I normally use my main PC with KiCad which has a decent GPU it in and and have not run into this issue before.
I am now using my laptop to design a PCB (PC is out of action) and running into a strange issue with the 3D viewer where the text (F.SilkS) looks corrupt. (I’m guessing this is purely cosmetic but would like to see what it looks like before submitting to the PCB house)
I’m assume its something to do with the GPU on the laptop. Its a integrated GPU in a Intel 3650 CPU (So nothing special). This is the only area where I’m seeing the issue.
Is there any tweaks I can try to get the text to display correctly?
I’ve played around with various render options in the 3D viewer but none of them made and difference to this issue.
