MAGNET Explorer: Model texture layers


The Visibility group allows elements and objects to be turned on and off in the project model layers.

Elements are considered:

  • Trees
  • Forests
  • Single elements

Objects are considered:

  • Buildings
  • Fences
  • Pipes

Rendering style

The Rendering Style group contains a variety of settings to control the appearance of the 3D view. 

For example, the Compass can be turned off. Or, switch to Wireframe mode to enable better exploration of the surface triangles.

Settings and texture paths

The Settings group provides access to the Texture Paths dialog box. Texture Paths allow MAGNET Explorer to look into several global folders and search for textures/materials.

MAGNET Explorer includes libraries for textures and sounds.

  • Basic libraries come with the installation packages.
  • Additional libraries can be installed separately.

Explorer supports multiple search paths for texture and sound libraries. The search paths can be edited from View > Settings

On the Settings panel, double-click Textures, which opens the Texture Paths dialog box to

  • Add a new path by clicking +.
  • Delete a path by clicking -.
  • Move a path up or down using the blue arrows.
