One day using fusion 2013 on osx (9). I am unable to get my drawing to shade. no matter what i do under options > material (physical or material). It will only show the wireframe. Attached screenshot. How do I get this back so I can add color / shades to make it a solid?

Hi,

 

You need to set the view style to one that is Shaded.

I have dowloaded Fusion for Mac today but I also have this problem. No matter which visual style I select it will not change from wireframe. If I select 'Realisic' the model dissapears altogether until another visual style is selected. I have even tried adding different materials etc to try and get the effect to work. I have also uninstalled and re-installed the software. Am I missing something more obvious or is there a problem?

 

Cheers, Tom

Apparently your material library is not installed or is corrupt.

 

  • You should be on OSX 10.7.5 or greater.
  • Uninstall
  •         Clearing your cache files

                 1. ~/Library/Application Support/Autodesk
                 2. $TMPDIR\Autodesk\BrowserCache

  • Try again.

 

Or better yet, install Fusion 360. This is the latest version of Fusion and is greatly improved over Inventor Fusion for Mac.

 

Thanks,
