Hardscape setting - 3D texture

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm rather new to the 3D modelling of Vectorworks. Currently, I have a problem with the 3D setting of the Hardscape. 


I understand if I just draw a surface, I can extrude and creating 3D , and selecting texture through the object info palette. However, if choose to make the surface as hardscape, it seems I can only do the hatch in the plan view. I did set the hardsurface as a 'slab' with thickness. But in 3D viewport it's just a white solid. Is it possible to show the hatch I applied in plan view in 3D view? It helps for design at concept stage otherwise all the 3D slabs I have to adjust in the object infor-render part. 


For example, the decking hatch in plan view and the 3D view. Currently the deck is hardscape.
