Change material of multiple components

Got an idea to improve SketchUp?

Change material of multiple components

Postby pohlr1 » Thu Feb 22, 2018 6:27 am

Now I know what you are thinking, there are already threads on this but I think what I need is a bit different, I have looked and looked on this.

See attachment, what I am trying to do is turn the geometry material of the bottom plates to treated. Sometimes I have douzens of these walls and doing this manually would take hours. I would also like to change some of the headers to LVL. We can even keep the color because why this is important is because I use a addon called cutlist and it works great except it lists materials as they are like material 9 for instance.

Thanks!

HAHA I think i just found a slilght workaround, If I change the paint cutlist will actually use that name, works.

That's not a slight work around. CutList is designed to work that way.

You could make a set of colors with custom names to apply to the different components. If you apply them to the faces in the components, you only need to do that to a single instance and all other instances will get the same treatment. Save your collection of customized colors for later use.
