Switching between Shaded Mode and Wireframe Mode

Models can be rendered in three modes: shaded with wireframe, wireframe only, and shaded only.

Wireframe mode shows outlines of the parts in your assembly and renders more quickly.  

Shaded mode gives a more realistic rendering of the assembly. It shows the surface of the assembly, its color, and lighting effects.


To switch between rendering modes, do any of the following:


From the toolbar, select Rendering Mode to switch between the three modes:


Shaded + Wires ( )


Wireframe ( )


Just Shaded ( )


Right-click on the CAD Workspace background, select Rendering Mode, and then select the desired mode.


Shaded + Wires




Just Shaded
