    without getting into every option, I see the same problem with Chauvet and Tomcat.

    @Rob Books I only went to experiment with these because they were mentioned here. I wanted to be sure they were behaving as I expected. Here are a couple of screen shots

    @Rob Books I'm seeing them in the VWX lIbrary, BUT when I choose one I get a monstrously complex error message.

    If you want to modify the truss, say make it blue, assign a texture in the Truss>Truss Class Definition. FYI, VWX folks, even though I just refreshed my libraries, I'm having difficulty accessing this truss library in the VWX Libraries, Only the VSS libraries

    When you insert a truss object with the insert truss tool and choose a symbol from the library, VWX adds several classes. Amongst them are Rigging>Truss>Simplified ad Rigging>Truss>Truss. The simplified class is a really simple box geometry meant for speedy navigation. The Truss geometry is in the Truss>Truss class. Turn that on and turn the Truss>Simplified off.

    Well, I don't know where you're looking. If you're simply rendering on a Design Layer you can go to the Navigation palette, Classes tab and turn the class off. Similarly you can go to Tools>Organization and the Classes tab and turn off there. If you're woking in a SLVP, you have to select the SLVP and then click the Classes button in the OIP and turn the class off in there.

    Renderworks texture preview different from actual result

    your results don't look like your preview. Are you texturing an object above?

    Turn off the class rigging-truss-3D-simple I my have the name wrong there, but it's close.

    I think I would start by using the Loft with Rail tool to make one, duplicate as needed. Add the surfaces together, then use Shell Solid to get the thickness.

    If I understand what you're asking, you need to do and export ESC or MVR with just the objects you want visible.

    Please yes, as some type of option, It's not always the needed answer, but oh so very often

    Just curious, have you tried the grass texture?
