Paint Bucket problem depending on location of axis


#1

I ran into this today while painting a very simple window component. I was going to add the model here but when saved outside the original model it behaves normally.
I’m just wondering if anyone has seen this before?

#2

Is the material on the window applied to faces or to component/group wrapper?


#3

To faces, inside component.

I have seen it before with materials that have a direction. What is the deal with that material? Does it have the white/light gray area included in it?


#5

It’s the stock (SU) gray glass, worked normally on several other window and door components and six of eight panes in this one. The gif is slightly reversed from how I encountered this, the axis was originally at the sash lock position, only when I moved the axis to the lower right corner was the material displayed correctly. Hope typed that well enough to understand.

That’s weird because the gray class is just a translucent gray. What does it look like if you apply it to a large face? It’s strange that the light area should appear with that material when you change the axes


#7

Let me see if I can catch it again. I closed the model and wouldn’t be too surprised if it were to behave now. I can say the the improper display was in that quadrant of the axis and actually divided other faces without there being any edge present. I painted the frame while trying to figure this out.


#8

Here’s the window with other faces painted. Note the horizontal face isn’t interrupted.


#9

Could you share the window component?


#10

Well, earlier I intended to attach it with my original post. I had saved it to a dropbox folder and when I opened it all seemed normal. Let me open that again, make a new component and see what that does.

Edit: It seems to work fine in the saved version, I think I’ll try replacing the naughty one with the new one.

Figures, doesn’t it?


#12

Like cats and Baptists, you know they’re doing it, you just can’t catch em.

No fair! I had beer in my mouth when I read that. :smiley:


#14

That means there’s only one Baptist on this thread. :smile:


#15

And at least one mouthful of wasted beer…


#16

It was good Colorado beer, too. :cry: :smiley:


#17

Looks like someone owes someone else a beer at Basecamp… it will be FRESH Colorado beer, then!


#18

Indeed indeed! :smiley:


#19

I’m confused now, are the cats religious or are the baptists licking their bums? An by that I mean their own, not the cat’s.

Perhaps we’ll leave it for yourself to decide…
