i have just installed Creo 1 & have spent the last day or so getting a feel for it. I am concerned about what i am finding whenever i shade a model, there is a rather strange shadow being cast onto the model which moves around as i rotate the model. Am not sure if this is some new enhancement which can be turned off or if it is a graphics card issue. I am using Windows XP Pro with a NVidia GeForce 7600 GT card, am there any known issues with this set-up.
that's what i'm nervous about, hopefully there is some way of configuring this lighting, to make this same as it has been for the last 10 years. I really don't like this as it is, the image i gave was jus a quick example to show the problem, i work quite often with small intricate surfaces & rely on the shading & meshing to get good surfaces. Hopefully, that makes sense.
The only thing that I can recommend is doing a search for "lighting" in the help file for Creo. I run W5 and I think Creo is quite an update to this module from W5.
Guess it could be a card or driver issue. I have an 8800 GT and this doesn't appear on my setup except for the shading with reflections. I tried adding different ligthts as mentioned below and I didn't see anyhing cause what you're seeing.
