Subject: Displaying a drawing with a visual style



You can choose from a variety of styles according to your needs. For example, if you’re just starting a new drawing, you might want to view it using a wireframe mode, which looks similar to a model made out of wire and displays faster than more complex visual styles. Then as your drawing advances, you can switch to a more detailed visual style.

The following visual styles are available:

   2D Wireframe — Drawing displays in two dimensions with all lines drawn at the edge of entities.

   Conceptual — Drawing displays in three dimensions with surfaces shaded in con­ceptual colors.

   Hidden — Drawing displays in three dimensions with all lines drawn at the edge of entities except those behind surfaces.

   Realistic — Drawing displays in three dimensions with surfaces filled with assigned materials.

   Shaded — Drawing displays in three dimensions with surfaces shaded.

   Shaded with Edges — Drawing displays in three dimensions with surfaces shaded and lines drawn at the edge of surfaces.

   Shades of Gray — Drawing displays in three dimensions with surfaces shaded in monochromatic shades of gray.

   Sketchy — Drawing displays in two and three dimensions with a freehand sketch effect.

   Wireframe — Drawing displays in three dimensions with all lines drawn at the edge of entities.

   X-ray — Drawing displays in three dimensions with surfaces partially transparent.

The more detail that displays on the screen, the greater the impact on performance.
