Separate material on Polysurfaces

REMINDER! If you encounter any issues with Enscape (e.g. crashes, installation problems) or your subscription please reach out to our dedicated support team directly through the Help Center or by using the Support button as detailed HERE! Thank you for your understanding.
  • I was going crazy why can't assign different materials on each surfaces. With Rhino 6, each surface in polysurface can be selected with Ctl+Shift click. Then, I should be able to assign different materials. However, Enscape doesn't show it. Is it not supported?

    We have the same frustration! Hopping it will be supported soon!

    I will gladly forward your feedback, thanks a lot. :)

  • This is actually a big issue since it forces us to explode polysurfaces or model discreet surfaces solely for the use of Enscape. We had intended for Enscape to be part of an iterative design process but it has become, in fact, an obstacle to this intent since we have to cater this this very specific limitation. So, the request is very simple. Please have Enscape respect material mapping from Rhino, specifically sub-object mapping. As a point of reference, V-Ray respects this type of mapping from Rhino as does Lumion.

    yes, it's driving me insane to explode every single time to change material and regroup or rejoin. Imagine you keep doing that during important client meetings. Enscape also doesn't reflect displacement and render round corner. It gets crazy when all the objects have to be extracted as mesh.


    It feels like Enscape is focusing on Sketchup more. Hopefully Rhino doesn't get pushed aside.

    I understand your concerns, thanks a lot - this is something I'll re-discuss with our development team as well. Your feedback will of course be forwarded too.
