MicroStation PowerDraft CONNECT Edition Help

Visible Edge Processing

MicroStation PowerDraft now sports a new, multi-threaded visible edge processing engine, which will take advantage of all CPUs and cores of a machine by parallelizing its calculations. This will significantly improve the performance of all operations that involve visible edge processing, such as exporting and merging Visible Edges, calculating references' Cached Visible Edges, and Non-rasterized Printing.

Note: Currently, there isn't any significant performance improvement in visible edges extraction when "Exact" is selected along with "Calculate Intersections". We are working to address this in a future release.
