Graphics issue

Hi guys,

I am having graphics issues. When I place a node to obtain some 3D object like a cylinder, cone, etc, the 3D background turns into half of the available workspace. As you can see, in capture 1 everything is good but when I connect Cylinder.ByRadius node, the workspace reduces to half (see capture 2). And the same happens when I connect the node Cone.ByPoint. I think the problem is when I try to reproduce a 3D surface.




I am really sure that is a graphics problem, but is there a way to fix it?
Specifications of my computer are in the following capture. By the way, It has integrated graphics (Intel® HD 3000)


I know that a graphics card is needed, but I think there must be a solution to this issue. Hope you help me. Thanks in advance



So, are you saying that currently you have NO graphics card in your computer?

I did not explain that so well.
My laptop does not have a dedicated graphics card

My guess is that this is likely the issue.

Not sure if you’re in studio, core, dynamo for Revit, or some other home-brew. I can’t readily find the requirements for core, but the published requirements for Dynamo Studio are “3d Graphics in Dynamo Studio requires Windows 7 or Windows 8 with a DirectX 10 compatible GPU” and I believe Dynamo for Revit has the same requirements as regular Revit (which you don’t currently meet).

A possible work around which I haven’t tried (you’re already into unsupported territory here) would be to disable the back round preview and rely on watch 3d nodes. No idea if it would work.

with background preview

without background preview.

As you see, the issue appears on watch3d node too.
I usually work fine with Revit. By the way these captures are in Dynamo for Revit but the same happens in Dynamo Studio :frowning:


It’s DirectX 11 compatible sr.
