X8 Material Region Bug?

Recommended Posts

I have been having problems with Material Regions in plans brought forward from X7 to X8.  

 

When drawing bathroom tile, for example.  I draw a CAD box, use the "Convert Polyline" tool to change it into a material region and it disappears from my elevation.  If I take an overview of the plan I can always find the missing material region outside of the house.  What is causing this?  This does not happen if I draw a regular old polyline solid on the wall.  The polyline solid stays where it was drawn, however I don't have the control over the tile as I do in Material Regions so I prefer not to use polyline solids.

This seems to be functioning fine in X8 for me. So I would suggest trying to use the wall material region tool or reporting to tech support as a bug if the proper tool also does not work. Just curious, why the cad box?

Is there another way to get a material region up on a wall for tile?

Yes, you can draw it on the wall when in perspective floor overview, just make sure you are looking at the wall in a direct enough manner otherwise it will draw in weird places.

I always use the section elevation views or a wall elevation view if you don't want to see the whole building, but never any perspective view b/c you are looking at an angle

You can draw material region in elevation or cross section view.

That's my way of thinking Perry. Always elevation or section.
