The jungle where all Rhino animals live
Ive recently bought a new laptop the lenovo x220 tablet [x220t] and installed windows 8 and rhino5 90d evaluation on it to check out the laptop for rhino.
The modelling works quite good and although the laptop has on processor graphics HD3000 it renders quite complex geometries.
The bad news however is the display of the textures:
the crystal clear images are extremely simplified and display in a very low quality.
Does anyone know how to solve this problem?
its always nice if you can give the answer on questions you had in the past by yourself. For not getting issues with textures you should be sure that opengl is enabled in the appearence settings and that the maximum texture size is not bigger than what you videocard can handle. In my case it was 1024x1024 pixels and it will probably be that the restrictions are a multiple number of that
It used to be a common problem for users of windows 8 icw HD3000 graphics. Now intel released the latest beta drivers you can even use accelerated hardware and use textures with a 8192x8192px textures. not bad for i5 video graphics...
The only thing is that rendered shadows don't work yet not a big problem but if anyone knows how to solve this problem the solution is welcome..
Glad you figured the OpenGL issues out.
I'm a little curious about how well Rhino works with a touch interface, and would love to hear about your experience with the same.
Thanks in advance!
Well you have the possibility to use touch imput to select objects and rhino recognized the multitouch input to zoom. The icons in your menubar are big enough to select and even the smaller layer icons can be operated with your fingers which is quite amazing.
However rhino doesnt seem to support two finger swipes as pan and two finger rotations.
I can imagine that the touch interface can be useful for a programme as grasshopper.
Furthermore could the pen of the x...t pc's be considered as a mayor + when you like to experiment with the sketch function in rhino.
