Using Ambient Occlusion

You can view models with ambient occlusion in eDrawings. Ambient occlusion is a global lighting method that adds realism to models by controlling the attenuation of ambient light due to occluded areas. It also provides clarity between components.

Ambient occlusion can affect performance.

To use ambient occlusion:

  1. Click Options or Tools > Options.
  2. In the dialog box, on the General tab, under Performance, select Graphics Boost and Fastest speed and click OK.
  3. Click View Settings > Ambient Occlusion (Heads-up View toolbar) or View > Ambient Occlusion.
