Control of OOB Doors

Recommended Posts

In using the door tool, under options for the leaf, there is an option for a custom door. Picking one of the available options (a Craftsman style), the door comes in coloured brown and the glass is blue. I can not find any way to alter these two colours. They are not affected by class settings. The colours seem to be built into the leaf option. Is there a way to control them?

Find the relevant leaf symbol in the Resource Manager - in the open file - + right-click on it + choose 'Edit 3D Component'. There you can change the colours

Or change them to use Class Attributes so you don't have to do the edit the leaf thing again if you need to change it.

Once you select the custom door style it will appear in your resource manager in the symbol/plug ins folder.

-select it and choose edit 3d components

-select the door and in the attributes palette you can change the colour, I prefer to select it and set all attributes to by class.  Then in the Object info palette I set the object to a class I've created (that way I can change the door color/texture whenever I want).

-select the glass objects and set them to by class then assign them to glazing clear or another glazing class you've created.

Good tips. Problem solved. Thank you. Another VW mystery solved. About 90% functional with VW now. 100% is an elusive goal.

100% is impossible. By the time you go from 99-100 you have forgotten something between 0-1.  ;-)
