Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Material dialog box (Windows), part of SketchUp for Architecture: Details.
- So Chapter 06-02 we are looking at materials.…In the Windows environment, the Materials window…is loaded from the Window menu,…so down to Materials and that will load that.…Alternatively, you've got the Paint Bucket tool,…and that's B on the keyboard or click on the icon…and that will also launch it.…So this is slightly more compact than it is in the Mac,…and it's slightly easier to get access to…and create new materials.…But I'll just run through the main things that we've got.…So I'm showing the In Model materials.…
These represent the ones that we've created,…or we will create, and add to our objects.…These little triangles mean that it's applied to something.…If there's no triangle on the corner of something…then it's not been applied to something,…and if you want to purge out anything you don't want…then on the Details button, just click on that to expand it…and you can Purge Unused.…You could delete all of them as well,…if you wanted to. I wouldn't advise you did that.…The other nice thing about the Windows environment…
