Solid colour - edit and create two tone
« on: October 30, 2014, 03:15:48 am »
Hi everyone,

I'm new to the forum and fairly new to Keyshot having bought Pro yesterday after a free trial.

I have a 3D NURBS model I created in Rhino 3D, I'm trying to colour it as a solid model but with two tones...

The model is 2mm tall and I want the first 1mm of the print from the bed to be black and the last 1mmto be white.  Obviously I can split the model in Rhino and colour both components in Keyshot but then it wouldn't be a complete solid for colour export... Would it? :/

I created a simple black and white .png that I tried to apply to the model but I can only apply it to the face as a texture, I can't rotate it and have the solid model be coloured from black to white.

Any tips would be welcome

Cheers

Andy

OK, I worked out how to do it with a .png and rotating the texture, very basic stuff I know...

To close this post, does anyone have a resource for info about the export commands for OBJ and STL in Keyshot, please?

Cheers
