Rhino 6 display problems - objects disappear in some viewports

unhandled

#1

Please checkout the video below (all viewports are in wireframe mode). this isn’t the first tie it’s happening. I’m using Rhino 6 Trial.
I also attached the file. Closing and opening the program doesn’t fix it.

Another problem I’m getting is sometimes when i click the arrow next to the viewport name in order to get the drop-down menu, it automatically chooses another display mode. Anyone else getting this?

Thanks a lot!

Hi @zoster,

When did you last time update your graphics drivers? I strongly suggest you get the latest ones from http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx.

When they are installed and you have rebooted your computer, could you see if the problem is fixed?

Possibly a good idea to ensure you do a clean driver install, i.e. removing all traces of old Nvidia drivers.

thank you, i’ll try updating the drivers and get back to You.

in the meantime this is what happend o a friends computer (Rhino 6 trial as well)

I’d say your friend could use an update as well! Start with that, and then let’s take it from there.

My friends problem got resolved with a driver update, mine didn’t, and I tried both versions:

Optimal Driver for Enterprise (ODE) Most users select this choice for optimal stability and performance. It also offers ISV certification and long lifecycle support
Quadro New Feature Driver (QNF) Users occasionally select this choice for bug fixes, new features, new VR headset support or new Game Engine support. Support duration is shorter than ODE

What else could I try?
Thank you!

LATER EDIT:
Actually my friends problem got just partially resolved: meaning the viewports don’t turn black anymore, but it only shows geometry in wireframe, it can’t show surfaces in either Grasshopper nor Rhino.

I think the HD 4500 won’t be able to drive Rhino 6 properly. My HD 8500M also has trouble, and probably will never succeed :confused:


#10

he tried Rhino 5 and works fine. So that may be it.
