Hi
Sorry, that old HD 3000 chip is too old. It will not work for Rhino V6.
The oldest is the next generation Intel HD 4000 and it is still pretty buggy in V6.

It’s time to replace that system.

Ok, i understand. And for Rhino v5?
Thanks for your reply.

Only barely functional for V5. NOT recommended.
We moved to a newer OpenGL specification for V6.

I just want to get familar with Rheno. So mavbe i could start with v5 and change to v6 later.
What do you think about that. A bad idea?
BTW: I have downloaded v5. It seems to work.

For V5, I would recommend running the Options command, expand the View page, and click on the OpenGL page.

Make sure the first option on that page for using accelerated hardware modes is disabled.
Not everything display related (like shadows), will work, but you 'll be able to draw curves and surfaces.
