    Rendering bug related to split feature...

    Tod Mailler

      Greetings !


      I attached a part file as well as an assembly file to show the bug.


      A facet near a split cannot be set to a color that will propagate at the assembly level.


      This is a simple case to illustrate...


      1. I create a new part... a simple cube.
      2. I create a planar surface to cut the cube in half. (Split Feature)
      3. I hide one of the two half.
      4. I set the color of the remaining body to white. (At body level)
      5. I set one of its facet red.
      6. If i do a final rendering, everything looks fine.
      7. Then i create a new assembly.
      8. Import the part.
      9. Do a final rendering.
      10. The part is still white but the red facet remains "body basic color" so it shows white instead of red.


      Is this a bug ?...


      I have Solidworks 2011 and yes i turned the part arround to make sure the red facet wasn't hidden.


      Thanks !
