Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video 3D graphics, part of AutoCAD 2017 New Features.
- Autodesk has also improved…the 3D graphics capability…when you're working in AutoCAD at 2017.…What they've done is they've changed…the entire 3D sub system in the background.…Now again, you don't need to worry about…how that works,…but what you can do is come down here again…to the graphics performance,…right click on the icon,…click on graphics performance,…and you can see there's a whole load…of new tools here in the hardware acceleration settings.…Now again, this is all based…on the direct X 11 virtual device.…
So if your graphics card doesn't support direct X 11,…you won't get these new 3D graphics features.…But basically, what it's allowing you to do,…is work in 3D more cleanly,…and it just makes the graphics nicer to look at,…to be perfectly honest.…So you've got things like the high quality geometry…for capable devices.…That works also in the 3D,…as well as the 2D in the previous video.…We've also got advanced material effects,…foreshadow display,…perpixel lighting,…and uncompressed textures.…
And all of this, it uses the video memory…
