Hi there y’all! I am very new to SKU and have enjoyed the learning curve thus far! So this is possibly a very noobish and beginner’s inquiry into materials and textures; however, I need to give it a shot!
So in essence, I have created a simple 2D SKU of a landscape (a backyard with a house), and I have gotten absolutely stuck on why one of my materials/textures that I have assigned to one of my entities simply will not show up or is visible.
I have tried and tried to compare the different entities that do show their materials/textures correctly, and I also have tried assigning the particular material to all aspects: the face, the group, the component, both sides of the faces, reversed the faces, and tinkered with the materials/texture settings of all the other groups to see if there was anything I might have overlooked.
At this point, I have assigned a “metal roofing” texture to the entity group which has been tagged with “Gazebo.” However, no matter what I do, this texture/material refuses to show up. Please note that this particular group is on “top” of another group, tagged with “Gazebo Patio”, and both of these groups are on “top” of the group, tagged with “Property Lines.” I use “on top” meaning I created each of these entities separately, one after another. Also note that the entity/group tagged as “House” had cut-out the property line area when I created the “House.” Every other group is as if they were “on top” of the property line area.
I thought that perhaps I had grouped all of these entities under “Property Lines,” and I tried re-grouping just the property outlines while I had the other groups moved outside of the property outlines.
Anyway, I am hoping that some uber SKU pro’s on here can assist me in figuring out what the heck is going on.
There is also the distinct possibility that it may have something to do with my graphics cards (NVIDIDA GeForce 9800 GTX+ with 512MB of RAM each.)
I look forward to getting to the bottom of this! My .skp has been uploaded.
