AL04 Silver Maple.celI have attached the file.
I have taken a dgn and have three models
One each has a tree of different age from xFrog Young, Mid, Adult
In Each Model I place three shapes One on each of three levels - Top, Front, right
Each shape is the elevation size of the TREE.
I then create three materials for each Model Plan, Front, Right
So I end up with:a Tree on one levelA Square with a material of the Front Elevation of a TreeA Square with a material of the Right Elevation of a TreeA Square with a material of the plan of a Tree
I go through each Model and do the same
Note that I have a total of 9 different materials each with a different name
Now I cycle through the models and not the wrong materials are being used and some are upside down
I cycle through the models and make corrections
After doing this several times I realize the materials are being mismanaged and lose their place
So after I fix a model I make sure I save
Note that all the material are fine HOWEVER I did see one quirk in the Material Manager. There should be one plus by the three material in the Model I am working on. this does not sync as there are usually 3 with pluses but it may be of another model and not the one I am in. for example right now I am in the young tree model and the Med materials have a plus.
Now after correcting each model I cycle through them again and still the materials change and flip.. I even have the original of one model open and model that now has a ref of that file open and one is flipped and the other is not.
