Create structural object with no line between them in hidden line renders.

Recommended Posts

All structural objects in VW like walls and columns don't show a line between them in hidden line render. That's because they are structural. You can have that to your own objects you create. Just select the object and use the following script on them:

PROCEDURE ToStructuralObject;

VAR
selected : HANDLE;

PROCEDURE SetAsStructural(obj : HANDLE);
BEGIN
	SetObjectVariableBoolean(obj, 702, TRUE);
END;

BEGIN
ForEachObject(SetAsStructural, SEL = TRUE);
END;

Run(ToStructuralObject);

Keep in mind that the script doesn't work on objects inside any kind of group.

You can use this for many things:

* Creating custom walls next to normal walls

* Symbols for kitchen cabinets where you want to be the countertop shown as a whole while it's really split down for each symbol.

* Objects you want to split on different layers like drain pipes.

* Many many other ways where you want to split an object for some reason, but want to show it as a whole on hidden line render.
