tutorial 1

I follow tutorial 1 step by step instruction and found out that the workplane along with the construction lines keeps on disappearing from the viewport everytime I run the cursor across the viewport. Does not seem normal ? because of this, I have trouble selecting an intersection point because nothing is visible on my viewport. Appreciate any help to solve this problem. Yman

RE: tutorial 1

Can you give us some details on your graphics card and driver? Thanks! Claus

Re: tutorial 1

hello Claus, My laptop has Vista Home premium with Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950. is this the info you are looking for? if not, could you tell me how i can get the correct info for you. I checked on my Window Update, there is no update from Intel on the above. thanks Yman

Re: tutorial 1

OK, this graphics configuration is known to produce flaky results in conjunction with CoCreate Modeling and CoCreate Modeling PE. See the following discussions: <ul> <li> http://apps.cocreate.com/OneSpaceModelingPE/Secure/Forum/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=369 <li> http://apps.cocreate.com/OneSpaceModelingPE/Secure/Forum/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=362 <li> http://cocreateusers.org/forum/showthread.php?t=6785 <li> http://apps.cocreate.com/OneSpaceModelingPE/Secure/Forum/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=372 </ul> Hope this helps, Claus

Re: tutorial 1

thanks Claus. will sort through the info on the above links and try some of the fixes first to see if i can get around the problem without resorting to replacing my current graphic card with a new one on the ""approved list"". Yman

Re: tutorial 1

The SDPIXELFORMAT workaround usually settles the problem. I recently acquired a Netbook which has an Intel 945 Media Accelerator, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that CoCreate Modeling PE seems to work OK there. Claus

Re: tutorial 1

Hi Claus, I am trying to access the system properties window to set the SDPIXELFORMAT to SOFTWARE but have difficulty locating it. I tried edit/settings menu and did not find what i was looking for there. I need help like a step by step instruction to get to the system properties window. thanks Yman

Re: tutorial 1

See http://www.clausbrod.de/CoCreateModeling/OsdmFaqGraphics#BuggyDrivers for a description of how to set the environment variable on Windows XP. If you have Vista, http://support.tabs3.com/main/R10463.htm describes how to modify environment variables there. Claus

Re: tutorial 1

I set the environmental variable to SOFTWARE and my problem has been solved ! thanks a lot Claus. Yman
