My drawings look pixelated in paper space... How do I fix this?

Hi,

 

can you give us any info that we can see what you see? The word "pixelated" can have so many meanings.

Show us a screenshot.

 

Have you checked that also with a new drawing?

I just tried to insert a screen shot but it is too many characters for a message.... It is super blurry and the pixels are huge. I am assuming I need to change a setting but I don't know what to change. The lines/ text are not smooth. On anything curved it looked like a jagged edge. 

FYI I am just doing a simple floor plan in 2D.

Thank you

Hi,

 

>> I just tried to insert a screen shot but it is too many characters for a message

you can also attach an image as file (using the "attachments" below your textbox where you write the answers to this thread).

 

And my other question? (Now more)

  • Have you tried same thing in another drawing?
  • Are only the objects "pixelated" within a viewport or also the objects you draw on paperspace (like title-block)?
  • What visual style have you activated in your viewport?

Save the drawing, close it, reopen.  If it happens again try not using True Type Fonts and see if that prevents it.

Same pixelation is happening to me. Below are two screen shots. One in model space and the other in paper space. I have not had this issue in the past while performing the same operations. I am also using a polygon viewport. Using C3D 2012. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Jamie

Hi,

On screen or on your plot?

Try to plot tp DWF and compare the result then.

both on screen and in my plot. It is like the image is not regenerating at all (either in the vp window or during plot). However, after moving my boarder to model space, scaling it up, and clipping the image, I was able to achieve the desired reslts. It was a pain to do, but it worked. I am just confused as to why this has just started to happen.

Hi,

 

do you have the image referenced or imported as OLE-object?

Have you tried to use another image-fileformat? E.g. if JPG is showing this issue then what happens if you convert it to TIFF and reference it again? (or vice versa).
