Tip of the week: How can I assign different materials to the different components of a door or a window?

How can I assign different materials to the different components of a door or a window?

Each component of a VisualARQ object, like doors or windows, can have a different materials for rendering purposes , as well as display and printing properties.

All these properties can be assigned to each object and component from its attributes tab, in the object style dialog.

  • Select the door/window/object style desired > click on the black triangle to display its components > select the one you want to assign a specific material > click on the attributes tab and enable the override attributes option > specify a material from any of the options available: By layer, by parent or other

The materials can also be assigned to objects “by layer”, from the layer dialog box or individually “by object” from the properties dialog box after selecting the object.

Hi, 

I went through the tutorial however my material panel is a little bit different. The Plugin tab is missing from my panel and instead it called "Type". Also I use an other rendering application and its name is missing under Type. 

I realized the list is not the same as Rhino Material list, how can we import those materials (also with Thea render plugin)?
