strange mesh problem

strange mesh problem

(OP)
hello, i was sent a 3D model exported by 3d studio max, and opened on rhino 4.
obviously its all meshes.

the issue i got is that these meshes are modifiable ONLY in their shape NOT in their texture, or color...

example:

layer 1: mesh 1, material: none, line color: black

layer 2: nothing on here, material: wood, line color: red

if i move mesh 1 to layer 2, it SHOULD inherit layer properties. it doesnt. BUT if create another object in that layer, a box for example, it works perfectly.


SO I SHOULD KNOW WHY THE MESH DOESNT CHANGE ITS APPEARANCE WHEN I GIVE TEXTURE COMMANDS, LAYER COMMANDS, MATERIAL AND COLOR COMMANDS...

RE: strange mesh problem

You might want to try the new Beta version of Rhino 5. It has a lot of new fuctionality and may do what you want. You won't have to buy the beta version to try it out and it is a working copy of the software but it has a limited expiration date.
