Image-based Silhouettes

Starting from Eyeshot 2023, it is possible to detect and draw silhouettes by leveraging the computational power of the GPU.


To enable this feature you should set the relative property: 

DisplayModeSettings.SilhouettesDrawingMode = silhouettesDrawingType.ImageBased;



  • Fast
  • Independent from the polygon count


  • Silhouettes are detected only for opaque geometry
  • Silhouettes can't be drawn thinner than 2px
  • Edge quality could decrease
  • Some silhouettes could be missed, especially on small details compared to the scale of the scene
