Ray tracing with edges


I try to superimpose edges to rendering in raytracing display mode but I dont’ find .
When i tick surface edge in raytracing mode i see all the edge behind the solids like transparent mode.

bug rhino

When I use render display mode its works but i don’t see glass reflexion and shadow quality is better in ray tracing display mode.

Also i don’t no if its possible to modify textures saturation for one detailed view with raytracing or render mode.

Please run the Rhino command _SystemInfo and post the result in a reply.

I try with simple volume, and a visual arq wall, its work for volume (just note for sphere). But don’t work for visual arq wall

Ah, this is an issue with Visual Arq. I don’t know how they are setting up the materials and geometry exactly, but to me it looks like it isn’t done entirely correctly. I’m changing category to VisualARQ

Hi @Henry_Boutet_de_Monv,

I see the problem. I’ll report it to find a solution; we’ll keep you posted.

Ok thanks

Hello Alfonso,

Have you find a solution ?


Hi @Henry_Boutet_de_Monv I think this works fine in Rhino 8. Have you tried it?
