AutoCAD Inventor :: Shaded View In IDW

Jan 10, 2013

When shading in an Inventor 2013 idw the display shows the shade incorrectly as some kind of sky representation (see attached). I wish for this to be displayed correctly as a grayscale shade?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Lighting Shaded View

Oct 31, 2007

when you have an view in shaded mode, there is automatically some lighting from the rightside. This gives the model/view some shadow look ( white turns into light gray by example).

The lightning style in the assembly/part environment has no influence on the shaded view.

AutoCAD Inventor :: 2014 Shaded View IDW Prints As Line Drawing

Oct 30, 2013

We just recently upgraded to Inventor Pro 2014.  I have a user who has created a singled shaded view drawing.  He want to print the drawing shaded.  When he prints he gets a line drawing.  It even appears like a line drawing when he previews it.  He gets the same results when printing to Adobe.  He said it printed properly in the morning yesterday and when he tried to print again in the afternoon it would not print shaded.  He rebooted this morning and he still can't print a shaded drawing from Inventor.  We looked at his printer settings and everything looks good.  He is the only one in my department who is having this problem.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Shaded With Edges (not Hidden)

Apr 23, 2013

Inventor 2014,

I am getting display of hidden edges (in fuzzy grey with shadows, like wireframe with hidden edges) while using shaded with Edges.  At first they don't display, but when I pan zoom orbit, they show up to stay.  When I switch to shaded with hidded edges, the same edges turn blue.  When I switch to shaded, they completely disappear.  So it's the Shaded with edges view that has this problem.  I have also noticed it to be random files or some unknown commonality.  Files were created using Inventor 2013.  I'm not running Express mode, which is much fuzzier.

I did not see this during beta testing.  I have a Radeon HD 5990 (2GB) - running like a champ, Intel I7- 930, and 12GB ram running Windows 7 (ultimate) 64bit.  Inventor 2013, and 2014 are both installed.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Lighting Styles For Shaded Views In IDW

Apr 30, 2012

I've been working with a model where some of it is in a dark shadow when I make a shaded view on the drawing.  I've created a custom lighting style in the style manager, but I haven't found any way to succesfully assign that lighting style to the model in a way that will light the shaded views in my drawing.  I'm using Inventor Pro 2011.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Controlling Lighting Direction For Shaded Views

Oct 27, 2011

I've been running into issues in IV 2010 with the shading where I need to show a part in a perspective view on my IDWs and depending on the angle I rotate to the majority of the part is shown in shadow. It's frustrating because I need to show a feature in that particular orientation, but the whole part looks dark.

Especially when I am showing left and right mirrored parts. One side always seems to end up dark. FYI I almost never show the material as a texture map in my part drawings so I use white as the color default because I am simply trying to get across the shape of the part in a shaded 3D view. These don't really serve as renderings to me per say. Is there any way to control the light source direction for custom views in terms of shading? Could I make it more of an ambient light or similar to the Global Light Style in Inventor Studio.

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Disable Reflections And Gradients In Shaded Views

Sep 14, 2010

You would like to have an option to disable reflections in the shaded views that you create.

We introduced from Inventor 2010 support for disabling reflections in drawings. In order to do this, users need to add DWORD registry key named "Suppress Specular Color" with value greater than zero under the following registry key.


Prior to creating this registry key, you need to have the following hotfix installed for Inventor 2010:


For Inventor 2011, you need to have SP1 installed.
Open the system registry and locate the following registry keys listed below (Start > Run > RegEdit):

1. Inventor 2010


Create a key with this value:

"Suppress Specular Color"=dword:00000001

2. Inventor 2011


Create a key with this value:

"Suppress Specular Color"=dword:00000001

If the key is not present or its value is zero or less, then reflections are enabled under drawings (Default behavior).

Note: The key is read only once per Inventor session -  after adding the key or changing its value,  users need to restart the Inventor session.

AutoCAD Inventor :: White Streaks When Plotting Shaded Models

Jul 16, 2013

I believe this issue started when I upgraded to Inventor Professional 2014.  When I print idw files with shaded models on my HP Designjet 500 plotter I get white streaks in the shaded model.  I never had this issue with the 2013 version of Inventor.  If I export the same idw file to a pdf then print the pdf file there is no streaking and the printed drawing is okay.  Thinking it was a Designjet issue I spent a couple days on HP's discussion group to find a solution but now it looks like a software issue.

AutoCAD Inventor :: 2013 - Realistic Versus Shaded With Edges

Jul 25, 2012

How do I get my part to be transparent in the "Realistic" view like it is with the"Shaded with edges"?  This is what it looks like with the view style set to "Shaded with Edges".  Notice how it is transparent and you can see thru the part.

Now when I switch to "Realistic", I get this.  Anything that is behind this part is not visible.

I want to be able to see thru the part when in the reallistic visual style.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Render Shaded Or Translucent Object With Painted Surfaces?

Nov 6, 2012

I have an interesting question here - How should I try to shaded render this syringe so that a plunger can be seen underneath the translucent body? I need to have the gradiations and labels of the millileters be plainly black.


is there a way to keep those gradations black while rendering an illustration and have the plunger visible beneath the body?

The gradiations are cut into the body of the syringe in this model, and the surfaces of the gradiations are changed to black.

Have been adjusting the color styles - but perhaps I'm missing something. Making the material translucent just fades the gradiations on the syringe, I'd like.

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Pass Break From Sectioned View To Separate Isometric View

Jun 27, 2012

I started with a Left side view of a part and created a sectioned view right down the middle so you can see the insides from another view. the part is pretty big so i used a Break to shorten it to fit the page. I also placed a smaller and separate isometric view of the same part and want this view to inherit the same break. How can I do this? If I go into the display options of the iso view, all the cut inheritance options are grayed out and can't be clicked. I've seen this done before, but i'm sure i missed a step somewhere.

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Make Section View As Isometric View

Oct 29, 2013

I have a long shaft with parts mounted on. i want to section it and show the parts. i don't need to show the whole length of the shaft.

I know i can crop the isometric view, but this way i will not see the key hole which is on the other side, it's hidden.

If i make a section it 's in an orthogonal view only.

I want to make the section view, but later to transform the sectioned view to an isometry. is it possible?
