Anyone know how to optimize the 4K Monitors for NX 11

 

I have dual Dell P2715Q's.

NVIDIA graphics

Windows 7 pro

 

We previously ran NX9 and 4K monitors didn't work all that great with NX9.

Hello @wakeboarding77,

 

In NX 11.0 you have a special Role for 4K screens.

Start here, and see if this give you the desired result.

 

Kind regards,

Another thing that might be useful is the screen calibration control you will find in Visualization preferences (Vies/Screen tab). 

With this control you can scale UI objects in the graphics window, like WCS, handles, etc... You can set everything to be a little smaller or bigger than the 5cm in the calibrate screen.

 

Handles have their own size control, but you probably do not need to change it. It is in Visualization preference (handles tab).

 

I hope you will enjoy your new display with NX!

Hi DickBaardse,  

 

Can we read the value this slider sets somewhere?

This would allow one to subsequently use this value on an environment variable for each NX upgrade cycle (provided you don't change the hardware setup)

 

Thanks!

Julian

Oh, sorry, found it.

Actually, text ends with:

"The values specified by these environment variables or resources are used only until you change the screen resolution with the Calibrate Screen Resolution dialog box."

 

This means that if you had previously used the Calibrate option the environment variables will be ignored unless you delete the keys from the Registry (located at: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unigraphics Solutions\NX\{NXVERSION}\Visualization)
