I am wondering if you can create a new material from polylines. I have made many new materials from images. But in this instance I would like to make a series of metal circles to use to "paint" a hemi-sphere. I could find an image to use to do this, but I want the circles to actually have real holes so light can shine through them. I have attached an example of this for a light. I am able to create a series of holes using a circle and the 3D molding polyline, multiple copy them and add to the library, but material is not an option. This may not be possible...
Quick question. Is it possible to display plan view in the watercolor mode? So far I can only get watercolor to apply to the 3D views that chief generates.
I have a sample of what I am talking about generated with Sketchup imported dwg from a chief file.
Chief normal version = Sample 1, sketchup watercolor = sample 2
I do renovation work frequently. As part of my process I load a PDF of the existing plan then trace over it. I would love to have a button on my main toolbar that would toggle that one layers visibility. It is a pain to click through the layer dialog many times a day for this. Any thoughts?
I am drawing a plot plan and the terrain perimeter is angled a few degrees. How can I show a dimension between the terrain perimeter and the setback line? The manual dimension tool doesn't work unless the terrain CAD lines are the set angles allowed by CA. I turn off the angle snaps and grid snaps, and it still won't draw a dimension.
