Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a material to a tool palette, part of Rendering with AutoCAD.
- If we didn't have enough menus,…toolbars, and ribbons already,…I think we need to look at one more vehicle,…in which AutoCAD allows you…to add information to your drawing.…That would be tool palettes.…Tool palettes are actually my favorite…when it comes to AutoCAD though.…When we're using tool palettes,…we're thinking beyond this specific drawing we're in,…and we're thinking about reusing this material…in the future, and having it at the ready.…So, to get started, I'm gonna jump…into my archway drawing.…What I wanna do now is bring up the tool palettes.…
To do that, I'm gonna go to my view tab,…and I'm gonna click on Tool Palettes,…and open up yet another dialogue.…Notice in my tool palettes we have…a lot of different items that we can choose from,…and we're gonna use some of them…in this course, but what I wanna do is…I wanna make a new tool palette.…So, I'm gonna right click right here,…and I'm gonna select New Palette,…and I'm gonna call it Custom Materials,…and I'm gonna hit enter.…
It's blank.…Now with this dialogue open,…
