Just done this small cam job, but I am unable to view it as a rendered 3D part. I guess I am doing something wrong (I know I have I am sure). Been a while since I have done some CAM work, so a nudge in the right direction would be a help.

EDIT: I have updated file to show a 3D image of product. No Chamfers added.

Possibly it's a polar bear in a snow storm effect. The reflection from the chrome body washes it out against the white background. Change the background (Options / Render Scene Environment) or the material of the object. I believe you go to "CAM / Settings / 3D Modeling Setup" for the CAM objects. It looks like you only get one material choice for 'all' CAM objects.
