How to modify Manufacture 3D Catalog Object?


Recommended Posts

I want to modify an Amarr - HAMPT - Stockton Decratrim garage door.  It is very close to what my client wants include the 8 rec. per panel and top row windows. 

 

Except he does not want grills on the glass, just 8 plain glass in the top row.   It there a way to explode the object and remove the grill?  Or a way to export the object into another tools to remove them?  Garage does seems to me the must inflexible part of CA.

For something like garage doors, you'd have to export the door out as a dae/3ds/etc and strip the grill geometry off in a 3d editing program like blender...

Most things in the 3d library are imported from software like blender or 3ds max, so we can't enable "exploding" on these kinds of objects.  Exploding is usually limited to things combined together in Chief after import like kitchen island sets, dining table sets, cabinet combos, etc.

 

Hit me up if you hit any snags going in and out of chief with your door.  GL!

A forum search for symbol delete surface will show you don't need to export. Everything may be done in chief.
