How to shade cut and fill area
« on: June 06, 2017, 08:59:35 PM »
I have done the triangulation of two surfaces, and performed cut(red) and fill(green), but it only colours the polylines, how can I get cad tools to shade the relevant areas to cut and fill? Many thanks in advance  :)

Hi,

Plot the triangles as 3Dfaces (option in CadTools View/Edit Surface). Use AutoCAD's menu: View, Visual styles, Shaded (or try some of the styles)
