I can't modify the lighting for shaded views in dwg or idw.
I will like to know how to modify the lightning in a file dwg or idw for shaded views.
Solved! Go to Solution.
pretty sure you have to restart Inventor anytime you change lighting xml file... Did you do that?
This might be what you need. I had to run this down at a client last year for them and made a post out of it.
I tried the regedit but I still see different lighting. In fact, I don't see any change and I restarted my computer not only Inventor.
Also, I will like a solution that will follow the drawing if another user open it.
You may be out of luck then, this worked fine for me and about 50 other computers. The only hiccup I saw was if you were not an admin on the machine when you did it. And this is per install not, based on styles which I never had any luck changing for drawing lighting.
maybe you should explain what your issue with the lighting is or what you are trying to do..
There are only 2 things you can do and both have been explained here (lighting.xml file and the reg hack)
Thanks for your answers but it seems that I can't use the 2 solutions because I don't have the admin right on my computer.
I played instead with the orientation of the view and the color of some parts...
