Is there a way to reassign a material to an existing material?

materials

#1

I import my sketchup models into Lumion to render. I would like to figure out a way to reassign new materials to materials I already have in the model without going through and painting the entire material the new color. When I import it into Lumion it would be easier to assign a fewer amount of materials. Is this able to be done?

Hi @walesle,

You could use ThomThom’s extension called Material Replacer which will let you replace a material by another by simply clicking on them.

Hope this helps! :smile:

You can also right click on the material you would like to replace and select “Select All with Same Material”. After the selection, paint it with the material you want.
