I wanted to print a viewport that I have in Ghosted mode to show a subcontractor my design for a machining quote. I wanted to do it this way so I can clearly show how various parts fit together at this point of the construction of the project. Since the parts have no materials attached to them yet I did not want to print a render because that is just all dull grey. Additionally rendering does not show parts in Ghosted mode.
The print dialog box looked like this,
so I expected that the print would look like this.
It did not. The print came out with very weird colors all over the place. I thought that the issue was with my printer at first, but when I looked at the print by “Open PDF in Preview” I saw this:
This is exactly what my first print looked like.
The only way it seems I can print my viewport as I want is by changing the viewport background color to white in Rhino Preferences, do a screen capture (that is how I got the second image above), import the file into Illustrator, size the image and then print.
I wonder if this is a bug or if I am doing something wrong.
