Rhino 6 line weight on screen


The line weight on the screen is in Rhino 6 much higher than in Rhino 5. PrintDisplay is both times off, and the line weight in Options … Display Mode is for curves is 1 pixel.

Is there a way to display the lines thinner (like in Rhino 5)?

Hello - use testWirethicknessScale - when you get a setting that looks good set the ‘advanced’ option here:
Options > Advanced > OpenGL.WireThicknessScale



Thank you. But I can’t set thinner lines. I am working with the german version running windows in german. So instead of a point a comma is automatically put in. Is that the problem?

It works now. Apparently OpenGL.WireThicknessScale is set automatically when you change the thickness with testWirethicknessScale.
So thank you!

Thanks, Pascal this works fine on a 4K monitor. Is there a way for the grid lines to not be scaled in lock-step with the model lines? Effect of scaling the drawing lines to be suitably visible is diminished by the same-weight grid lines regardless of line-color settings. Same for dimension and other non-drawing lines.

Hi - no, WireThicknessScale will affect all lines.
You could change the thickness of curves in the display modes to have them stand out from the grid lines.
