Sets options for the surface styles and aspects used in 3D Model Data. This tab is only available when you are looking at the properties for a 3D Model Data document.
You can perform the following operations on this tab:
Select an existing surface style rule from the library and add it to the workspace.
Modify an existing surface style rule in the library and add it to the workspace.
Create a new surface style rule and add it to the library and the workspace.
Delete a surface style rule from the library or the workspace.
Rearrange the style rules in the workspace box of the Surface Style Rule Properties Dialog by using the Move Up and Move Down commands.
Import surface styles from the session file.
Set the aspects for the 3D Model Data.
Surface style rules
Style rule library
Specifies the current surface style rules in the Site database.
Specifies all the names for the surface style rules currently assigned to the workspace.
Adds the selected surface style rule to the workspace.
Removes a selected surface style rule from the workspace. To remove a surface style from the workspace, select the style in the Workspace list and click Remove.
Moves the selected style rule up one step in the Workspace list.

Activates the Surface Style Rule Properties Dialog to modify an existing surface style rule and add it to the database.
Creates a copy of the selected rule on the Clipboard. You use Copy to create a copy of a surface style rule in the Model database so you can modify the rule rather than create a new one.

Applies changes in surface style rules to the workspace.
Double-clicking a surface style rule also activates the Surface Style Rule Properties Dialog on which you can create or modify a surface style rule if you have permission.
Import from Session
Imports session surface style rules for the selected 3D Model Data component.
Opens the Select Aspects Dialog so you can specify the aspects to use for the 3D Model Data component.
When publishing 3D Model Data documents, the Simple Physical aspect is used by default if no other aspects are specified.
