Applying Effect to Objects

Effects allow you to draw attention to specific parts of a model. You can highlight pars, give them X-Ray effects, and turn them solid colors. These settings are found in the Hame tab of the Ribbon, but you can also access them through the properties tab of the object you have selected.

X-Ray (Hotkey: X)

The X-Ray effect will turn the selected object(s) semi transparent in the color the Effect Color is set to. X-Ray can be applied from the Home Ribbon or from the Effect property in the Properties Tab when the object is selected.

  1. Select an object or mutliple objects by holding ctrl

  2. Click the X-Ray icon in the Home Ribbon, change the Effect to X-Ray in the property Tab, or pres the hotkey: X

Solid Color (HotKey: C)

The Solid Color effect will turn the selected object(s) the solid color the Effect Color is set to. Solid Color can be applied from the Home Ribbon or from the Effect property in the Properties Tab when the object is selected.

  1. Select an object or multiple objects by holding ctrl

  2. Click the Color Palette icon in the Home Ribbon, change the Effect to Solid Color in the Properties Tab, or press the hotkey: C

Highlight (Hotkey: H)

Effect Color

Effect color determines the color of all effects applied. In the Home tab of the Ribbon it will act as a global setting (lesson wide default) so when nothing is selected it will change the current effect color of all objects. You can change the effect color of just a single object through the objects property menu when selected. 

  1. Select the object or multiple objects by holding ctrl that have effects applied

  2. Select the effect color box in the Ribbon

  3. Select a color and select ok

  4. All object effects should now be the new color you selected and so will any future effect applied to other objects.

Remove Effects (Hotkey: Z)

Remove Effects will remove the effects and highlights applied to an object. In the Home tab of the Ribbon it will act as a global setting (lesson wide) so when nothing is selected it will clear effects of the whole model. You can clear an effect of just a single object through the objects property menu when selected. 

  1. Select the object or multiple objects, by holding ctrl, that have effects applied

  2. Click the Clear Effects icon (color drop with line through it) from the Home Ribbon
