I am trying yet again for block instance as even a simple bolt/nut made as an array of 40 is seeing another different bolt/nut (never ever a block instance, its spirals are not block instance), pasted in take 30 secs !
(should a bolt be made of block instances ?)
I place the pasted in bolt/nut on a grey layer ‘FINAL BOLT STUDS AND NUTS - master for block instance’,
I then block instance it and make a polar array.
Later I select one of these grey bolts, they dont go yellow (my selection colour) so I cant see it compared to the items I need to compare it to,.
I need anything I select to use my selection colour of yellow for the curves etc. To have no indication of selection is surely against chapter 1 verse 1 of using Rhino !
Secondly its showing at bottom of screen layer data as being on a beige layer ‘gasket bolt area’, yet it started life on grey layer and I havent moved it at all, I made the grey layer for it.
I just dont get these block instances and dont see the cause and help I need in the pages on them I am referred to.
I only try them because of the horrendous slowing down of Rhino caused by 40 bolts.
but spend hrs trying to do the basics with them. They are not intuitive at all.
