This is my setup

3,2 GHz Intel Core i5
8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M 1024 MB

Simple questions to start:

  1. Everything looks fine in the editor?
  2. You’ve added a Camera node to the scene?

kidscancode is right. A 3D scene will not show up without at least one camera. That was one my mistakes when first using Godot. The gray screen you see would be the 2D scene(which apparently is empty) that renders after 3D.

Camera is one thing, but i had a similar situation when i have a cam but the screen was still gray. The reason being was that I forgot to put a directional light after I modified the camera properties XD

I don’t see how adding a directional light would cause the scene to render properly. Maybe it’s a graphics bug? Do you think you could send a small problem that gives this problem for you, so that we may verify?

The suggestions are correct, you need at least a camera and a light to see anything.
