I’m having issues getting materials to update when I try modifying materials from rhino files that have been previously inserted as blocks. When I insert a model as a block the first time it contains all the current materials but if I were to make changes to the original file the changes do update after “updating” in the block manager.
I’ve just started using blocks so I could use more detailed models. I’m attaching a few images to show how I’m referencing each file into a new one.
So these are the settings I use when inserting the detailed furniture models into other rhino files.
Typically I will start with these then insert them into grouping files similar to this:
I tried outlining where some of the materials did not update in “capture3” as I have updated them in “capture 2”.
Then once I have created larger groups I will insert them as blocks into a “master file” which would be a final model seen in “capture4”
Some of the files I work with are .fbx files (I’m not sure if this makes a difference)… But i’m finding that the same situation happens with a rhino file that has also been inserted.
