I have a composite 3D model with terrains, roads, pipe networks, and etc. The terrains have materials applied (draped rasters for the existing terrain and the "Grass" material for the proposed terrain). I would like to be able to use the "Transparent" display style so that I can see the pipe networks through the terrain. When I choose the transparent display style, however, all of the elements except the terrains become transparent.
I did some tests in a separate file with a simple solid and simple terrain model and I got the same result - the solid becomes transparent but the terrain does not. Am I doing something wrong or is this a known issue? Is there a way to make terrains with materials applied transparent? Any feedback is greatly appreciated!
We need a solution for this issue.
Have you tried referencing this drawing into another federated model.
You could then change the reference settings for the drawing to transparent.
I do this all the time
We had to view the triangles in the reference file and directly reference in the .dgn. Thanks
