Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding materials to objects, part of AutoCAD: Rendering.
- As you can see, Autodesk CAD has tons of materials.…Tons, I tell you!…So many that there will never be nearly enough.…What I'd like to do here is take a look…at an existing material,…then we're going to create a material using a template.…So to get started, let's jump into AutoCAD,…go to your Visualize tab,…let's hop over to Materials,…let's go to the Materials Browser.…Now, in the Materials Browser,…you'll see over here…we have the Home, Autodesk,…and we have the materials broken down by type.…What I like to do is scroll down to the bottom, here,…and find this little round ball with the plus sign on it,…creates a new material in the document.…
Let's click the dropdown…and I think I want to go with wood.…So let's select wood.…And it starts us off with whatever we want.…Now, the cool thing is…the image, so the image is what…we're concerned with here.…And what we have is wild cherry--whatever.…So go ahead and click on wild cherry.…So what this does is this opens up…the Material Editor Open File,…which is really cool…
