Sketchup Material Color Changes


#1

Is it possible to change the color of a material in the existing Sketchup Library?


#3

But only the In Model collection colors and textures.


#4

Thanks Mike - how do i do that?


#5

select the material you wish to change in the materials browser, then select the edit tab.


#6

Thanks Mics I’ve got that part but I want change the color. Looking at simple siding texture that is grey (standard to the SKP materials ) and I want to make it blue-ish… I only see a way to change the size and opacity…

firstly I suggest creating a NEW material rather than editing an existing one in the library so you retain the original.
secondly…in the edit tab an interface opens with a color wheel. move the color wheel to change the color.

And here’a moving version, if you are using Mac it will be similar but not exactly the same.
Please fill in your profile correctly so we don’t have to ask.

Right… How do i get the color wheel to come up?


#10

looks like you have a color picker in your UI at the top far left icon.

Super fabulous moving help Box! Thank you Thank you!!!

Why am i not seeing that EDIT tab (next to the select)?

Did you just record a video to do that? (yes i am on a mac…)


#12

As it’s a Mac I can’t help, never used one.


#13

Yeah, but when i use that color picker - it gets rid of the texture and just makes it a solid color…


#14

you didnt ask about editing a texture. You have to select the texture and edit it. the same way.


#15

Oh…sorry thanks for the help and suggestions Mics! I do appreciate it…


#16

It is under color


#17

Thank you all for the great advice here. For whatever reason, I don’t seem to see/have the same options as you all. Maybe because it is on a mac… maybe it is because I am on Pro2016… anyway, thanks for trying to help me. Maybe I will repost my question with MAC in the heading… Thanks again!!!
