Solid added to wall retains source layer colour, doesn't take on wall colour


(Djhg) #1

At 6:10 in the Savoie Terrace Level Walls tutorial video, vaAddSolid adds a red solid polysurface cap/cornice (colour set to “by layer,” on red Auxiliary Curves layer) to a wall. The added solid takes on the same colour as the wall in the video. When I do it, the solid retains the red colour from the source layer.

Hi @djhg,

Yes, you’re right, in VisualARQ 2 we respect the layer of the added solid. We don’t know which is the best solution, but now it is possible to add two different solids using a different layer, which it was not possible before.

My idea is to enable a “By Parent” layer, so if a solid lies in the “By Parent” layer, it will use the layer where the wall is. Does this sound good to you?

Not clear what you are suggesting, Enric. Is it possible within the current setup (so I can try it now)?
