How to identify or match an existing applied material?


I am having trouble identifying what material is applied previously on certain surfaces. I would like to match that material and apply it to another surface.


have the Material panel open (Window->Default Tray Material should be ‘ticked’)
Click on the little house-icon in that panel, to see the ‘In Model collection’
Press ‘B’ (or select the paintBucket icon and watch the status bar bottom left:
The ‘modifier’ key for sampling material is the Alt key:
Mouse-over the wanted material, hold Alt (cursor changes in a pipet) and then click!
Now release Alt and your bucket is filled with the material and it is highlighted in the Material Panel.


Thank you. Works perfectly.
