Render all sides of an extruded object

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to render an extruded object using an image color.(plain color, obj attribute)

I'm not using transparency or reflectivity or bumps

When I go to render in either custom or final rw one side seems to be transparent.

I never noticed this before.

Is this right or do I have a problem?

VW 9.5.2

rw9.0.1

g3 500 256ram os 9.2.2

I am having the same problem with both extrudes (only the sides show the color while the top is transparent) and with a loft created from to NURBS curves??

Did you create a solid loft or does it not have the top and bottom surface?

You can send the file to be using the above address.

Please include a link to this page in the body of the email.

Sorry I've been a little absent. The file sortof doesn't exist anymore.

It was weird because sometimes when I changed the view the "transparence" didn't happen.

(No I was not using transparency)

I will try to recreat and then send you a file Katie.

If your talking to me TS how do you properly close an extrusion.

My extrusion was a simple rectangle. .75" x 2'-0" extruded 2'-0"

I have the same problem. My wall surfaces and vertical surfaces of extruded surfaces are fine, but I can't get a horizontal surface. I think I've tried every combination on the mapping dialogue. Does anyone know what's wrong?

I used to have this problem with complex shapes, but never with rectangles.

I've always had that (vertical yes,horiz no if extruded in top/plan) with extruded rectangles in 8.5.2 since it came out. Extruded polygons are fine so that's what I draw. I just thought it was something about rectangle objects.Is it supposed to be otherwise?

You should always be able to have a texture on all sides of most objects, including extruded rectangles.

Well, what do you know!

No problem. I had some sort of rendering trouble when I was first learning 3d and it had something to do with rectangles....possibly subtractions made from extruced rectangles. It works fine.

Thanks
