Default Rocksim Opacity issue

Anyone else have a problem (and solution to) opacity not working on a part? Trying to model a section of PST with an internal structure and setting the opacity to 0 has no effect.

Eagle3,

I can't seem to duplicate the problem you are seeing. Are you sure you have the opacity mode selected in the View Screen? Make sure there is a green checkmark in the brown globe with a green border on right side; its the 5th button from the left in the menu bar at the top of the view screen (bottom panel). I have attached a RockSim file and screen shot of the simulation where I set all the outer body tubes to an opacity of 0.

I had tried making a transparent payload section on an old rocksim file and gave up and made a new one that worked. I wasn't aware of the opacity mode button in the 3D view and that's what the problem was.

Thanks!
