I have been working on modeling expanded metal sheets, with some success. My next idea was to simply add a texture or pattern just for a visual representation of the design pattern. What is the best way to do this?
I have attached a picture of the expanded metal Im wanting to replicate, and a picutre of my model.
Solved! Go to Solution.
So what I did was:
Perfect. Is there a way to have the textures appear in a drawing as they are in the model?
Display as shaded should do this automatically. [you may need to update the view, if existing]
Unfortunately, I cannot get it to work as Draft does not appear to be honoring the texture's background color/transparency and is shading the disk solid gray... I will probably log an IR about this.
I tried that, its just displaying as a dark grey color. And yes I did refresh the views.
Is the view your displaying in one of the "Grayscale" modes? It only works with one of the "Shaded" modes.
