automatic hiding of parts with linked materials
« on: February 08, 2012, 10:38:42 pm »
Hello,
As the title says. This was our workflow in Keyshot 2 as we render large assemblies. We assign a material to a part, shift LMB, hide the part, shift RMB to the part which needs the same material and keyshot 2 automatically hid the part as well. We continued this way until all parts are hidden.
Am I missing something in Keyshot 3 as it doesn't automatically hide linked material parts anymore ?
Thanks in advance,
Nick

In KeyShot 3 you can achieve the same by selecting all parts with a given material and then hiding the selected parts.

Is there a way select all objects with the same material without picking each one? For example all screws, PEMs, washers, etc?

I just noticed that the ability to select all parts with a given material is missing in KeyShot 3.0 - it has been added to KeyShot 3.1, which we will release soon.

Click "select parts with material", then click "hide selection".
