render polygons not shaded

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have tried to explain my problem before, but still have no solution for this: I am drawing a cove construction with curved surface, when I choose for render polygon, a number of renderlines appear. And that is not what I want. I just want to see the outside lines and fill color. I have put the 3D conversion already to 'low' but still about 20 lines appear on this curved surface. Anyone an idea?

VW + RW 10.5 win

leave the 3D conversion as high as usable screen redraw will allow (at least that's what I do).

What you want is

Preferences> Document preferences>Line render> Smoothing angle.

set to about 20? and see what happens

The smoothing angle only affects hidden line, dashed hidden line, and final shaded polygon rendering, so you'll need to use one of those modes to eliminate the facet lines.
