    Export 3D image (JPG) Reply

    I have a design that I have mapped all my step files and viewed the board in the 3D viewer. Everything looks good. When I click File>Export Image, Allegro exports a  blank JPG file. It creates a file that is 32KB and contains just a blank page. I also tried a tif file. Same result. 

     Has anyone suceesfully exported a JPG from the 3d Viewer? Any ideas on what might be the problem?

    No I have never yet got an image out of it. I use the snipping tool in windows.

    Cadence have a solution for this 11768894 but the basics are that if you are using a Windows Aero theme for your computer the Capture Canvas images do not work. You need to change your Windows theme to Windows Classic then the images are produced correctly.
