Poor line/aliasing in display


Hi,
I am getting really poor anti aliasing ( jaggies) on my screen/dispaly when drawing
circles and such with solid edge free 2d. I have an NVIDIA geforce 8800 gt set to
the highest open gl antialiasing accellerated modes.
Is there a setting in solid edge free 2d to help the quality of display?
Thanks,
Jason

Jason,
Can you post an image of the poor display you are seeing. I am using 1680 X
1050 resolution. If you can send an image of what you are seeing, maybe I
can compare.
Regards,
Rick B.

Hi Rick,
Thanks for replying to my posts.
attached is a jpg screen shot of the aliasing....not terrible but nothing like autocad.
My main quesiton is can it me improved through new video card or other settings.
Thanks,
Jason

Jason,
That looks correct for the typical display in Draft. Draft display is based
on GDI not Open GL. When you print a drawing you will not see what you
describe on the drawing. I will let others chime in here, but I don't
typically hear many complaints.

Thanks Rick. Re: Poor line/aliasing in display

Thanks for looking into my questions Rick.

Re: Thanks Rick. Re: Poor line/aliasing in display

Looks OK to me. Solid Edge Draft (in the full product) is typically used
for displaying views of a 3D model and drawing the occasional simple 2D view
(labels and such) or schematic. Like Ricky said, looks perfect when
printed.
