How to modify 3d object

Recommended Posts

i am using the barrell awning (from CA library) and need to REMOVE the suspension cables.. as shown in the image.

 

Is there any way to do this.. and in general modify any other 3d object from the CA library?

Open the canopy in a new plan, delete cables using the Delete Surface tool then convert to symbol. (Tools>Symbols>Convert to symbol)

I think it would be easier to just create a poly-line solid to emulate that object rather than to export that symbol and then import it into sketch up etc, alter it and then reimport. If there is a separate material input for just the cables you might set them to "opening, no material" which would exclude them in render views, editing out the lines using the "Edit Layout Tool" in terms of Vector Views on a layout, it is your choice to make.

Sorry for the delay guys.

 

@Chiefer.. thanks that works.

@David, thanks for your suggestions.  for this awning, they do not have a separate material for the cables.

 

I might be better off creating my own with a polyline solid.

thanks.
