Drawing quality?!

Hi All,

I've been struggling with Onshape's drawing feature. Any help appreciated.

Onshape is refusing to render a part drawing accurately. I'm seeing a threaded part get rendered as an assortment of disconnected lines. The main part gets rendered with lines extending into midair with open gaps.

Here's a screenshot of the issue. You can see a rendered view inserted into the drawing. To the right is the same view being inserted. It's almost like immediately after the view has been inserted, Onshape "optimizes" it into oblivion.

Running Windows 10 with Google Chrome on a pc with more than sufficient horsepower for anything involving graphics short of rendering Pixar films.

Here's the document

    By the way, you can also get to the view properties by double-clicking on the view.

    Sometimes posting publicly and typing out the issue for all to see is what's needed to get one's head around a problem.

    For anyone else having this issue in the future, right click on the part drawing. Choose View Properties. Switch View render mode from Best Performance to Best Quality.

    Thats the easiest way. I would like to have the option to change it for the whole drawing. not just for each drawing view. @NeilCooke

    Good idea! I would like to go a step further and set the default to "Best Quality" for every new drawing :)
