Intergraph Smart 3D
10.1 (2014 R1)

Sets options for applying the three-dimensional perspective, render mode, and depth fading to one or more of the listed aspects. The Preview window graphically displays your selections, and the Description box lists the selections in a textual format.

Projection Mode

Specifies how close and at what angle objects appear in the workspace. The options available are as follows:

  • Orthographic - Select this option if you want the display to use a parallel projection.

  • Perspective - Select this option if you want the display to include a vanishing point.

Render Mode

Provides options for determining the physical appearance of three-dimensional objects in the workspace.

  • Outline - Displays objects with edges that appear as a single line and the surfaces appear solid. Edge lines and faces that are not within normal view are hidden. This setting provides a fast and simple way to review spacing relationships between objects. Because this view involves hidden lines, the display is less cluttered.

  • Smooth Shaded - Displays objects in a solid format with smooth shaded surfaces.

  • Shaded with Enhanced Edges - Displays objects the same as the Smooth Shaded option but with a dark line emphasizing the edges of the objects.

  • Shaded with Hardware Enhanced Edges - Provides a faster solution for displaying enhanced edges. This option is an alternate display option to Shaded with Enhanced Edges in that it uses the software running on your system's video card.

     This option may not be supported by your graphics driver and/or graphics card. Smart 3D checks your system information and does not display this option if it is not supported. Loading a new graphics driver could make this option available.
