Facet problem in NX1953

Facet problem in NX1953

Facet problem in NX1953

We have attached two images with my problem. When we worked with NX10, this problem didn´t exist.
The visualization of the body of the part is perfect. The circumferences are circumference. But the visualization of the assembly parts mounted in the main part is bad, the circumference are like hexagons.
We have found in all the menus but we can´t find anything about this problem.
Please, do you have a solution por this problem?
Thank you!

RE: Facet problem in NX1953

Are you looking at a part or a component. If it is a component of an assembly, go to the assembly navigator right click on the component and click show exact. You can also go to preferences and visualization. There are settings in there you can modify to make these facets look so much cleaner, but it will be at a cost of GPU performance. See Image below. Do more research and look in the help documents for more information on this. Also there has been a couple discussion about this. Do a search and more information should show up. Sorry I do not have saved links.

How did you load the assemblies components ?
Go File- Load options and check if it's "Lightweight load"
I think this is the new default state.

On a loaded component in the assembly navigator, you can right click and if it says "Show exact", it's loaded lightweight and if it says "Show lightweight" it's...

Lightweight components will look extremely faceted when you rotate the display but "clean up to a level" when still.

RE: Facet problem in NX1953

I can solve the problem changing "show exact" on the assembly navigator.
Thank you very much, Tomas.
