Hello there,

 

Having this dialogue box pop up every time i print

 

not sure what a raster view is and how I should be turning it on /off.

 

any help appreciated.

 

Joe Banger

I think it's as simple as right-clicking the view and choosing "Make Precise".  Check out the following thread:

Inventor 2013 / 2014 ?

 

You should be able to see which views are "raster" in the browser (they have a line through the icon) - or in the view (they have green brackets round the views)..  Have a look in help for a full description, but it's a faster mechanism for getting views of complex models on a drawing sheet quickly.

 

You can either wait for the views to become precise before printing (green brackets disappear) - or you can turn off "Background Updates" in Tools > Application Options > Drawing.  (I think it's in the same place in 2013!)

Inventor 2014 here, the Drawing views stay in raster state indefinitely on my computer. I literally let the computer sit over night to process a simple two view, one part drawing.

They made a change in 2014, you have to tell the views that you want them to be precise now. Take a look at the help files for an explanation as Peter suggested to the OP.

i like raster views, they show model edges behind a transparent part which can be really useful

Having the same issue of the view being locked at 12% raster state.  Removing the check from raster in the drawing view does not work.  Righ clicking to make all views precise does not work.  Let the file run over night does not work.  Opening and placing new view on highest end workstation does not work.  Assembly file size 4,187 KB
