Viewport Display Settings

Is there a way to improve the display quality of the viewport?

 

I prebaked textures for my models but they do not display very well in the viewport.

 

Thanks in advance

I think a little more detail may be in order for clarification.  There are no "viewports" as such in Navisworks, and no "baking" of textures (I think thats the proper phrase?).

Sorry for the confusion, I didn't bake my texture in Navisworks, I baked it in 3dMax and imported it into Navisworks with a properly "UVMapped model.

 

In Max, your scene is displayed in the viewport. What do you call it in Navisworks then? And where can I find the display settings for it?

Ah, I see - thank you.  AFAIK there is no name for it; any available settings are in the Options.  There are some extended options available, through shift-clicking the Options button, but I think you'll find the same end results - Navisworks is nowhere near 3DSMAX in display quality.
