transparency problem

Postby wdwrkr » Fri Feb 14, 2020 9:37 pm

Hi all,
I am new FreeCAD user and am working through the tutorial. I have created a "body part" according to the tutorial. I am able to change the part color. However, when I try to change the transparency from 0 to 50, then the part image goes completely transparent with some of the edges not appearing, and, FreeCAD locks up (does not respond). I read some of the posts in the forum that relate to transparency issues, however, none of the repair suggestions seem to apply to my problem. The graphics card is AMD Radeon Vega 3. Any suggestions?

Which tutorial exactly?

Graphics card issues are really hard to troubleshoot. The only solution is to basically get a new graphics card or use different drivers (downgrade or upgrade).

Radeon cards have caused troubles before. Have you seen the Known OS specific issues topic?
