Importing Alias (2014) .wire Files - Materials Not Working
« on: January 20, 2015, 07:38:09 am »
Imported Alias .wire file directly into Keyshot 5 and it comes in as one material.  Cannot assign different materials to different parts or surfaces.  Materials were assigned by layer in Alias.

Thanks.

Hi fuzznuts,

When importing, be sure "Keep Individual Parts" is checked and group by "Layer". Hope this helps.

Thanks.  I've now found that I can import Alias .wire files directly.  Also, assigning a shader in Alias to each different material seems to work for assigning materials in Keyshot.
