Visual styles in Inventor 2011.
Inventor 2011 brings new visual styles for displaying 3D models. You can find them in the ribbon View > Appearance > Visual Style.
Some of the new styles and settings of their parameters (highlights, textures, shadows) require hardware support on the graphics card and they are not available on not certified cards.
See below some of the visual styles of an assembly file, sometimes you can use these in your marketing materials . . .

Shaded with Hidden Edges
Wireframe with Hidden Edges
Wireframe with Visible Edges Only
Autodesk Inventor has these Visual styles that can be accommodated in various stages of your design or conceptual stages
The graphics display of your model is referred to as a view on the model. It can also be referred to as a scene. How the view looks will vary based on the settings you apply to the view. The contributing elements are visual styles, ground plane, ground reflections, shadows, lighting, and camera projection.
Visual styles define the way the model faces and edges appear in the view. There are several standard visual styles to suit various modeling needs.
