I have 4000 FBX format elements exported from Catia V5 or V6. Each element has a unique ID, 3D cooridnates and material properties.
I also have an “dynamic” Excel sheet with ID and time properties associates to each element, cause the time will change once a week.
My task is to
- put all elements in one Rhino model based on their coordinates.
- change elements’ material color according to color changes based on the predefined rules.
- outout the whole model as FBX.
I plan to get material name using Excel formula and output the then names to GH.
I want to know which GH components I should use to change the material colors.
Rhino Example is attached.
Materials.3dm (810.9 KB)
In this example, I want to assign “Concrete Purple”, “Concrete Green” and “Concrete Blue” to the 3rd, 4th and 5th object (from left to right), respectively in Grasshopper.
Result should be:
Update (it works, but see issue below):
The baked geometries lose property, like the Name “A1”.
I want to write paramater and its value into “Attribute User Text” by GH, how to do that?
