Re: Materials

Ok, Still trying to get an image cause I don't like to give up. I've assigned one of the Indigo materials to a mesh in Blender by using the "external" tab. Browsed to the materials folder that Indigo says is the internal materials folder and picked and assigned it. Now when I go to render I get the ...

Re: Materials

Thank you developers for your thoughtful replies. Yes, there is going to need to be a lot of work if you intend to enter the engineering CAD workflow. Applications need to be as seamless between working environments as possible in order for rendering to be as easy as possible; otherwise you're not g...

Re: Materials

Ok, I clicked the wrong thing from his post. Now it opens. Great. Now what I am I supposed to do with this? How do I save it to a library that I will be able to preview materials from? Where is the documentation on this? How are new users supposed to learn all this? I've saved the material to where ...

Re: Materials

CTZn's clickable file was a .zip file. In it are a bunch of folders that contain what look like python scripts. Nothing in the folders contain a pgim extension.

Re: Materials

dougal2, The material that CTZn posted for download contains no files with Indigo extensions and cannot be used in Blender like you describe. Other Indigo materials that I've tried to use in Blender give me an error message (see my earlier posts in this thread). Something is broken between Blender a...

Re: Materials

Thanks for the suggestion of a new material; but I have no idea what to do with that download. There is nothing in the zip file that shows any extension that Indigo looks like it would import. I and no one in my studio is a python programmer. The documentation for learning the package is totally lac...

Re: Materials

So, let me get this straight: there is no bundled library of materials that should have been part of the Indigo installation; there is no information in the online manual about how to load materials into Indigo; and since I can't seem to be able to open any materials in Indigo I'm stuck having to cr...

Re: Materials

Thanks for the answer, but when I do that I get a message that the PIGM file is invalid.

Where should the material database be located? No previews of any materials show up through Indigo. Is there a default library for Indigo that should be part of the installation?

Materials

How do we get downloaded materials into Indigo or Blender? There seems to be no material library to browse other than the one online, and then no instructions (at least in the online manual) on how to preview them, or assign them to objects. Do I need to be a programmer to use this product? (pulling...

Re: Can't get geometry into Indigo

thanks for the info. I guess I made the bad assumption that all things I downloaded yesterday from blender, blendigo and Indigo would be the latest versions. I'll get the right ones and see what happens. STL's are usually for for rapid prototyping and therefore don't care about having info on their ...

Can't get geometry into Indigo

I'm trialing Indigo 3.0.14 64bit for Win7 and trying to use Blender to transfer my models from SolidWorks. So I have some stuff in Blender but having no luck getting the model from Blender into Indigo. I've installed the Blendigo addin into Blender and tried exporting an indigo mesh, and an indigo s...
