MicroStation PowerDraft CONNECT Edition Help

[Technology Preview] QuickVision 5 Support

MicroStation PowerDraft now supports QuickVision 5, which takes advantage of advanced hardware features, when available. For example, the higher level primitives are now moved to graphics hardware, and operations like tessellation and trimming are done in the GPU. In this version, the display of spline surfaces, including some swept surfaces is significantly faster in smooth shaded mode. Also work has been done on the hardware accelerated display of cones and elbows to speed up display times of piping models and the like. Note that the performance benefits are most apparent in 3D models, and in all display modes.
