Any subdivision volume I create seems to be invisible. I can "see" its points only when I select it. Here's a snapshot to show. My pen and fill colors are set to Black. I tried restarting to no avail. Please advise what could be wrong.

Thanks

ALso I just realized that when I create a solid volume, like a block primitive for example and Change Object Type to a Mesh, the outcome is also an invisible object. Only can be seen when I drag-select over it and the points show up. Just the points - no object.

By the way I am using Shark LT v9.

Absolutely! That fixed it. Everything was set to "hidden with dimmed" which seems to show the other solid objects fine, but no SubD volumes. Thanks a million Garlic.

You might want to check your color assigned to mesh edges. They might be white.

Prefs: Display : Surface : Edge Color
