Rhino 6 Graphics Glitch

Hi! I’ve been noticing graphical glitch in Rhino 6.This even happened with curves, now it has gone.
I’m attaching the comparison with Rhino 5.

Hello - can you please run the SystemInfo command in Rhino 6 (Help menu > System information) and paste the results here?


Is your geometry far away from the origin? The meshes look like an old bug where we couldn’t properly draw mesh geometry far from the origin.

Yes the model is far away from origin.

I haven’t heard of other people seeing this recently. If you can send me a model, I’ll see if I can repeat the bug on my computer.

Hi Steve,
I have just encountered the same problem. The mesh created far from origin suffers from inaccuracies… (fe. 3 cm in meter model)
R6, SR 10


Hi Petr, Steve will need to see that file. Did you send it to him?

Hi wim,
not yet. But I think this is known issue, am I right? Anyway, I can send this file to Steve :wink:

Well, Steve did write:

Well then, where can I find Steve’s email? :slight_smile:

Did you solve this problem? Happens to me too and it´s really annoying…

No. I went back to Rhino 5. :wink:

I don’t believe I ever got a sample model that exhibits this behavior. Feel free to send me one and I’ll look into seeing what can be done.

Hi Steve,

I just uploaded the file according to the link in previous comment.
