Rugs in library

Recommended Posts

I was looking for an area rug to put in a plan.  I called up "rug" in the library and tried to install a border rug.  None of them or the other patterned rugs would attach except for the items such as corded round rug or rectangular rug, etc.  Am I doing something wrong or is there something wrong with the symbols?  Are these just materials we have to apply to another rug symbol?

Some rugs in the Library browser are materials to be attached to objects like slabs or soffits and some are symbols with materials already assigned.

Does that mean, if I want an oriental rug in the dining room, I have to place a slab under the table and then put the oriental rug on it as a material?

...or you could just import a rug from the library and then reassign a texture (and map) to the rug symbol.

I did go to the library to bring a rug in. There was a good selection, I thought, but they are not symbols even though they look like one.

If you want an oriental red rug (or many of the others) I presume you bring in a rectangular rug and then go back and add the oriental red rug as the material. Seems to work but more steps than I was expecting. Much better though than the previous slab suggestion.

BTW. Thanks for all the suggestions. It's good to know people are willing to help on a Friday afternoon!

      Hi Guys and Girls.
       
      I've been away form this forum for a long time, maybe some of you still remember me.
      I had another job for a few year and I didn't have time to be here, how ever Covid struck and I lost the other job.
      So to make some extra money I will offer my symbols for sale and also take custom symbol orders, if you want something special I make it for you.
       
      You can see a few of my symbols, old and new on my facebook page.

      If you like what you see send me a PM or an E-mail.
       
      Best regards

      After so long since it was a pause when I used to work on CA x10, I am facing an issue; I have downloaded a kitchen hood hose from 3D warehouse as a symbol now both in 2D & 3D formats how to reduce the size of the symbol? If I try to squeeze it, the bounding box squeezes but the symbol remains large on the 2D & 3D plans. Thanks in advance.

      Hi
      I wonder if it is possible to somehow create a symbol out of these or similar free dwg Autocad blocks?
      I mean not to import but to trace and create a 3d polyline?

      (x11) When I open an object to fill (closed polyline etc) I have a standard list and the library option that takes me to Chief's library. It currently only shows that I have patterns of my own making in User Library. It also appears that I can no longer open 3rd party .pat files as I could in earlier versions. And finally, I cannot find a basic EARTH pattern in the defaults. So either I somehow purged some of the patterns or there isn't a default EARTH pattern. And how can I import my earlier .pat files? Not sure if this happened after installing x12 or if it is just this one file. Not using x11 but to finish out this project.
