Wireframe outline
I find with the new version of KC that less lines are used to define or represent, say a tube or a sphere.

I find this makes it hard to work in wireframe render, which is often easier to work in since you can see "through" other parts. But because the shapes are less defined now, it is a lot harder to use. Unless there is a setting somewhere that I miss?

I have to often revert to section views now, which slows me down.

I modeled a swivel foot yesterday - the ball shows absolutely no outlines and I cannot even pick a center! In solid render it shows perfect, but again I cannot pick a center. File attached.

Anybode else with these problems?

RE:Wireframe outline
I'm assumning you are talking about flowlines.
Goto Tools-Application Options-Solids there check Draw Flowlines and press the default button. I think that is the bahavior you want. You may also specify the number of flowlines for the individual surface types. Then press OK to save the settings.
For solids already in existens in a file you can go to the solids menu and select Modify-Modify Flowlines set settings and selecte the bodies to be modified in regards to their flowlines.
Hope that's what you are after, Hans

RE:Wireframe outline
Thank you very much Hans, my problem has indeed been solved by what you suggested.

For clarity to assist others: To modify the flowlines on existing entities go to "Edit", "Entities" and then select "Flow Lines".
