I just reinstalled latest Rhino v5.0 and nXt.
Now for reason or another I cannot access/assign/edit materials via layers. It appears that currently only way to assign materials to objects is by dragging the material from Control Panel Materials section directly to object.
So in other words:
- assigning/accessing materials to/via layers doesn't work
- assigning/accessing material to/via object properties doesn't work
This is highly annoying and I never had this happen with the WIP versions. Could you please look into this urgently? And is anyone else experiencing similar behaviour?
Please see the attached files for further info (hardware config is partially in Finnish, but the relevant jargon part is same in any language).
I am having the same issue. I am a fairly new user of Rhino, so I apologise if there is something obvious that I am missing. Any help would be appreciated!
Hi Ryttäri- See if this works: for layers, click on the material swatch in the layers panel- at the bottom of the ensuing dialog, check the Plug-in setting. Then click Browse and choose a material- does this work? Alternatively, in the nXt control panel > Materials, right click on a material in the top list- the matertials in the file - and choose Assign to Layer (or assign to object)
For objects, the 'PLug-in' check box is at the top of the dialog for some reason, but the idea is the same- Properties> Material page, set to By Object, and then check Plug-in and then Browse...
Sorry for little late reply. I think I promised at some point to get back to this...
I got problem solved by removing rhino/Flamingo, ran registry cleanup and did reinstall. Apparently something had corrupted during first update that resulted the problem I complained about.
Things are cool now. Although I'd still think that the render speed in relation to quality could be better. This mainly because I do quite large/detailed interior design models. ;)
