I'm getting fairly frustrated with Design Options.
The situation is:
I have a topography with various sub-sections representing different plots on a site.
I then have 2 Design options - 1 for the first plot outlay - 2 for the second plot outlay.
This is fine.
I now have a camera view looking over 'plot outlay 1' to give a perspective view over the site.
What I want to do is:
Have 1 variation of the camera view which shows the topography (+ and linked houses) in standard materials.
Then have a 2nd variation of the camera view which shows the topography (+and linked houses) in a white reflective material (so it looks like a model).
I thought I could simply make a new design option set - make an option for 'standard materials' and another for 'white materials' - assign these design options to 2 copies of the camera view - THEN select the topography and add it to these design options also, so that within the camera views I could then 'Edit option - white materials' and change everything to look white...
Whenever I select the topography and 'Add to option set', it won't allow me to and gives me the error mesage "selected elements will not be added to option set because they already belong to another design option" (or similar)...
What can I do?
Can I make this method work?
Is there a better solution?
Sorry it is so long winded (as usual)...
Any help would be greatly apreciated, it is for my college work and I'm trying to go that extra mile!
