Join Eric Chappell for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with Surface Display (Opacity and Wireframe), part of InfraWorks 2016 Essential Training.
- Since the title of this chapter…is Changing the Look of Your World,…I found it fitting to cover…two important surface display functions.…Let's see how they work.…I'll start with the Phase I bookmark,…which will zoom me in to the subdivision…that we've been working on.…And the first function I wanna show you is Wireframe.…And the place to find it is,…if you open the Core Tools and then click…the Design icon or the Create icon,…you'll see the Wireframe tool here in this location.…
It's really simple, it toggles on and off,…if I click Wireframe,…then pretty much everything in my model…becomes a wireframe of itself.…So you can see the terrain,…the homes, the roads, everything.…And it's handy for getting kind of…an x-ray look at the model.…Notice that I can see through the model,…I can see things that are underground,…like these pipes and inlets,…I can see through the building…and the cars on the other side.…I'll admit I don't use this view often,…but when I do need it, it comes in very handy,…kind of, like I said, take an x-ray of the model.…
