    Default Gouraud Shading

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Can anyone tell me where the gouraud shading option is in autocad 2008 or a command I can use to gouraud shade?

    Thanks

    hi,

    Is there anyway to shade the component only? When I gouraud shade using the option it shades the component correctly but the background grey.

    Thanks,

    I suppose you could use a viewport to show different shades? Is that possible..

    With Mathematics there is the possibility of perfect rigour, so why settle for less?

    Can't see gouraud shading there?

    Is it possible to change colours of the shading? For example on this component I cannot see the cylinder correctly so it would be best for the cylinder to be silver and the background to untouched (not silver). Can that only be done through a viewport?

    You are seeing the background as color set in Options.
    The color was changed in r2007 but the method to change has been the same as far back as I can remember. CAD 101.

    Did you try changing it to black or white?
