Heya Team,

 

I'm feeling like a real noob. Id like to know how to colour the 3D component of truss made with the straight truss tool without changing the 2D fill colour. I also cant add a texture to the 3D model, like chrome. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance.

@Haydenovative Not sure how to change the 3D fill as the geometry is generated from using the tool but you can assign a texture using the render tab of the OIP and choosing the texture that you desire.  In my test I downloaded the Chrome texture and applied it successfully for renders.

For the Straight Truss tool? I haven't been able to texture a Straight Truss object via the Render tab for a few versions now...

 

I believe the only way currently is to assign the Straight Truss to a class and apply the texture to the class.

I believe the issue with not being able to apply a texture has been resolved.  I was able to apply a texture using the render tab of the OIP using VW 2020 SP4.

Interesting. No luck here, either in the 2020.

I can confirm that 2020 SP4 Windows does not take the texture applied through OIP. However, colour by class does allow me to add the texture. Not ideal for our workflow, but it will do for now. Thanks @Andy Broomell and @JustinVH.
