Turn off Textures in ArcticWithOutlines

Hi all, is there a way to turn of textures in ArcticwithOutlines mode ?

What is ArcticWithOutlines? A custom display mode you created?

The base Arctic display mode already has all textures disabled, so if you have created your own display mode based on that you maybe should recreate that display mode and make only the changes necessary to get what you are after. Outlines - what are these in your case?

Hi Nathan.
Opps, yes, it is a custom display mode.
But … I get the same result with the standard Arctic mode.

I know I could just remove the logos, but I am about to texture the whole lot.

Are you sure you haven’t changed the Arctic mode settings? Best is to check via Tools > Options > View > Diplay Modes

If Arctic shows blue settings have been changed. Use the Restore defaults button to get clean Arctic settings.

Nope, still the same. I even restarted Rhino to be sure.

Check the objects in question - they might have a custom display mode set per object. Select them and run _SetObjectDisplayMode and then choose _UseView. Better?

Actually, none of the display modes are working properly :slight_smile:
Wireframe looks shaded etc.
I suspect a bigger problem :slight_smile:
I have been using Enscape all day.

OK, maybe temporarily disable Enscape, restart Rhino and see if that fixes it.

I reinstalled the Nvidia drivers, the different display modes behave properly now, but the textures still appear in every mode.
Am I missing something obvious here ?

I’m going to guess you need to post a part of the file that shows the problem for someone to test… If you can’t post it maybe send it in to tech support.

Will do,
Thanks for your help,

Hi @Mike_A
Were they, by chance, brought in with the Picture command? If yes, you need to excange the material with at custom material (with the picture as a bitmap texture). The picture material is meant to override viewport and obejct display modes, I think.

Hi Jakob…
Yes ! You are right. I assumed ALL textures would behave the same.
Can the Picture material be turned off in object display modes ?

You can change the type of the picture material to Physically Based material.

Hi Nathan,
Sorry for the slow reply,
That didnt help either.

If you can share one or two of the objects that misbehave we can investigate… select them, then use export as to export to a new rhino file, then share that.
