Previously, transparency could only be set by persistently changing the assigned appearance. Now you can set the transparency percentage levels for solid bodies, quilts, and tessellated geometry without applying appearances.

This enhancement also provides buttons to toggle the transparency of the objects.

For quilts and tessellated geometry, the toggle applies to all the geometry of that type in the model.

For solid bodies, only the bodies that are flagged as transparent are affected. To flag a body as transparent, select it or select the geometry contributing to the body, and then click Make Transparent to flag it.


Control of transparency for individual objects is only supported for bodies.
