFile’ with nothing visible. Here’s a 2K version for you to use.
