# Grid Attributes Incompatible with Planar Solids?

#1

I’m trying to create a planar solid with a matrix transform Grid Attribute. I’ve created the Grid Attribute, but when I enter its name under the ‘Material’ tab for the planar solid and click OK, this information is NOT retained … when I re-open the ‘Materials’ tab, the ‘grid attribute name’ box is once again empty. I’ve successfully used this same grid attribute for other shapes, and this problem only seems to occur when I attempt to use a grid attribute with a planar solid. Has anyone else run into this problem? Is there some way around this issue?

Hi @mboug

Sorry for the inconvenience.

This problem has been reported before. The good thing is that even the grid attribute name box is empty, it is actually set for the PlanarSolid material. You can check this by using this code:

?getnamed("solid","grid attribute name");

Our team is working to fix the problem. Thanks for your patience.
