Fluorescent light bar for ceiling

Hello everyone.

Started using this program a couple of days ago. The reason for starting using it is that we are moving our workshop.

I thought it would be nice to 3D it, in order to visualize how it will look.

So far, so good.

However, when adding lights to the various rooms, I could not fin any flurescent lights/bars for the ceiling.

Found a free object, and I got myself really worked up :-)

Unfortunately, there was no light properties!
I will be grateful for any suggestions

Regards Tore

Hi,

You must add light sources yourself.

Thanks for your advice. The default lights supplied have light properties that you can adjust. Any link to how I add this to for example a light strip?

Re: Fluorescent light bar for ceiling

You can add light-sources by using the supplied light sources, OR add light source properties to models editing the Furniture libraries (in the extra properties SH3D uses for models).

Either way, the light sources will always be spheres, so you need to simulate the light from a light strip with one or more light spheres. In addition to Veroniques hint about the blog, you can find lots of good light source tips in the forum.

Your best bet is probably to use several slightly scaled up light sources under the light strip (group them with the light strip so they are easy to duplicate and move around together).

Lykke til med verkstedflyttingen.
