good morning,

I'm using Softplan 2020 v2020.2.8.

I suspect I'm missing something in creating a 3D cylinder, a can of paint.

I have created five types paint (5 different models). In each model there is a stack of the same product.

I've attached a label to the individual model and it looks as expected.

However, when saving it as a new symbol, the individual label is stretched as one over the entire group of paint cans, instead of each individual can as it showed in the model.

In this jpg, I created the paint can using a solid cylinder, giving it a different building option than anything else.

The fixture is a symbol I created first (separately). The I copied the can to create them all.

Can texture options:

image size: 6'5"x 1'7", maintain aspect ratio




If you explode the symbol it reverts back to the model view.

I used the same options in the model (pic) as the symbol (pic)

(Please see attached images)


thank you,
