AutoCAD Inventor :: Shaded With Edges Always On?

Jun 5, 2012

How can you set by default the ''shades with edges'' visual style by default ? I always work with that visual style, I have to set it every time I open a part or assembly.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Shaded With Hidden Edges

Jun 20, 2013

We just switched from 2013 to 2014. I had "Shaded with Hidden Edges hotkeys to "q" in 2013,but now it's not in the

Customize menu anymore?  "Shaded with Edges," is there, and my filter is set to all.  I would like to have my hotkey back.

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 :: 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 :: Shaded View In IDW

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 :: 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 :: 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 :: 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 :: Display Tangent Edges

Aug 29, 2012

I am still making some adjustments to our standard drawing template and I ran into another issue.. 

I want the tangent edges to be displayed automatically when I insert a drawing view rather than clicking the Display Options tab and checking the Tangent Edges box every time I make a new drawing.  Is this possible?  If so, how?

I tried inserting a view, checking the Tangent Edges box, then deleting my view and re-saving the template but it still went back to the default.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Project Cut Edges Error

Jul 9, 2012

I found a weird thing with the command 'Project Cut Edges'. I'll explain what I did. I made a new part and added a derived part. This derived part consists of 2 beams (see top left picture in attachment) (these beams are NOT Content Center parts, but I drew the beams myself, so it would be the same if I drew just rectangles as beams). The beams are at a specified distance of each other (see top right picture in attachment). I added a sketch on the YZ Plane and clicked on 'Project Cut Edges' (see bottom left picture in attachment). I added a rectangle and extruded the rectangle. But if I click on the 'Project Cut Edges' item in the browser under Sketch (or I open the Sketch), not all the lines are there anymore. And if I make the distance between the beams smaller, the lines get shorter too (and vice versa).

AutoCAD Inventor :: Yellow Surface Edges

May 17, 2013

We just upgraded Inventor from 2013 to 2014.

I opened a model generated in previous releases and noticed that there were parts with a strange yellow highlight. 

Turns out the parts aren't explicitly highlighted, it's just that their edges are yellow. See the screenshot below.

I usually work in the 'Shaded with Edges' view style. I found that if the view style is changed to 'Shaded' or 'Realistic', the yellow disappears with the edges.

The only parts the yellow edges seem to affect are ones generated as surfaces. I would like to know how to turn the yellow off is possible. So far I've tried changing the part appearance in the toolbar and changing the surface body properties in the model tree; neither method worked.

Now I don't model in surfaces, but there have been purchased parts imported into Inventor that have in the past ended up as surfaces, and it's these parts that have the highlight. I haven't noticed anything like this in previous releases.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Tangent Edges In Drawing

Oct 8, 2013

Looking at a side profile of a channel in a drawing, you will usually see a top and bottom edge, as well as some nominal flange thickness.

In Inventor, all you see is the top and bottom edge...because the channel's shape is really radiused on the flange.

So I turn on "Tangent Edges" in the Display Options of my I see three lines representing the flange. I can manually hide the other lines, but this option creates a TON of lines in my views that I would have to manually hide.

What is the quickest and cleanest way to represent a channel without seeing a ton of extra tangent lines?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Part Edges Not Showing In IDW

Aug 9, 2012

I have a part that refuses to display properly in orthographic drawing views.  The image below shows how it renders in a drawing.  The drawing view to the left is the problematic one, the iso view to the right is just to show what the part actually looks like.

when the drawing view is updating (with the green brackets around it), the lines show just fine (see below).  But they disappear as soon as the drawing is fully updated.

I have attached the offensive part and the drawing shown in the images. I tried turning on tangent edges and interference edges, but no luck.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Why Project Cut Edges Command Greyed Out

Oct 3, 2012

why after creating a new sketch I don't have the ability to use "Project Cut Edges" I am following a model from U-Tube called "LED LAMP". Time stamp 1hour 46 mins . I first Isolated the "Handle" I am creating in my assembly. I am creating a sketch on XY Plane. Then slice graphics. So I can Project Cut Edges on to my model. It is greyed out so it is not available. If I open the part file on its own the command is available to use, but not in my assembly.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Dome Solid Without Hard Edges

Mar 14, 2013

I need to create several domed solids (as different parts) based on 2D sketches of various shapes.  I am trying to emulate domes that you might creating by pouring thick resin.

Using this forum I have found that you can do this easily using Loft to-point, then use the Conditions tab to get the dome height/shape set nicely.

The only problem is when the 2D shapes have a corner that is too sharp - then it leaves ridges on the domes - like the arrows show on this example - which is based on a simple rectangle with 0.5m radius corners:

I found one thread on this forum that said to use Delete-Face, then Patch - but the I couldn't get the patch to leave nice smoothed edges - and without bulging.
