Accent Strip Properties

For any properties not shown below, see Setting Object Properties.




Orientation follows contour

Bend the accent material to follow the path of the accent strip. Uncheck this option to apply the material without regard to the shape of the strip.




Max Elevation

Maximum elevation of the surface that the accent strip is applied to. For example, if the accent strip is placed partially or completely on top of a patio, and the Max Elevation is set to a lower elevation than the patio, then the accent strip will apply to the terrain below the patio, and ignore the patio itself. However, if the Max elevation property is set to a higher elevation than the patio, then the accent strip will ignore the terrain and only apply to the patio itself.
