Raster Printing Problem


I’m using Rhino 6 and every time I try to get Raster Print the result coming out strange. It does not event take my window area however, there is no problem with vector output.

In the attachment, you can find the window area that I’m choosing, what raster comes out and the end result.

Please run the SystemInfo command and post the results.
That may have a clue to help figure this out.

The first thing I’d do is to update the display drivers.
Your’s are quite old.
If it’s a desktop computer, get them from NVIDIA:

If it’s a laptop, get them from the laptop maker.

Any better?

I updated my display drivers, I still have the same problems

If you print to a different device does it have the same problem?
I can’t tell yet if the problem is related to the printer driver, the file itself, or something else.

We need your help to narrow down the possibilities.

It looks like a raster print tiling issue. Does this happen with any file or with this specific file?

It happens with any file

Yes even if I change the devices it still has the same problem

Please disable the VRay plug-in in Rhino’s plug-in manager and restart Rhino. Then try printing again. Let’s make sure that this isn’t a bug in a 3rd party plug-in.

I disabled Vray plug-in. Now, when I try to print I’m getting only empty black page

Did you restart Rhino after disabling VRay? That makes a difference. I also just noticed that you have RhinoResurf_r6 installed too; you should also try disabling that plug-in for testing.

Do you also get black images when you try to print extents instead of window?
Do you get a black image if you run ViewCaptureToFile? ViewCaptureToFile is very similar to raster printing in the code.

Yes, I’ve applied your suggestions results are still the same. Before that I was not even able to get ViewCaptureToFile image, now that one is working at least.
