DC's and Multiple Material Selection Options - Coding Help

Postby tmt0009 » Wed Jan 22, 2020 5:08 pm

Hi All,

I’m kind of stuck on a Dynamic Component I’m trying to build. I’m trying to build a Dynamic Logo with multiple Sizing/Layer Dimension functions AND Material Preset functions based on a Brand Guide. For this example I’ve been working with TCU’s logo because there’s only 4 Brand Colors to choose from.

The problem is I’m not super familiar with the CHOOSE and OPTIONINDEX functions. I’m attaching the SketchUp file below with a stab at trying to get it to work in one of the components.

So to help narrow you down, I’m trying to create a Dynamic Logo that can change between 10 Preset Color Configurations AND be able to switch between Gloss, Matte, Emissive, and Metal Logo Material types.

So ideally I’d be able to select “Gloss” from the Material Type Drop Down in Options, and then Select “2-Color, Purple, Black” so that it returns a 2 Color Logo with the Gloss Material Set showing on the face.

You can see the materials are all labeled uniquely and placed in the individual objects so that the Material Function references them. But I can’t seem to get the Material to reference anything beyond “TCU_PURPLE_Matte”

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I know it’s a pretty big ask but hopefully it’s not as complicated as I think it’ll be.
