Huston, I have a problem
show user profile  ChillyWilly
Greetings all. I linked a Revit 2013 model into a Max 2013 model. Several objects are coming into the 3ds model grouped in some way that I can't figure out. For instance the columns aren't grouped in the revit model and I didn't group them in Max but they are coming in grouped somehow anyway. This makes it difficult to apply uvw maps and materials because when I adjust the map on one column, it changes them on all the others. I tried several things including deleting the columns in revit and making separate extrusions for each column (in other words, I didn't make 1 column and copy it all around). I even started completely over with a new max model, but they are still coming in grouped. Any ideas?
Thanks people...

Sounds dumb but did you try ungrouping them? also, you could export them one at a time and they will all import in the correct position. If none of that works you can try detach the pillers at the subobject > element level.

Sorry to derail but I wondered if the problem was that you couldn't spell Houston. :)

can you ungroup them in max? or open the group and detach an object as an element from its self? Xforming?

Thanks Guys, Yes, Westcoast13, I am horribly spelling challenged. I'm thinking of starting 1st grade again. Yes, tried ungrouping in max, they aren't showing up as grouped so can't ungroup them. Same with the revit file. It's a stumper. I'll play around with it & when I figure it out I'll let you know what I find.
