2-D Desktop 3-D View Material vs. Wireframe

Post by SailorMike »

Greetings, all!
Can't find this topic anywhere, so here's my first post to the forum:
I've discovered how to turn the material wire view on and off, but I'd like to make the material invisible so that I can see my depth of cut referenced to the wire frame. Is there a way to make this happen?
Thanks, Mike.

Not sure what you mean by "depth of cut referenced to the wire frame".

If you hover the mouse over the toolpath in the toolpath list that will show you the depth the toolpath will cut to.

You can also hover the mouse over any areas that a toolpath will affect to see the depth (relative to where you have z-zero set) of cut there.

You can turn the material off in the View menu by turning the Color Shaded View off but I doubt that's what you're actually looking for.

Actually, that is EXACTLY what I was looking for. Many thanks, it works a treat. The other hints were a nice bonus, too!
