Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Switching visual styles, part of AutoCAD: Rendering.
- You may have noticed, when we were…applying materials to our object,…we couldn't tell if the material actually…made it to the object once we dragged it on to it.…Once we set the realistic visual style,…ah, then we could see the materials.…So let's investigate what visual styles actually are.…To get started, let's jump into AutoCAD, obviously.…I'm going to jump into my archway drawing.…And in the Visualize tab, I'm going to…go to Viewport Configuration.…I'm gonna click the dropdown here,…and I'm gonna go three right.…
Excellent.…Now, once we click into each of these viewports,…we'll see up here, Custom View,…and it says Realistic right here.…So where it says Realistic right here,…go ahead and click that.…This brings up our pre-made visual styles.…This one, let's go with the Sketchy.…I kinda like that look.…Let's drop down to this one.…Let's set it up to X-ray.…
So once we zoom in,…see you can see the back faces,…you can see into your object.…That's pretty cool.…And this one over here we'll keep as Realistic.…So let's check out what makes these visual styles up.…
