Material Properties

The Material type exposes the following members.

Properties
  NameDescription
Public propertyAlphaTransparency
Public propertyAmbientColor
Public propertyComponentStatus
Gets or sets the component status of the model component.
(Inherited from ModelComponent.)
Public propertyComponentType
Returns RenderMaterial.
(Overrides ModelComponentComponentType.)
Public propertyStatic memberDefaultMaterial
Public propertyDeletedName
Gets the name of a component that is deleted.
(Inherited from ModelComponent.)
Public propertyDiffuseColor
Public propertyDisableLighting
Public propertyDisposed
Indicates if this object has been disposed or the document it originally belonged to has been disposed.
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Public propertyEmissionColor
Public propertyFresnelIndexOfRefraction
Gets or sets the Fresnel index of refraction of the material, default is 1.56
Public propertyFresnelReflections
Gets or sets if fresnel reflections are used.
Public propertyHasId
Returns a value indicating whether the component has an ID.
(Inherited from ModelComponent.)
Public propertyHasIndex
Returns a value indicating whether the component has an Index.
(Inherited from ModelComponent.)
Public propertyHasName
Returns a value indicating whether the component has a Name.
(Inherited from ModelComponent.)
Public propertyHasUserData
Gets true if this class has any custom information attached to it through UserData.
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Public propertyId
Gets or sets the ID of this material.


In Rhino for Windows 6.6, this member is inherited from ModelComponentId.
Public propertyIdIsLocked
Returns a value indicating whether the component ID is already locked.
(Inherited from ModelComponent.)
Public propertyIndex
Gets or sets the model component index attribute.
(Inherited from ModelComponent.)
Public propertyIndexIsLocked
Returns a value indicating whether the component Index is already locked.
(Inherited from ModelComponent.)
Public propertyIndexOfRefraction
Gets or sets the index of refraction of the material, generally >= 1.0 (speed of light in vacuum)/(speed of light in material)
Public propertyIsComponentStatusLocked
The component status itself can be locked. This returns an indication.
(Inherited from ModelComponent.)
Public propertyIsDefaultMaterial
By default Rhino layers and objects are assigned the default rendering material.
Public propertyIsDeleted
Deleted materials are kept in the runtime material table so that undo will work with materials. Call IsDeleted to determine to determine if a material is deleted.
Public propertyIsDocumentControlled
If true this object may not be modified. Any properties or functions that attempt to modify this object when it is set to "IsReadOnly" will throw a NotSupportedException.
(Overrides CommonObjectIsDocumentControlled.)
Public propertyIsReference
Rhino allows multiple files to be viewed simultaneously. Materials in the document are "normal" or "reference". Reference materials are not saved.
Public propertyIsSystemComponent
True if this model component is a system constant.

An incomplete list of system constant model components is below:

  • ON_ModelComponent::Unset

  • ON_InstanceDefinition::Empty

  • ON_Linetype::Unset
  • ON_Linetype::Continuous
  • ON_Linetype::ByLayer
  • ON_Linetype::ByParent

  • ON_Layer::Unset
  • ON_Layer::Default

  • ON_TextStyle::Unset
  • ON_TextStyle::Default
  • ON_TextStyle::ByLayer
  • ON_TextStyle::ByParent

  • ON_DimStyle::Unset
  • ON_DimStyle::Default
  • ON_DimStyle::DefaultInchDecimal
  • ON_DimStyle::DefaultInchFractional
  • ON_DimStyle::DefaultFootInchArchitecture
  • ON_DimStyle::DefaultMillimeterSmall
  • ON_DimStyle::DefaultMillimeterLarge
  • ON_DimStyle::DefaultMillimeterArchitecture
(Inherited from ModelComponent.)
Public propertyIsValid
Tests an object to see if it is valid.
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Public propertyMaterialIndex
Public propertyStatic memberMaxShine
Public propertyName
Public propertyNameIsLocked
Returns a value indicating whether the component Name is already locked.
(Inherited from ModelComponent.)
Public propertyPreviewColor
Very simple preview color function for GUIs.
Public propertyReflectionColor
Public propertyReflectionGlossiness
Gets or sets the reflection glossiness.
Public propertyReflectivity
Gets or sets how reflective a material is, 0f is no reflection 1f is 100% reflective.
Public propertyRefractionGlossiness
Gets or sets the refraction glossiness.
Public propertyRenderMaterial
Get the RenderMaterial related to this Material. Will create a new RenderMaterial if none exists. This can happen for older documents.
Public propertyRenderMaterialInstanceId
Public propertyRenderPlugInId
The Id of the RenderPlugIn that is associated with this material.
Public propertyShine
Gets or sets the shine factor of the material.
Public propertySpecularColor
Public propertyTransparency
Gets or sets the transparency of the material (0.0 = opaque to 1.0 = transparent)
Public propertyTransparentColor
Public propertyUseCount
Number of objects and layers that use this material.
Public propertyUserData
List of custom information that is attached to this class.
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Public propertyUserDictionary
Dictionary of custom information attached to this class. The dictionary is actually user data provided as an easy to use sharable set of information.
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Public propertyUserStringCount
