V-Ray Clipper - does this actually work ?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone succeded in using the clipper to render a building in section (as with "clipping planes") so that all cut objects are assigned a colour ?

(i.e. everything sectioned is red )

Cant get this to work... any hints ? "Use object material" (or unticking it) does not work it seems.

This from the manual: Material: Specifies the material used by the clipper.  This option is not accessible unless the "Use object material" setting is disabled. 

..does not appear in the tool options.

Also under "attributes" I only get this:

Hi,

For me it works, like on 

http://www.formz.com/products/vray/V-Ray_Documentation/index.htm#t=Clipper.htm&rhsearch=clipper&rhhlterm=clipper&rhsyns=%20

explained. So basically you create your main object and then your clipper-object. You have to assign the clipper object, by clicking on it with the Vray clipper tool.

And you can set materials for main object and clipper object differently.

But for me to show the material of the clipper on the clipped object, the "Use Object Material" should be unchecked(in the options of clipper tool).

Hope that helps!
