Visible Edges DGN Files

You can create a visible edges DGN file — a 2D or 3D DGN file that contains the edges visible in a 3D view (that is, with those edges that would be hidden, removed).

Tip: Rather than creating a visible edges DGN file, the preferred technique in the context of the Drawing Composition workflow is to merge references into the active model. To merge references, select Tools > Merge Into Master in the References dialog.
Note: Creating a visible edges design file can be time-consuming. For visualization purposes, it is faster to render a hidden line display at screen resolution with the Luxology Render dialog.
