Surface hatches on wall components

Recommended Posts

I cant seem to display the surface hatch in wall components in hidden line render. I can apply them whole on some walls but other new walls only seem to apply the surface hatch on the top and sides of the wall.

I ideally want to break the wall down into components so that i don't have a brick render for the internal walls

Ive attached an image below to see where i have gone wrong???

Hi BLAM, just a quick thought:

If you select the wall and go to the render tab of the object info palette there is a drop down menu next to mode. Try making sure it says By Component rather than By Object.

Also (just to check!) make sure display surface hatches is set as on in the hidden line render settings.

Hope this helps.
