    Embarrassed How to eliminate lines on a thin sheet metal drawing?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I have many 3d metal sheet metal drawing. When I put the model into 3d model in to 2d layout, I see many 'lines' on flat surfaces. The 'lines' seem to be showing 'reflective effect'. However, it really cause problem when I give this to my boss. He asked why I cut the sheet metal into so many pieces. How I can set autocad NOT to show those unwanted lines?

    Are you able to post the drawing, or even just a smaller stripped down version of it, that will make it much easier to diagnose and fix.
    Volume and repetition do not validate opinions forged in the absence of thought.

    Could they be isolines? Or maybe even tesselation lines?
