Graphics Override of Composite Skins

Anonymous
Not applicable
Is it possible to override in plan the different skins of a composite wall or complex profile, or does the override apply to the entire composite or complex profile?

You can set the criteria to find a particular fill used in the skin of a composite, but unfortunately any overrides will apply to the entire composite and not just that skin.

There is a very dirty workaround. Might not be suitable for production...
But it works.

Runxel,

Thank you. It is very interesting. I wonder if you could show how you created the override rule, and even if it is in German, someone may be able to explain it.

Since you cant override the transparent pen (0), you would assign this pen to the background of a BMAT.
The GO itself is very easy. It's just overriding the background pen to blue (the fill is set to "Only background" obviously).

Runxel,

Thanks for further explaining the override, but my question is how do you even select the individual skins in order to override them separately in the first place.

You can't.
It still overrides all skins - just not those with a transparent background.

So all you can do is make sure the composite uses building materials that use cut fills that have a transparent background pen for all those skins you do not want to change.

Got it. Thanks.

I know that my answer is a little stupid, and maybe a little late too, but why don't you "explode" your plan into a Worksheet?

this way you can create a rule to override the skin you want.
