Re: Texture Quality - Object Edges are not smooth (Round appears as octagon)

I too don't have access to Solidedge anymore, but in Solidworks there is a slider for 'curve quality' which does the same thing as Burrman is describing for Solidedge. There is a 'per part' setting - which dramatically increases the file size and a 'graphics' setting which affects how the part is vi...

Re: Texture Quality - Object Edges are not smooth (Round appears as octagon)

Simlab isn't a parasolid software it's a mesh software. Mesh's are triangles and the software will always interpret a parasolid in meshes. I have the same effect with solidworks reading straight in to Simlab, but I realise it's a limitation of the format being imported. If you import your Solidedge ...

Re: Texture Quality - Object Edges are not smooth (Round appears as octagon)

Looks very like the triangulation on the mesh is too large. I think the answer to this will be in the export settings of whatever CAD program you've created the file in. Simlab is a mesh rendering software and not a CAD system, and as a mesh is made up of triangles, you will always see some faceting...

Re: Linking objects for animation?

Hi Larz2, Yes you're quite right it is by moving the 'handle' to have the 'door' as the parent that they will move together when the top level door assembly is pivoted around the hinge that they will move as one. If you're having trouble dragging - try creating a new parent and then dragging the doo...

Re: camera problems

Hi etxe, One thing I always do that saves me confusing cameras in animation is I name one camera 'animations' and make sure that that's the camera I view through whenever setting up the animations. Otherwise it's very easy to set up through one camera and animate with another, hence you think it's r...

Re: Loading time of 11 minutes

That refers on many factors, one depends on the operating system itself and the number of applications that read/write (Disk Utilization) at the same time. For faster read/write operations, users often go to replace their mechanical hard disk drives (HDD) with solid state drives (SSD) or even NVMe ...

Re: Creating a WebGL VR from Template

Perhaps simlab could prepare a 'benchmark' file to aid diagnostics of problems - perhaps their Kitchen? Then we could download and benchmark PC versus Mac and see if it's an issue with the Mac version. How large is your classroom file Tessla?

Re: Creating a WebGL VR from Template

Hi Tessla, did you resolve your render times? I'm in work today and thought I'd do a test 360 over lunch break, which I ran @ 8000x4000 pixels - 250 spp. I started it at 12:55pm and it took 43 minutes to run.

Re: Internal Lighting... Soooo hard to get right!!

Yes jsaid is right, I've used our standard PC template before now, but I know nothing about the Mac templates which is what Tessla was struggling to find. Are they different?

Re: Internal Lighting... Soooo hard to get right!!

Hi Tessla, I had to ask Simlab for the template, then I seem to remember I adjusted it for my own purposes. There's a link to it in the v9 beta http://www.simlabforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=10741&start=20#p19522 I'm back in work Wednesday, so I'll see if I can upload my 360 grid then. It did have ...
