    [Note] Note

    In the simplest case (ideal case) all materials used in catalog are already completely specified, so that you just have to pick them.

    In the following you can see how to create new materials or edit existing.

  2. Under Render material, call the respective dialog Render materials by clicking on the button ... and make a selection.

    Select "Eiche grau" / "Oak gray"

    Select "Eiche grau" / "Oak gray"

    In the overview on the left, specified render materials are listed with their color and name.

    When clicking on you can create and specify any number of new render materials.

    [Note] Note

    The selection of render materials in the PARTdesigner happens via ID. That's why both ID and Name should be uniquely assignable to the material.

    For ID do not use empty spaces and special characters.

    If newly created materials are not immediately displayed in the list, please click F5.
