3D view of an object style - plant

Recommended Posts


1. When I'm opening the resource manager and searching for an object style - plant in VW Libraries, I cant see the 3D view in the RHS pane?

How can I fix this? Also in RHS pane of RM, for an object style in active document that is showing 3D view in RM, by default render mode is on wireframe mode and view mode is on 2D. Is there a way to change this default setting?

When the 3D symbol is in an "active" document you can adjust the view and render settings that are under the symbol image in the resource manager.


Try this, open a blank file. When searching the RM for a symbol (in your case a Plant) the three options under the image in the RM image pane are greyed out. If you select that plant and import it into the open file. then in the RM select that open file to be active and look at the plant. The three options will be selectable. From here you can adjust your view and set to Open GL.
