Cabinet PIO doors won't accept color change

Recommended Posts

My base cabinet PIO is behaving strangely with respect to fill colors. If I assign a class to the "Doors" they do not acquire the color associated with that class. Instead, they take the color assigned to the "Cabinet." The container object is assigned to a filled class and the fill attribute "class style" - a choice that seems to affect only the 2d part of the symbol and, very strangely, the drawer fronts in 3d.

Aside from the contradiction problems with container object attributes in general, it seems to me that this behavior indicates a bug.

Katie, I sent a sample file to tech@nemetschek.net, and I'll send it to you as well.

Good to see you still peek in at this board now and then!

Pete,

Can you email the file you are having the problems with - or even just the part of the file with the cabinets?

I'll look into it and see where the problem may be occuring.

I emailed you back with the answer, but I'll post it here also for others to see.

The class style 2 and style 3 have "N" set for Use at Creation. Change this to "Y" and then re-render.

It should render correctly.

I'm not sure why the class isn't being defaulted to Y for Use at Creation, but I'll look into it.

Hi Katie, I emailed my reply to you, but just to keep this going here, changing the "use at creation" preference does not fix the problems that 1) I can't get the doors to be a different color than the cabinets, and 2) I can't get the 3- and 5-drawer cabinet drawer fronts to be a different color from the counter tops.
