Changing Cartoon Settings Using Model Display Options

If PhotoView 360 is not added in, you can control cartooning behavior by changing the Document settings in the Options dialog box that control color and line thickness in the model display.

To change cartoon settings using model display options:

  1. In the Heads-up View toolbar, expand View Settings and click RealView and Cartoon.
  2. Click Tools > Options > Document Properties > Model Display.
  3. To change the color of cartoon edges, under Model/feature colors, select Cartoon edges and click Edit.
  4. For cartoon edge thickness, type or select a value between one and six pixels.
  5. Click OK.
The image shows the result of selecting blue as the cartoon edge color and two as the thickness.
