System Variable Description HIDETEXT Use the On setting, the default, if you want text to be hidden behind
other objects and to hide other objects when you use the HIDE
command. If you use an Off setting, text will not hide other objects,
nor be hidden, unless is has a thickness. ISOLINES Sets the number of lines used to represent 3D objects in wireframe.
The default is 4 but values can range from 0 to 2,047. A value of 8 is a
good balance between display and speed. OBSCUREDCOLOR Determines the color of obscured lines, specified by using one of the
standard AutoCAD color index numbers (from 1 to 255). An obscured
line is a line that would otherwise be hidden when you use the HIDE
command and appears only when you turn on OBSCUREDLTYPE by
giving it a value other than 0 and when you use the HIDE command or
the Hide option of SHADEMODE. Also see HALOGAP. OBSCUREDLTYPE Determines the linetype of obscured lines. Also turns on obscured
lines. Also see OBSCUREDCOLOR and HALOGAP. 1 creates a solid line,
2 creates a dashed line, 3 creates a dotted line. For more options, see
the AutoCAD Command Reference in Help. SHADEDGE Controls the way edges are shaded. The setting of 0 shades faces but
does not highlight edges; 1 shades faces and highlights edges with the
background color; 2 doesn’t shade faces, but hides hidden lines, and
shows edges using the object color; 3 highlights edges only, using the
background color. The default is 3 although 0 or 1 are probably more
useful settings. SHADEDIF Sets the percent of diffuse reflective light to ambient light. The default
is 70. Values can range from 0 to 100. SURFTAB1 The number of tabulations used in the RULESURF and TABSURF
commands. For the REVSURF and EDGESURF commands, sets the M
direction. SURFTAB2 Sets the N direction for the REVSURF and EDGESURF commands. SURFU The surface density in the M direction for polyface meshes. SURFV The surface densit...
