Gradient Not Displaying

I am using curve length to colorize with a gradient in grasshopper; it works perfectly in grasshopper but only one color will display in ShapeDiver. Here is a simplified version of the problem:

I recommend to use ShapeDiverDisplayGeometry component as it allows more advanced control over the rendering parameters and supports textures. In order to apply different materials you need to have a tree of geometry, a list can only have a single material. I updated your definition, have a look.

It’s also worth exploring the documentation page where you can find example files to play with. Our blog is good source of tips for efficient Grasshopper and ShapeDiver modelling too.

Thank you for your response! Before seeing your response I figured out that applying a material to a list was the problem and came up with a more time intensive solution of separating each item out and applying the gradient. Not the best solution but it worked!
