Rhino 6 display modes don't work


(Inesbolivarrodriguez) #1

I just installed rhino 6 and the different display modes don’t work. When I select Rendered the model dissapears, Ghosted stays the same as Wired…
What can I do to fix it?

Thank you very much

It sounds like you need to update your GPU drivers.
Run the Rhino SystemInfo command and paste the results here.

You should at least update your drivers, they are almost six years old. You should be able to get your updated drivers here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/81499/Intel-HD-Graphics-4000-for-3rd-Generation-Intel-Core-Processors

This should improve your experience. Note though that the Intel HD Graphics 4000 is quite old already. According some information I found (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_graphics_processing_units#Seventh_generation) your card supports up to OpenGL 4.0. I am not sure if that is high enough for full viewport support. @jeff or @stevebaer can probably tell you better what kind of performance you should expect with your card.
