Custom Materials List?


#1

Is it possible to create a custom materials list, so that each time you draw a line, or object, the object is drawn using the materials specified?

This would also give you a 3D texture, with your very first object.

For example:

I want to create “angle iron”, “round” and “square” tubing of different sizes.

When I want to draw something using one of these pre-defined material types, I just need to draw the shapes, and the application would do the rest.

In the case of angle iron, you would need the ability to specify whether the 45 degree channel was facing up, down, left, right, in (toward the center of the drawing), out (away from the center of the drawing), or at some specific angle, between 0 and 45 degrees. (Using left, right, up, or down, then adding the degrees in a clockwise fashion, will get you every angle between 0 and 360.)

Thanks for your time, and have a great week.

Just make template with predefined layers with appropriate materials by layer and put the objects on appropriate layer.
