Material assignment on Solidworks parts
« on: May 13, 2010, 07:51:07 am »
Is it possible to apply materials onto a solidworks part at surface level?

Example: When I apply a wood material to a regtangular part (a wooden beam) material is assigned to all surfaces on the part and it is not possible to control the position of the woodgrain seperately on the different sides/surfaces of the part.

Is it possible to apply material on surface at a time, top, bottom, edges???

Or do I have to define or change something before importing my model into Keyshot??

Or maybe save my model as different filetype??

Hope someone can enlighten me!!

Thanks :)

Simply apply a different color to each surface inside SolidWorks prior to bringing it into KeyShot.
