I am an architect, using Sketchup to create visuals for a client. Starting with a 3D view in Revit (2018.3 if it matters), I export to DWG 2010, then import that to SketchUp 2019 Pro. The imports in 2019 come in colored rather than with the default material applied. It’s particularly painful because it applies the randomly colored material to the front and the reverse face of all objects, so even when I have everything selected, I have to go ‘inside’ my walls to apply the default material to the reverse face as well as the obverse face. Since I’m importing something that has subcomponents, and maintaining them as subcomponents is useful to me, I also then have to go into every single subcomponent and apply the default material to both sides of the faces as well. This gives me no benefit, and adds noticeable time to my workflow.
Is there any way to apply the default materials to everything on import like it did in all previous editions? This new “feature” occurs regardless of whether I have the “Import Materials” checkbox ticked on the import options.
