Hidden Line issues - circles as octagons.

Question

Hello all,

 

Hope this message finds you in good health most importantly. 

 

Really struggling today with a project where I have geometry rendering correctly in open GL but will not render correctly in hidden Line. Had a quick look through the forum and could not see this as an issue. 

 

Please see attached screen shots.

 

The Open GL shows an extruded circle  drawn onto some 3d geometry.  When I render to sheet and set to hidden line I get an Octogon - rather than a circle. I've cut and pasted the geometry into a new file - same result. I've re-drawn the offending item several times - same result. New file, same result etc.,

 

The view port is set to High - but medium and low make no difference. the sheet dpi is currently 300 (up from the standard and again no change) 

 

Anyone had anything similar happen and and suggestions how to over come (i'm about to revert to doing 2d elevations and sections)

 

many thanks all

Check that in Vectorworks Preferences you have 2D conversion Resolution set to High (edit Tab) and 3D conversion resolution also set to High (3D Tab)

I can confirm that both are set to high. I've also changed between 'Good performance and compatibility' , 'best performance' etc. 

Thanks Markdd

OK

 

In Advanced Section Properties for the Section Viewport, make sure you have 3D Conversion resolution turned to High. That should do it.
