    striations show up in part when using transparency

    Jim Mapione

      hello.  Im trying to make a solidworks model just for display (not a schematic).  I have 2 cylinders, one inside the other, the outer one set to be about 50% transparency.  For some reason, the inner one appears to have stripes on it.   If I set the surface finish to be ‘chain link’ rather than ‘color’, even the links have the striations on it.  If I make the outer cylinder 100% transparent, the striations go away. So it appears to be something the way the object is being rendered with the outer transparency.   Any ideas on how to make this striping go away, it should be a solid color from what I understand.   I attached an image of the most simple case of the model that can made.

       

      thanks
