Hi, Im new to the community so go easy on me please : )
After some time, my creations tend to lose the shadows on the objects and only the ground get shadows.
I saved a copy of my project, purged everything and drew a box on a plane. No shadows but on the ground. But there should be a shadow on the plane.
Im on Sketshup Shop.
Here is a print screen and .skp-file.
Shadow test.skp (18.9 KB)
In desktop version there is an option to Display: On faces
Unfortunately Sketchup Shop is web only.
It is very odd, there doesn’t appear to be a way to turn on or off shadows on faces in the web version, so How did it get turned off?
Any chance you imported a model from somewhere that may have brought in that style setting?
No I didn’t.
And the model did have shades on faces for a long time, and then today, poof, they disappeared.
It is the second time this happens.
Let me explain:
The last model got this same issue, so after giving up on saving it I started a new fresh one. I recreated the old one using copy paste of the components, one by one. (There are probably better ways). And this worked like a charm! Shadows everywhere, until today.
This is an oddity @colin that should be forwarded to the relevant people. At the very least adding the ability to turn shadows on faces on and off would be helpful.
This does seem odd, that although there isn’t an option to turn shadows on faces off, it had managed to get turned off.
