Since there are no drawing tools in Perspective yet, my understanding is that I need to create SVGs for any drawn objects (pump, valve, etc). I’ve been able to create a basic valve SVG in draw.io and import it into perspective. I can apply a tint to the entire object without issue.
Ideally I want to color the valve head and body independently, like so:
I can’t figure out how to do this, but I’ve seen examples of it on the forum. Even the IA Perspective demo app seems to be capable of this, though I don’t understand how to replicate it in my project. The demo uses a ‘Drawing’ component which I seemingly don’t have access to.
When I originally imported my SVG to my view, I used the save and link option. When using that, I guess you can’t control any individual properties of the SVG, as it gets embedded via the Image component.
I’m not sure. Looks like it was created with Adobe Illustrator, there is something in the file which Ignition is baulking at though, because when you try to embed it, nothing shows up.
However, this is a huge file. If you need to animate it, then perhaps, but even then I would be very cautious. You might be better off creating separate SVG’s for the things which you need to animate and layering them over a base SVG.
If you don’t need to animate it then you should absolutely use the Save and Link option in this case. If you do that the SVG will be visible.
