RenderSystem Namespace

A RenderSystem provides access to resources used by the internal WebGL-based rendering system. An application rarely interacts directly with the RenderSystem; instead it interacts with types like Viewport which coordinate with the RenderSystem on the application's behalf.

Interface

Name Description
RenderSystem.Options Options passed to IModelApp.supplyRenderSystem to configure the RenderSystem on startup.
