How replace material & remove material from edge ?

Postby Daryan » Tue Dec 15, 2009 2:17 am

Hi all,

- How can i remove all material from all edge of the modele (edge only, not face) ? Is there a plugin for that ?
- How can i replace a material by an another in all the modele ? Is there a plugin for that ? Right clic, select, select all face with same material doesn't work beacause there is a lot of group and component.

Thanks by advance for your help.

Switch to Wire-frame Mode so that only Edges are now visible,
Select the Edges to be changed,
Set the current Material to <Default> in Browser,
Paint Selected Edges with it.
To check their Material - use Entity Info -
[Note that you can also change their Material in this dialog too]...

Realy good idea, i never think to use the Wire-frame mode. But i have a lot of group and component (more than a thousand), and i want to cleanup the Edge material, because they prevent me to purge unused material.

(the plugin doesn't work for component but it's a good start).
