Forgive me, I thought I was clear on the process. I can understand the confusion when I had used the free web version in my profile, only because the 2017 was not a selectable option and was in a position in which I personally did not pay for the program when I had required it years ago to play with.
Aside from that I am also not in the position to share the file. So I will try this again.
I created a very detailed house, outside and inside. It’s a small part of a larger project I’m working on. I then recreated that house as if it were a reversed image of the original. I was not sure how it was all going to look like once I added materials onto the house, so I took some time and did so to see what would have been best but never came to a solid option. I noticed that now that I added materials and paint to the house things were moving a bit slower so I selected the whole house and then in the “Default tray” under “Materials” pressed the “Select material to paint with to default” and it cleared all the materials I had added to the house. As a precaution incase it wasn’t just the materials that I added to the house that was slowing down the program, I copied a set of markers and dropped that into another file so I can expand to the details of the small block with the plan of dropping in the house later.
Later came and I had a better idea of what materials to use to make my house look. So I went back to the original file with the house to use the paint option to add the materials I wanted and found that they were not being placed onto the house at all. I thought I might have just reversed faces, but that was not happening either.
i just want to be able to get this house back to a state so that I can go and add materials onto it again, then I can drop it into the other file, then move on.
