Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Modifying material positions, part of SketchUp for Architecture: Details (2015).
- So, Chapter 06-04, we're going to look at…modificaton of material positions,…and just run through some of the aspects of…applying material as well to various objects.…I've got some unconnected geometry.…This is a reverse face.…And I've got a group,…and I've got the matching components…of those two components,…which are the same thing.…Let's concentrate on this unconnected geometry first.…This surface looks different than the rest.…Not because I have applied a material to it,…but I've reversed the face.…
Now, on the Styles window, you can see that…every surface has a front and back color.…If I select that surface, then you'll notice up here…in entity info there's a front and a back color as well.…The only way I can flip this around to the white color…is by right-clicking on it and reversing face.…So that's really what happens with unconnected geometry.…On the entity info, you see the inside color…and the outside color.…
Now, if you select an object, there's only one box…appears on the entity info.…This is because what we're looking at…
