I don’t know if this is a problem with V6 or with my dying laptop.
V6 looks like this:
If I uncheck “use accelerated hardware” problem goes away. Weird thing also is that it says that I have Intel HD graphics 4000, when I have a Quadro something something on this computer ((Dell M4700 laptop).
Any ideas? V5 also shows same video card info but accelerated mode works well (good performace and no solid black)
THe WIP will run on systems with the Intel HD 4000 or (newer), provided it is running current display drivers.
It won’t be fast but it will work.
Report any glitches you can repeat.
The display tools are still under active development and the Intel chips are particularly difficult to support.
You have several problems to solve.
1 - Your computer isn’t letting Rhino use your nVIdia card. That could be because your Control Panel Power settings are set to Balanced or Battery Saver. Make sure High Performance.
2 - Rhino’s OpenGL Options page should be reporting the nVidia card.
If it still isn’t after the driver update, check back with the computer maker for other updates for the system BIOS ,etc.
Thank you for the answer. Number 1 solves the problem with nVidia. This is weird though as everything worked well on v5 even in balanced mode.
It is still completely dead black on Intel HD4000 though. Changing to rendered crashes Rhino. In v5 the same model works like a charm on HD4000 even in balanced mode.
Please note that I consciously manually changed graphic chipset to intel - mainly for testing, but also because I sometimes use the laptop on battery and it saves energy.
