I have created a wire within an assembly. I then gave it a white color. But the white looks gray with white hues to it. I just want to show my white wire as "White". Is there something set incorrectly or is it my graphics card?
That is just white shown in a shadow. Go into your Scene Appearance and set the ambient light higher. This will make all whites from all directions appear whiter.
If you have RealView Graphics turned on, you can tweak the background color/ scene too; depending on the lighting scheme, and the background selected, white might not appear to be true- white.
Typically I just cheat and use one of the "LED" light settings from the realview appearance settings. Also, take a look at this thread:
If your after a solution that works with standard settings and no messing about with lights and other scene type wizardry then the solutions is rather simple...
1) Design your part, set up all the colours i.e make your bits white (grey lol)
2) Open a blank part file
3) Import the part into the blank part file making sure to tick import visual properties
4) And boom... red is red... white is white... etc
This process corrects Solidworks' weird RGB to non-RBG colour issues.
Or even easier...
...delete all the directional lights from the scene...
...then set ambient to 1.
