Rhino can have per surface colors, so why does join ignore this and just creates a single colored polysurface despite a multi-colored input?
Is there a setting for this?
It’s a bit inconsistent, because boolean difference, for example respects the colors.
I feel like the default for behaviour for join two things to inherit the last selected colour is okay. But I see what you mean - if you’ve defined a subsurface colour, that should be retained right.
Well… I just exploded something, trimmed and then joined… and the colors stayed… so… what determines when things stay and when things don’t?
(Turns out, the materials didn’t all stay, though…)
Hello - in Join, the properties of the first thing selected wins - if there is a preselection, then all bets are off and the one that comes first in the object list wins. But per-face color should survive either way.
