Applying materials and linetypes to layers


#1

Is there a way to apply different materials or linetypes to layers in rhino for mac? When I open the layers panel, there is not an option to change either.


#2

Right-click on the layer and select “edit layer” for changing the line type. Don’t know if/how materials can be assigned.

Just wanted to second this post - though it’s always possible I’ve missed something obvious switching from Rhino 4 to 5 OSX. But it looks like there’s a “Material Library” column in the Layers panel but it’s blank and uneditable - I’m guessing that will be the way to assign materials (Toucan for now, VRay when it’s available for Mac) by layer but it hasn’t been set up yet?

Im also having trouble with this. Doesn’t appear that you can set materials to layers yet.

If someone could confirm or deny this it would be useful.

Is there a schedule for when linetypes other than continuous will be available? Thanks -Carter

[EDIT] I found them. Odd that they must be loaded in the Settings dialogue pane before being available. Shouldn’t they just be on by default?
