Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Updating and saving materials to a project, part of SketchUp for Architecture: Details (2015).
- So, Chapter 607, we're going to change this…hard core material out to an earthy material…and we're going to save it to our project folder.…I'm just going to show you that process.…It's kind of a deliberate mistake to…apply the incorrect material.…We want this really to look like earth…and not like this hard core.…The hard core's going to be applied to actual…hard core layer.…This just gives me an excuse to show you…some more things that you can do with materials.…The first thing I'm going to do is select one…from the drop down of the existing materials.…
So, under Ground Cover, we'll pick this one…sort of a ground cover dirt red.…We'll apply that to this material, so that's over written…that material and it looks a bit more appropriate…for our needs.…Then we go to the Model Materials and there it is.…So it's currently called Ground Cover Dirt Red,…so I'll change it to Existing Soil…(keyboard keys clicking)…and then hit Enter to save that so it's now Existing Soil.…It's got the little triangle next to it to say it's in use…
