Mirrored Components Dont have UV attributes

Post by Pomrose » Fri Aug 18, 2017 2:35 am

Hi,

When creating an assembly with mirrored components, the mirrored component doesn't have UV sets to control.

Also other components ar imported in with a blue sphere icon - don't have a UV set .

Any idea how to correct this ?

thanks

A blue sphere icon in Studio represents an instance, and Maxwell does not support per-instance UV coords (instances can have different materials, but not different UVs). An instance is exported when a body appears more than once in the same assembly; this can be disabled using Scene Manager > Output > Export > Instances.
