Materials .bip vs .mtl
« on: November 29, 2011, 04:49:54 am »
I have some material libraries from K2 which are in the form of .bip files.

Is it possible to use these in K3 which has .mtl material libraries?

You should be able to open the BIP file in KS2 and from there export the materials to .mtl

Hello everyone, I've tried to export my BIP files but they are not working. It duplicates the same material and they do not look like what I had in Keyshot 2. At least in the Library. When placed on an actual part the materal is correct. Is there something that Im missing here?

Right mouse click in your materials tab.
