Shingle Flare Hatch Issue

Recommended Posts

I have a molding polyline of a shingle flare. The shingle hatch is one I made and have been using for years. It appears fine in standard and vector view on the orthogonal portions. On the curved part of the flare the hatch disappears only in vector elevation views. Hatch pattern shows in vector 3D views.

Anyone else experience this before?

 

BTW - I'm also submitting this to support.

Molding profiles should be closed, except for an exception or two.

Learning something new here....

 

So Eric you are saying instead of having a radius for that molding if it is faceted then it will show correctly???  Have you seen a limitation if setting high levels of facets?

I'm just saying they need to be closed -- his was not.

Still seems weird that you need a 90 rotated material for the shingle flare, doesn't it? Even with Global Mapping turned on.

For whatever reason, that seems to happen to all moldings. 

 

I've been intending to make a suggestion ...

An even when a rotated copy of the material is used, it doesn't align with the original material. Not the pattern or texture, not x or y.

Kevin, are you saying that this wasn't a problem in Chief versions prior to X12?

This fixed it. Thank you Solver! You are a genius.

 

I did have this problem before X-12, but ignored it then.

Also, to retain the curve the CAD curve needed to be converted to a polyline.

Now that's better. Thanks for the help.
