Using Boole / Trying to Keep a Pattern

Recommended Posts

is there a way to have a boole object keep the cutout material from the main object? In the below image this is precicely what I want/need. However this was done with an obj model that is already cutout. I will need to animate the rods/cylinders within the box with some slight angle keyframes. When i recreated this with a boole object the inside is grey and I cannot get it to imprint with the stripes. Am I using the right tools? Is there a better way?

 

i have build this out using cloned blocks with green and blue material. I did try using a pattern material to create the stripes but that didnt work out as I had planned.

Just give the objects you are cutting out the same material as the box...

Oh right - just saw you built this out of a cloner which makes it all a bit more complicated. Probably best to abandon that in this case and just use a box and a gradient like I did above... that way you will avoid making the boole cut through all those individual objects, which is bound to cause problems at some point...

  • If i wanted the ends to be separate colors. is there a simple way to do this?

     

    In this image i ended up making 2 slices and set selecting those with 2 different materials. however this doesn't seem to translate well with the materials on the rods within the boole.

  • im going to be attempting this differently. ill be using an alpha within my striped material and then stack it into 2 other layers onto the boole.
