Why does display objects representing glass show up so dark?
Note the wine glasses on the floor.

Keith,
Take your wine glasses into the display Part editor and change the RGB color of the glass to something lighter. the lightest is 250, 250, 250,

Hey thanks Kerry, but this is what I am getting. Is this the best I can get?
This is not a critical issue, but I would like to know if I can improve any presentation skills.

Thanks,

Do you have the \"Transmission On\" checkbox checked?

Arched Mullions, muntins

Postby Christopher Stapleton » Tue, Jan 09 2007, 4:58PM

Keith,

Am working on a bar and am planning to fabricate or buy out arched mullion doors very similar to those shown in your rendering. I elected not to include thi in my fiorst rpesentaiton as I was unsure how to proceed.

You're doing this in the part editor and cutting out apnel or cube then applying a cope and stick profile to these or is there something in the door drawer editir I'm missing (I'm trying to do something like the 7 lite Conestoga Cathedral Arched Mullion)

Thx for any assist.

Hey Christopher,

What you are seeing is a display object I created in a separate 3D modeling program and converted it to an .stl file that eCabs will open in the Display Part Editor. In the DPE I added a material and saved in as an .hsf file that i used in the Cabinet/Assembly editor. I was trying to represent a cammed glass insert in a cabinet door. Attached is the file of the camming if it will help.

Keith,

Thanks much, I'll try to learn something from this, but will not have much time to invest for this project.

Cheers
