Unwanted lines on Stair Stringers in Hidden Line Render

Recommended Posts

Please see attached image to see unwanted lines that appear on stair stringers in hidden line render. Is there a way to use Hidden Line without getting these lines?

 

Thanks. Happy new year!

You could try to play with the cease angle of HL mode.

(Increase it)

 

But I fear that may not likely help.

a) the real geometry generated by the Stair Tool is often horribly

b) with later VW versions I also see often unwanted triangulations

in HL mode, at various surfaces e.g. containing holes.

Oh, yes; changing the crease angle did remove the lines. Thank you!

I agree that the stair geometry is often unacceptable. I often use the stair tool to model the treads only; then model stringers and railing manually.

They all disappeared except the one where the stringer joins the landing framing. In this case that's good enough that I won't bother modeling it from scratch.

 

Thanks again.
