My assembly displays some bodies as solid, and some as wire frame so I can see through them.
Photoworks renders the wire frame body as solid.
Is that how it is?
look into contour rendering.
I did but it did not help.
Greg, shortly after the countour rendering feature was added I tried it several times with several assemblies. It never worked. Have you had success with this? If so, with what release, and how did you get it to work?
Contour rendering is working fine here in both PhotWorks 2010 and PhotoView 360 2011. You can't pick and choose which parts have the contours and which don't however. Either they all do or none of them do.
I have not seen issues with contour rendering... I would welcome hearing specifics with regards to any issues people have been seeing. Rob is correct in that contour rendering is all or nothing. One tip that I could give is if you want images like:
The trick is to set the contour rendering to show the solid and the contour. Then for the components that you want to be "wireframe", set the appearance of that item to be clear glass with 100% transparency, 0% reflectivity, index of refraction = 1. The above images were created using contour rendering in PhotoView 360 for SolidWorks 2011, service pack 1.
