I wonder what is the procedure if one would like to create own Eco-system materials? I have downloaded a limited sample library but some of them would need some tweaking to fit into our needs. I guess I have to purchase standalone VUE but does it export ecosystem materials to Microstation without any add-on?
Yes, you should consider a copy of VUE to create your own EcoSystem materials and yes the material can be saved as a VUE MAT file and these can be loaded into MicoStation's material system by dragging the file and dropping it into a MicroStation window with the Material Editor open,
I usually export the geometry to VUE from MicroStation where I want to see the EcoSystem so I can see how they look before I save them to MAT files.
To export the file from MicroStation you can use the key-in "vuewpf export " without the quotation marks, this opens a dialog where you can provide a name for the file.
Thank you, I will give it a try.
