Materials and Structure use templates in Creo plugin
« on: November 30, 2018, 06:11:46 am »
Hi
I am using Creo 4.0 with the Keyshot 8 plugin.
I setup a material template to map Creo materials to Keyshot materials. It all works, but I would like to have the template activated when I send my model to Keyshot.
That functionality is available in Materials and Structure when importing into Keyshot, outside of Creo.
So can I make my material template the default?
Your help is most welcome

You can have a material template automatically apply when using direct import, but not with a plugin as far as I know. If you export your model and import it into KeyShot, the import dialogue should give you the choice to use a material template.

Hi Will, Danny,

Just stumbled across this thread and I wanted to say I too am looking for the same feature in my thread here https://www.keyshot.com/forum/index.php?topic=23879.msg100208#msg100208

Was there any update on if something like that was going to be implemented?

Oh, if you're asking for material templates to automatically work when using the Creo plugin, perhaps the best idea is to request it in our feature request thread if you haven't already. You can find that here. https://www.keyshot.com/forum/index.php?board=8.0
