COLUMNS

Postby Gary Kleyn » 12 May 2006, 12:01

:( We have just found that when you place a column into the line of a wall
,the material of the column changes to match the wall - THIS SHOULD NOT HAPPEN!!!!!!!! We then attached the column to the roof using 'maximum intersection' & found that the column retained it's original material but became transparent. WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!! If anyone else has this problem please let us know

Which version are you in? Ohh, maximum intersection, so I guess you are in 9...

the fact that the column changed to pick up the material of the wall suggests that you are using 'column' instead of 'structural column' (from the structural tab). "column' is designed to do this, as it is, in effect, an engaged pier. I wonder if the transparency issue is related to the same thing, although it certainly makes less sense.

PS. Transparent columns - couldn't you just claim it is an architectural feature? :P

PPS. I just tested this on my install (build:20060426_2300) and did not experience either of the problems you mention (assuming structural column for materials issue, both types for transparency) :oops:
