wall caps not rendering

Recommended Posts


I have a query regarding the way caps, I can't seem to show the texture of a wall cap in any realistic render mode. I attach an image for clarity, the wall caps are shown by the arrows but appear with no texture... any suggestions welcome

With one of those walls selected, in the Render tab of the Object Info palette, under the "Part" dropdown there should be caps listed there, and you can then select them and revert them to use the wall overall texture. If you don't see that let me know.

it works!

Thank you very much Jim.

in a roundabout way, I had to 1) delete the end wall cap, then 2) show the wall cap line, 3) apply the render and finally 4) reinstate the end wall cap.

this way I have a 2D 3D correct representation... there's always a way with VW
