I get these light-yellow surfaces all the time, where it should be another color. How do I avoid this, and why does it happen?
Are you using Alias for the models with the problems? Is the color on your model that becomes light yellow when translated into STEP always the same? What version of STEP are you using?
Congratulations! Your model is included as one of today’s "Featured Content: Staff Picks" on the home page – www.3dvia.com/
Be sure to watch the video in the Gallery to understand how the concept works. It’s quite novel. Can’t wait to have one of my own!
Yes, alias-09 all the way! T
The surfaces that become light-yellow are parts of other surfaces, which color stays correct.
These are the settings of the STEP-files I use:
Application Protocol: AP214
Model Type: Hybrid Models
Surface Geometry: As Is
Trim Curves: Parameter Space
Keep Mulitiknots: Yes
I am not entirely sure what these things means, but on most models these settings seems to work.
And thanks for picking my design!
You’re welcome. I really enjoyed the video!
I’m jealous! I’ve always wanted to use Alias (I have a product design and automotive background), but haven’t had the opportunity – yet.
It looks like, from this page: http://www.autodesk.com/techpubs/aliasstudio/2010/index.html?url=WS1a9193826455f5ff-54f556ca1166ac9ee9e-7a77.htm,topicNumber=d0e178529 , you are making the right export choices. You might want to try different options of Model Type and Surface Geometry to see if they make a difference.
Part of the process is also our translators. I know that having two surfaces in the same place causes problems and having the correct surface normals is important.
I hope this provides some clues for you. Anyone else out there use Alias and have any suggestions?
You can also try asking on the 3DVIA Forums, http://www.3dvia.com/forums/ . Even though there isn’t a specific Alias area, someone might be able to help.
thank you for your help, will check up these options!
You’re welcome. I hope that you find an answer and share it with the rest of us too. Other programs have problems with how surface textures are displayed and your solution may provide some clues for the others.
Congratulations Niklas! Your model is included in the Top 10 – 139 blog with pictures and links to your model.
