algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Hi all,

This seems like a very simple problem but I can't figure out at all what is going wrong!

All I'm trying to do is create a material in a certain colour, then apply that material to a layer. But whenever I try this, the layer creation component won't recognise the material:

Is there something obvious I'm doing wrong? I have previously used this method successfully, although I no longer have access to the file.

For my actual project I have a model with a lot of elements from which I want to produce some renders where each element is a different colour, so baking and manually applying materials in Rhino is off the table. 

Thanks for your help,

I've discovered the root of the problem - the Materials component doesn't appear to work in Rhino 6. 

I dug out another model where I did something similar successfully, and sure enough, it works fine on Rhino 5 but won't generate the material property in Rhino 6.

If necessary I can revert to Rhino 5 for this exercise but if anyone can think of another way around this I would be very grateful.



Thanks for letting us know how you resolved it. I appreciate you for your time. And, I recently came into this extensive handbook, and I wholeheartedly endorse it. For me, the thorough explanations of the many payment options have been quite helpful. Look no further if you're looking for a resource to help you manage the complex world of online casino payments. Give other gamers access to this resource so they can take use of the plethora of knowledge it offers.

Ok, thanks.
