shadowing just like in sketchup


Recommended Posts

is there a way to show shadowing just like in sketchup? i.e. not through a render but directly in the model and i can adjust the date and time and the model updates instantaneously


just like its show here at 1:40


currently i'm using sketchup more than autocad for this reason only and it creates problems especially when transmitting a drawing since autocad is the standard here in malta


also if it exists in later versions pls explain how it is done :)


thanks a million!!

Open your VISUALSTYLES palette, select the "Realistic" visual style, then scroll down to "Environment Settings" and set "Shadow Display" to "Full Shadows". As long as you have a video card that can handle it, you should see real-time shadows on screen.
