Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a material to an assigned layer, part of AutoCAD: Rendering.
Layers can have a material mapped to them as well.…It's not quite a straightforward as…simply going into the "Layers" dialogue,…but there's a way to do it.…By creating a new layer,…then a new material,…we will assign that material to the layer.…So, the first thing I want to do…is I want to draw something.…Let's go to a 3D view.…Remember, we can just hit "Shift",…"Wheel button",…we can zoom around in 3D.…I'd like to go to the "Solid" tab,…and I'm going to click on "Cylinder".…And I'm going to put a cylinder over here somewhere,…by simply clicking the centerpoint.…
I come out around eight feet or so,…I click the quadrant,…and then I'm going to come up,…I don't know, 20 feet or so.…Pretty nice.…So, the next thing I want to do…is create a new layer.…Let's go to the "Home" tab.…Let's go to our "Layers".…Let's go to "Layer Properties".…Let's create a new layer by clicking…on this little icon right here, "New Layer".…For the name, I'm going to simply call it "tube",…t-u-b-e,…and I'm going to make the color,…I guess I'll make it red.…
